Bryce Petty report

Weaknesses

Scouts concerned he could be product of Baylor's one-read system. Has tendency to spray the ball against zone coverage on intermediate routes. Can extend plays but won't make many plays downfield once he extends. Mistakes happen when forced to come off of first read. Struggles when defenders are near his feet. Yards per attempt declined in 2014 and screens were a much higher percentage of his passes. Struggles to pull himself from the doldrums when having a poor game. Nose of the ball dives when he doesn't drive throws with his lower body. Must learn to read defenses and get through his progressions when he joins the NFL.

Draft Projection

Round 4

Sources Tell Us

"My grade is a projection based on what I think he can do rather than what he did this year. I think his back was a bigger problem for him than people realize." -- AFC North area scout*

"Offenses that ask quarterbacks to look to the sidelines so coaches can make the pre-snap reads will never crank out NFL ready quarterbacks. Those quarterbacks all need redshirt years in the league." -- AFC West area scout*

"After watching the tape, talking to both guys and seeing them work out, I have Petty ahead as my third quarterback." -- AFC quarterbacks coach

NFL Comparison

Austin Davis

Bottom Line

NFL evaluators felt like Petty's senior season was disappointing, but those same evaluators love his size, leadership and intangibles. He needs a year or two of practice time and camp work to learn how to get through his progressions, but has the intelligence to do that. Petty flashed plenty of arm strength at the NFL Scouting Combine and as the draft draws closer, teams might very well begin to conceptualize Petty fitting into their offense as a potential starter of the future.

One read
Struggles in zone
Gets in doldrums


No no no no

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

Re: 2015 NFL Draft Day Discussion Thread

I'm cautiously optimistic we draft a kid who will be a potential DAY 1 starter. Hopefully Ireland and his team did their due diligence & we stay away from any 1st/2nd round "projects".

Who dat

Saints trade down to #23 and select DT Brown picking up a late #2 and select Petty with that pick.

Saints could steer off course, take Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty with late first-round pick, according to report | NOLA.com

If that happens the Graham trade looks horrific

Graham + 4th for Unger and a back up QB(one with a 3/4th round grade by most reports)

I'm keeping busy trimming my trees and doing yard work all day. I'll be too tired to yell at the TV hopefully. I'll start drinking shortly.
