The other: Eagles ‘ Carson Wentz , drafted No. 2 two years ago out of North Dakota State.
Darnold : His No. 1 guy because of Darnold’s ability “to beat you from both inside the pocket and outside the pocket.”
Allen : Has the “biggest upside in the draft” but has to improve his accuracy, timing and anticipation.
Rosen : The “most natural thrower in the draft” but compared him to ex-Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford due to questions about his durability.
Mayfield : He said “the film’s good” but questioned whether some teams want Mayfield “being the face of your franchise.”
Jackson : It was mostly positive about Jackson, who Mayock said is the most “spectacular athlete in the draft” and that a team might have to change their schemes and philosophy to fit his skillset.
Still, Mayock sees none of these quarterbacks — even though he’s particularly high on Darnold and Jackson — as the same level of prospect that Luck or Wentz were coming into the NFL .
“When you look at those five kids,” Mayock said, “history tells you we’ll be lucky if we get 2-3 that become franchise quarterbacks.”
“He does everything really well on the baseball field. He can hit. He uses the entire field. His strike zone recognition a I think he’s going to be a guy who walks over time. He’s a really good defender at all three spots and could legitimately play short. That’s the kind of defender he is. Kind of that baseball IQ, baseball clock. He just seems to have all those things Look, we think he has a chance to be a special player, a complete player. But I don’t know that he’s going to wow people, necessarily, with his skill set from a raw power, speed or antying like that a this is a really complete ball player.”
Does he remind you of anybody?
“It’s funny, I was trying to think a little bit last night actually. I don’t know. Hopefully, we’ll have those conversations where we can make those comparisons at some point, but no one jumps out right now.”
Lucic: It was one of the best games I’ve ever been a part of. Especially because 5,000 fans had left, so there was only between 10-12,000 fans left in the stands, but they were so loud. We were playing for the ones that stuck around. But this wasn’t an F-you to the ones that left or anything. I just remember the next morning how the highlights of the game were everywhere and everyone in the city was talking about it. I think that comeback ultimately drove us into the final.
