Matt Flynn QB LSU
Matt has good size to play his position.
He has a strong arm and can make all the throws with
solid velocity. He
does a great job throwing on the move and moving in the pocket
to give himself more time to make a play.
He has good feet and understands how to move in the
pocket and pass the ball to make plays rather than tuck the ball
and run to make plays.
Matt is starting to show strong leadership skills.
He seems to be the type of QB that likes to lead by
example and as his confidence grows in his own play, his
leadership skills grow with it.
He does a very good job managing a game plan and
understands situational football.
Matt’s talents translate well to the next level; he has
the potential to be a franchise QB for the team that drafts him.
NEEDS TO IMPROVE
Matt just needs more confidence in his own abilities, which
should come with more repetitions.
He’s been held back from being the QB of LSU for no other
reason than the coaches made a promise to play another kid ahead
of him. He was
never beaten out of his position.
TALENT BOARD ROUND 1
I’m going to tell you right now -- and you can say whatever you
want to say: Matt
Flynn will be a better NFL QB than JaMarcus Russell.
There, I said it!
I bet no one will have the guts to say it but me.
He are some reasons I believe this:
Matt is smarter, is more mature, does not have a weight
problem, gets rid of the ball quicker, goes through his
progressions, does not get locked onto one receiver, has quicker
feet in the pocket, throws with more consistent accuracy, is
more coachable, and understands that a leader does not lead by
being pals with his buddies on the team -- he leads by
understanding what the job expects of him.
Matt has gotten better every time I have seen him play.
He has a strong arm and a good overall understanding of
what it takes to be a QB.
I consider Matt Ryan (QB Boston College), John David
Booty (QB USC) and Matt Flynn as the top QB’s in this draft.
There will be a lot of opinions flying around about QB’s
in this draft, but believe me, these three are the top and the
most ready for the next level with the quickest LTI.
A lot of people are going to try and throw Brian Brohm
(QB Louisville) and Chad Henne (QB Michigan) into the mix, but
the truth is that both of those QB’s have a lot of trouble
making decisions when there is a big time pass rush coming down
on them. Brian and
Chad both panic and lose their accuracy when they have to move
They might be good solid QB’s in the future, but only the two
Matt’s and Booty have the potential to be franchise QB’s.
