...also we are all aware that he DID play some WR in college and therefore his athletic ability transfers more easily to WR in the Pros than it does to QB.
He has averaged 7 TD's and 3 interceptions per year over his college career, completing 51.4 % of his passes ....I dont see him as a replacement for Charlie Batch anytime soon.
A good quaterback coach (which he did not have at Washington) could take his basic athletic ability and turn him into a good backup quaterback.
I'd rather draft an actual receiver than draft a project.
