A few weeks ago I read a thread here where some scout described Sam Darnold's footwork as "a cow on ice." I took it with a grain of salt since most articles leaked in the days before the draft are usually something you can take for granted, because agents pay for that shit to be leaked to promote other players. After watching 8 different full game every-play videos, not just highlights, I have some concerns. I'm not concerned overall, but this guy needs to get coached, a lot. Don't fool yourself about highlight videos. Most of the plays you will see are the ones where he is on the run. Watch some video of when he's NOT pressured. When he has a clean pocket. He kind of looks like a LB with a good arm playing QB. He overthrows, shows bad anticipation, and hurries when he doesn't need to. This guy needs some help. I like Bates. Let him coach this guy. We don't need another Sanchez.
