Comparing my evaluation of Stidham to NFL.com's of Garoppolo:

JIMMY GAROPPOLO, QB, EASTERN ILLINOIS

  • Urgent decision-maker
  • Made a lot of one-look reads against FCS defenses
  • Good Anticipation
  • Hangs the deep ball
  • Very tough in the pocket
  • Didn't always see pressure coming
  • Lightning fast and mechanically sound release

JARRETT STIDHAM, QB, AUBURN

  • Intelligent decision-maker who can make full-field reads
  • Limited turnover-worthy plays
  • Was rarely asked to make NFL reads at Auburn
  • Accuracy was hit-or-miss in 2018
  • Tends to stand too far back in the pocket
  • Some ability to scramble
  • Quick and efficient throwing motion with some issues
  • Footwork isn't great

There's some comparable stuff there.

One thing to note is that Stidham won't have the aid of Jerry Schuplinski, who moved on to the Dolphins. My understanding is Jerry was always the one acting as the QB coach for the younger guys.

 

Nice one bro.

How can you tell when a QB isn't asked to make NFL reads? What would be an example of an NFL read vs non-NFL read?

A lot of colleges just make the QB look to one or two targets and then throw on basically every play, instead of having to scan the full field or play more complex NFL defensive schemes.

OK. So, on a stick for example - he'd just be looking to see if the LB follows the flat (then throw stick) or if he guards the stick (then throw flat)? 

I asume NE's scheme is pretty complex

Yeah, like that. The college game just doesn’t challenge quarterbacks as much from the mental side of things.
