I dont think his arm is particularly great, he has zero mobility, he is a good decisionmaker and is accurate but he crumbles in the pocket when he doesnt have great protection. I saw at least 4 games this year, where he was average or worse and its not like they were against great defenses either. Im also skeptical because the USC system is very simple scheme wise so i dont know how he will handle a complicated NFL system (although as i said i recognize he is bright) and because Matt, going back to HS, has always been surrounded with great talent.
Actually thats exactly why I want to watch him next year, Closely. He did breakdown a couple of times, but if he can learn from that, and respond to that, he does possess good decision making skill, and extremely good accuracy. But that might not matter, or maybe it will.
Bottom line is he's still got to PROVE IT this year.
BTW- SoCal, thanks for watchin' out for me.
