depends on where he ends up in the nfl. he has all the physical tools required for the job, i think if he ends up in a good system with good coaches he can be very good, but he is still pretty raw and has a lot to learn. if some shitty team drafts him then throws him to the wolves, he might not be able to overcome that. hopefully he doesnt get drafted by one of the perennial shitshow teams.

STL would be a dream scenario for him.

I'm worried he goes to Oakland. That would be a large obstacle to overcome.

How is he different from Kaepernick? Real question.

well the biggest difference is that mariota is a lot more humble and quiet than kaep, but in terms of football they are pretty similar. kaeps arm is a bit stronger than mariotas, mariota plays a bit more conservatively than kaep and tends to make less mistakes.

Mariota plays like a 6'4 Russell Wilson.

He's not Peyton Manning in the pocket, but doesn't look to run "just because."

He'll step up in pocket, evade a rusher and reset instead of releasing outside the pocket far more than you would think given his wheels.

Mariota doesn't make a lot of pro throws. I'm not sure how easily he makes the transition to the pros if he's not in that kind of offense.

TB Buccaneers have the #1 pick in the draft and I would be the farm that Mariota gets his name called.

That's going to be a dangerous offense with Vincent Jackson, Mike Evans, Austin Sefarian-Jenkins and Doug Martin.

Mariota is going to be great. He has the total package.

He is basically a 6'4" version of Russell Wilson.

Really difficult to say given the offense he plays in. Very little actual Nfl concepts and throws he has to make. I honestly cant say what he does better than rg3.

Isn't that always the case for mobile QBs?
