2019 NFL Draft Analysis: Projected First Round Quarterbacks

Every week up until the 2019 NFL Draft on April 25, The Barber’s Chair will post weekly scouting reports of the top prospects to watch in this year’s selection class. The players are listed in no particular order. The heights and weights of each athlete were gathered from NFL.com’s official Combine results page.


Daniel Jones
Duke | 6’5” | 221 lbs.

Strengths: Decisive with his quick throws. Great short accuracy. Doesn’t get careless when the play breaks down. It showed with his limited turnovers. Will carve up a zone defense all the way down the field. Good at throwing on the run. Can run a read-option. Broke some long runs for touchdowns. Knows how to read the defenders. Scored several touchdowns because he waited for the defender to bite then threw it behind them.

Weaknesses: Needs to learn to be a pure pocket passer. Not fast enough to be considered mobile. Broke those long TDs but was getting less than five yards on most of his attempts. Never saw him attempt to slide. Would like to see him air it out more, especially when they’re down. His deep balls were either underthrown or dropped.

Pro Comparison: Nick Foles. Limited turnovers with an unnecessary infatuation with running the ball early in his career. Will likely flip-flop between competent starter and solid backup for several years until he finds a groove.


Drew Lock
Missouri | 6’4” | 228 lbs.

Strengths: Beautiful deep ball. High-arching and leads his receivers with it. Nice side-arm throw. Rips teams apart in the middle of the field. Maximizes the strengths of his tight end. Some eye-popping pro level throws. Great passes throwing toward the sideline. Knows when and how to slide. Had an incredible 13 TD / 0 INT ratio on play-action last season.

Weaknesses: Needs to learn to climb in the pocket for the type of QB he is. He either stays flat-footed or rolls to the right when his first read isn’t there. Took advantage of favorable match-ups but never rose to the level of greater competition.

Pro Comparison: Matthew Stafford. Visible arm talent but would be better served with an established run game.

I had the same takeaway from watching both guys. I’m really interested to see how much better they can be when surrounded by pro talent. Neither of them had the help of a legit running attack and Daniel Jones’ receivers had an inexcusable amount of drops. Both guys flashed major potential so let’s see if their skills can translate into NFL-style offenses.


Kyler Murray
Oklahoma | 5’10” | 207 lbs.

Strengths: Happy feet. His feet are never flat and are always moving in case he has to take off. Very skilled runner but is still a pass-first quarterback. Running is a last resort. Crazy elusiveness that allows him to change directions without altering speed. Oklahoma’s poor defense forced him into many shootouts but he never lost composure. Baseball background taught him to create effortless throws at all angles, speeds, and distances. Insane improvisation skills.

Weaknesses: I’m worried his great offensive line at Oklahoma spoiled him. His NFL o-line may not allow him to dance around in the pocket as much. Needs to learn to slide better. Lost a fumble against West Virginia from falling forward. Has to slide earlier as well. NFL linebackers are going to close in on him a lot faster.

Pro Comparison: Russell Wilson. Can make magic on a broken play. Able to run a read-option based offense or drop back every snap if needed. Both have the baseball background as well.


Dwayne Haskins
Ohio State | 6’3” | 231 lbs.

Strengths: Hyper productive (50 TDs) against solid competition with limited starting experience. Already looks very mature and polished. Climbs the pocket well while always keeping his eyes downfield. Accurate throws on the run. Takes what the defense gives him. Spreads the ball around without forcing it to anyone.

Weaknesses: Heavy feet. Isn’t always able to escape when the pocket collapses. Rarely faced with the adversity of having to play from behind. Lost against Purdue for this reason. Overzealous with fitting balls into tight windows.

Pro Comparison: Jared Goff. Possesses all the intangibles and is capable of leading a dominant team with the right pieces and coaching staff.

2019 NFL Draft Analysis: Wide Receivers

Every week up until the 2019 NFL Draft on April 25, The Barber’s Chair will post weekly scouting reports of the top prospects to watch in this year’s selection class. The players are listed in no particular order. The heights and weights of each athlete were gathered from NFL.com’s official Combine results page.

AJ Brown
Ole Miss | 6’0”| 226 lbs

Strengths: Intelligent route-runner that commands targets. Averaged over seven catches per game in 2018. Will always get open in a zone or soft coverage. Has good hands and can improvise. Focuses on getting open every play rather than aiming for a home run. Found success against highest level of competition.

