Mildly Interesting Notes on Jeff Driskel at OTAs…

Athletically, Jeff Driskel is in the same realm as Blaine Gabbert and Colin Kaepernick…but not quite as good. Driskel is the fastest straight-line runner (4.56), which is stellar for a 6’4″/234 QB, but his 7.19 three-cone is ‘good’, but not like Gabbert (6.84) and Kaepernick (6.85).

If Kaepernick bites the dust or gets traded, then Driskel could be a Gabbert injury away from suddenly starting. He may not be ready as a passer, but I would suspect that means he’ll become a runner to compensate…a 4.56 runner. Just something to keep in mind for late-late round Dynasty Rookie Drafts.

2014 Undrafted Free Agent (UDFA) Commentary: San Francisco 49ers

Twitter @CFBMetrics The 49ers did not add a large pool of UDFAs (because they had 49 draft picks this year, but only 12 of them are not a ‘redshirt’), but what they did add was solid-smart. Southern Illinois QB Kory Faulkner is a pretty talented QB. He’s not going to make the team due to […].. Continue reading→
