Exactly. Junior's not out on the road interviewing these guys, giving them Rohrshack personality tests. He grades film, and Russell's arm definitely is/was other-worldly off-the-charts, better than Elway's. I think even equal to Randall Cunningham and Jeff George.
And there's the rub. The three strongest arms I've ever seen ... and not a brain between them.
I will laugh that the Raiders wasted their #1 overall choice though