Weaknesses: Worked mostly in the slot. Teams may want to move him around. Fast but wont take the top off a defense. Rarely faced press coverage. Not sure if he can out-muscle someone.

Pro Comparison: Jarvis Landry


DK Metcalf
Ole Miss | 6’3” | 228 lbs

Strengths: Other-worldly athlete that stole the show at the combine. Rare combination of strength and straight-line speed for someone his size. Good at come-back and hook routes. Will make you pay if he gets defensive back out of position.

Weaknesses: Often glued to the cornerback. Has a really difficult time separating against above average competition. Would disappear on film for extended periods. Only wins in softer coverage. Very limited route tree and had a few bad drops. Someone his size needs to get better at boxing out DBs for jump balls.

Pro Comparison: Sammy Watkins

One benefit of the doubt I’ll give to Metcalf is that Jordan Ta’amu, his quarterback at Ole Miss, still has a lot of room to grow in terms of accuracy and making progressions. However, once I started watching the tape, it made a lot more sense as to why his stats didn’t match his combine workout. He’s still learning to be a wide receiver. He can be a great compliment opposite of a veteran wideout but forcing him into a WR1 slot would be too much to ask right now.


N’Keal Harry
Arizona State | 6’2” | 228 lbs

Strengths: Big, strong receiver that cranked out as many reps (27) as Metcalf at the combine. Good hands with the ability to create something special after the catch. Great control of his body for catch jump balls and back shoulder throws. Had his best moments and production working out of the slot. Good slants and double moves.

Weaknesses: Has a hard time beating outside corners. Rarely fools them with his route running. Worried he’ll get shut down if he doesn’t move to the slot full-time. Looks sluggish at times. Almost looks like he lost a step between seasons. That provided inconsistent tape as a result. He’ll alternate between average and superstar. Created a couple big plays where he reversed field. Hopefully that doesn’t cause big loss plays in the NFL.

Pro Comparison: Anquan Boldin, but needs to get better


Parris Campbell
Ohio State | 6’0” | 205 lbs.

Strengths: A versatile receiver with world-class speed (4.31). Used a lot with jet sweeps and can return kickoffs. Sneaky good route runner but can get even better. Doesn’t need much room to burn you after the catch. Will get open over the middle all day long. Torched a 10-1 Michigan defense (6-192-2) in every way he knew how. Ceiling could be very high in the right opportunity.

Weaknesses: Very rarely put in a position where he needed to make contested catches. Ohio State knew how to showcase his speed while hiding his lack of strength. His NFL team needs to do the same. Had a couple of stretches in 2018 with a lack of production.

Pro Comparison: Curtis Samuel


Marquise “Hollywood” Brown
Oklahoma | 5’9” | 166 lbs.

Strengths: Absolute burner that can create unreal separation behind the safeties. Not just a straight-line runner as he can be devastating after the catch. Lines up all over the line of scrimmage. Doesn’t shy away from the CB1, regardless of his size. Somehow never gets tired over the course of a game. Will find a way to get open when his quarterback needs to improvise. Refuses to get tackled. Can catch balls over the shoulder with a defender on top of him. Turns on the jets as soon as he sees a DB out of position. Not a one-trick pony. Found success running various routes rather than just streaks and deep posts.

Weaknesses: The pillowy defenses of the Big 12 gave him plenty of room to reach his top speed. Hardly ever faced a high-level press corner that could put the clamps on him. Scouts will obviously see his size as an issue. Not going to box out many guys. Needs to put on some weight so he can endure getting tackled long-term.

Pro Comparison: Tyreek Hill in T.Y. Hilton’s body

The Sports World is in the Middle of this Weird Period where it Kinda Sucks
IMG_1907.JPG

We’ve entered the lull in the sports calendar where the NFL has given way to spring training and the NBA is in full swing, quickly approaching its always-extravagant All-Star Game this weekend in Charlotte. This should be one of the most exciting times of the year - fresh off a thrilling Super Bowl, the anticipation of spring baseball and new faces on new ballclubs giving way to a captivating playoff race that only The League can provide.

