What Greg Cosell has to say about some of the top NFL Draft QB prospects

NCAA Football: Rose Bowl-Oklahoma vs Georgia Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Greg Cosell is one of my favorite NFL film breakdown analysts. While I don’t always agree with what he has to say, I do always respect his work and consider his viewpoints valid. In the last few days, Cosell has released some of his NFL Draft scouting reports on top quarterback propsects. To this point, I have seen his thoughts on Josh Rosen, Baker Mayfield, Josh Allen, and Lamar Jackson. I haven’t seen one for Sam Darnold yet.

I wanted to share them because these are the types of scouting reports I enjoy. First of all if you ever read a scouting report done by a professional, it likely fills you with humility. The details and things they look for are incredible. They go far beyond what people generally look for.

Beyond that, these scouting reports go beyond, “This guy is great...This guy stinks.” Instead they discuss the strengths and weaknesses of each player. Each prospect is going to have to improve certain aspects of his game at the next level. Rather than dismiss prospects as a result of them, these reports instead explore what those are and lay out the path for each quarterback.
