    Listen, if I wasn't comfortable making evaluations on my own that can stand quite apart from the rest of the crowd, I wouldn't do so. I'm pretty comfortable with that. So when someone comes at me on one of my opinions and says yeah but so and so rates the guy this way, I don't know what you expect me to say. You expect me to change my mind? If I change my mind, it's for my reasons, like I recently began changing my mind on Nate Enderle, because I'm tired of the bad decision making which keeps showing up over and over and over again.
    Perhaps just your reason of having Yates rated much higher than most.

    Let's compare this (Highlights of Tom Brady at the University of Michigan):



    To this (Highlights of Ricky Stanzi at the University of Iowa):



    Any thoughts???

    Their style of play is very similar in my eyes. The only significant difference I can discern is Stanzi's slight size advantage in the thighs/calves, something Brady has obviously improved since going pro.

    Obviously neither one was Elway at Stanford or Marino at Pitt. However, I think it is worth spending a third or fourth-rounder on Stanzi to see if he can make the same translation to the pros that Brady did...

    They're very similar in stature, pocket presence, and arm strength. Both do a good job of going through their progressions, Brady goes through them a little quicker. The differences are very subtle.... Brady sets up just a fraction quicker, and has better overall mechanics from the ground up and more compact delivery.

    It's the intangibles that made Tom Brady into what he is... If Stanzi is as hellbent on proving the NFL teams wrong that passed on him as much as Brady, he'll be a starting NFL quarterback sooner than anyone thought.

    However, winning 3 superbowl rings, throwing 50 TD's and 8 INT's in a single season, and winning multiple league MVP titles is obviously a pretty tall task..

    I agree with your post, Slimmy, especially on the intangibles aspect. Intangibles are often overlooked, especially when it comes to evaluating rookies, hence Tom Brady going in the sixth round, Zach Thomas going in the fifth round, etc. Ignoring intangibles leads to making decisions such as putting Ryan Leaf above Peyton Manning on your draft board, to give an extreme example. Or, for another example, drafting Blair Thomas second overall instead of taking Emmit Smith, who falls to seventeenth (As much as I loved Richmond Webb, imagine if Shula had partnered Marino with Smith for the 1990s???)

    I also wanted to complement the video with a statistical comparison of Stanzi's and Brady's junior/senior seasons (Put together quickly via Excel/ImageShack):



    It is hard to envision a tighter correlation...

    I really like the comparison between these two. Stanzi is the first rookie I have ever seen who absolutely reminds me of Brady in almost every way. There is no doubt in my mind that rolling the dice on him in the third or fourth-round is a no-brainer even with the plethora of more physically talented and flashy QBs who will go before him in the draft.

    I like Stanzi as well. The few games I've seen him play, I thought he came across as pretty solid. But I know CK watches a lot more of these guys and watches them closer so maybe he does know something. In either case, for the kids sake, I hope this regime doesn't draft him as we've seen what a marvelous job they do at developing QBs.

    I'd be curious to see what your success rate has been.. as I really enjoy reading your perspective.
    Its not impressive. He was all up about Jerry Houghes last year and we all know how bad he was this year. I would take anything that CK says with a grain of salt. Just because he spends hours of "scouting" players doesnt mean he knows anything. No one really knows how the players will pan out.

    As far as TJ yates goes, I have no idea what CK see in Yates. I live in Carolina and I can tell all of you that Yates isnt NFL starter material. He's thin skinned and a little bit of a ****. He's not a vocal leader and he doesnt have great measurables. He plays it safe and doesnt play to win and doesnt like to take chances. He holds the ball too long and he goes to his first read, thus staring down his WR's. I compare him to Brian Brohm from Louiville. similar type throwing motion, both have good football IQ but Brohm wasnt able to keep up with the speed of the NFL and I think Yates will be the same way.

    That's a nice comparison to be sure. If Stanzi works as hard as Brady and gets in the right situation I think he will definitely exceed expectations much like Brady did.