Instead, the Big Game was a flop, highlighted by a sixth championship ring for that guy and that coach and that team everyone is tired of, 100 of Baseball’s biggest free agents remain unsigned, and while the NBA is in the midst of its most interesting Eastern Conference playoff race in almost a decade, the drama off the court has been much better water cooler talk than the action on it.

Hockey may be good, but unless the Blackhawks are going to the playoffs I wouldn’t know.

The Super Bowl was an anomaly. After the highest scoring season in NFL history, fans expected a high-octane match-up with the Rams, one of the league’s best attacks who delivered an all-timer against the Chiefs back in November, and the Patriots, with the greatest player and coach in history gunning for history. What we got was a defensive struggle - both on the field and on the eyes. No one cared if Tom Brady and Bill Belicheck won their record SIXTH Super Bowl together; the game was a slog lacking an indelible moment that gave people a reason to care the next morning. By the time the combine rolls around at the end of the month, the game will almost entirely have been forgotten, and it’s onto next season.

The MLB is in year two of a free agent Cold War. As pitchers and catchers report for spring training this week, baseball’s biggest stars are still looking for homes. It was peculiar a year ago when guys like JD Martinez and Yu Darvish were still unsigned as camp began, even moreso when former Cy Young winner Jake Arrieta went until the middle of March before inking a deal believed to be less than his market value.

The excuse back then? Front offices were waiting until the great free agent class of 2018-19 to make a run at the game’s biggest superstars - former MVP Bryce Harper, and star shortstop Manny Machado, with the latter not even costing team’s draft compensation if they signed him.

We’re entering mid-February, and the most noise we’ve heard about either has been via negotiations through the media.

But it’s not just Harper and Machado caught up in the free agent freeze. Closer Craig Kimbrel, former Cy Young winner Dallas Keuchel, and dozens of other players won’t be reporting to camp on time. The reasons why their future’s are stuck in limbo this late into the game vary, but what was one of the most exciting periods of the year in baseball has become back page news.

While baseball’s hot stove has cooled off, the drama in the NBA has reached a fever pitch. Clubs are building superteams in an attempt to knock the ultimate superteam - the Golden State Warriors - and the ones not competing are clearing cap space for the biggest fish in this summer’s free agency. Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, the two biggest sharks in the water, are battling their frustration in the media as rumors swirl about their plans to team up with the New York Knicks next year, all while their current teams are on a collision course for the NBA Finals.

There’s also the Lakers: the team that lives and dies by drama. It’s SHOWTIME! HOLLYWOOD! You can’t go a season in LA without drama. Insert the best player in the world and the biggest mover and shaker in sports, and you have a recipe for drama even Shakespeare couldn’t write.

First, LeBron James signs in LA, aiming to become a media and sports mogul and the NBA’s first billionaire. Then, Anthony Davis signs with Klutch Sports, the agency founded by Bron’s good friend Rich Paul. When Paul, on Davis’ behalf, relayed A.D.’s intention to leave the New Orleans Pelicans, all eyes immediately turned to the Lakers, the definitely-but-won’t-be-penalized act of collusion on Klutch Sports’ and the Lakers’ behalf, and whether or not Pelicans GM Dell Demps was really dumb enough to go through with the trade.

Turns out he wasn’t, and not only did the ensuing drama put a stain on Lakers legend Magic Johnson’s record, it may have caused a bigger rift between LeBron, coach Luke Walton and his young teammates openly involved in trade rumors.

All this and we haven’t talked about a single game yet this season.

One team is so far and away ahead of the pack that every season has become a formality to us as fans. It doesn’t matter what the other 29 teams in the league do, no one is stopping Golden State. We’ve given up hope that any team currently constructed - not MVP Harden and the Rockets, or the stacked Celtics, or Kawhi and the Raptors, or the newly-built Sixers core - has a chance of standing up against the Warriors dynasty. The games, and the season, are irrelevant.

As we get closer to March, the universe will get a little more interesting. The first Duke-Carolina game of the year is just nine days away, and in the blink of an eye we’ll be locked into Championship Week and March Madness games on television. The NFL calendar will turn. Bryce Harper and Manny Machado will sign, eventually, and day baseball will return. The drama in the Association will take a backseat to the Playoffs; whether or not the games are good or the outcome is predictable is up in the air.

But right now? Sports kinda sucks, and I’m dying for that feeling to change.
