    I love Mac but he was not a great passer and with Walter and Suhey in the backfield thank God he didn't have to be. He did know how to win though and so does Lynch but the NFL was a running league then and now it's a passing league. I just don't think he has the arm for it but that's only an opinion based on the vids I watched. And you really can't compare him to Russell Wilson either because Wilson does have a gun.

    All this discussion about a project QB motivated some research. Here is what I came up with. A Div II QB from West Texas A&M. Dustin Vaughn - 6'5" 235. Not the fastest guy (4.95 40). But really solid passing stats (338 completions/525 attempts/4148 yds/38 TD/6 int).

    A couple of review sites ...

    I watched a couple of youtube videos on this guy. Maybe I am drinking the Kool-Aid but he may have an incredible ceiling.

    Imagine a slow kick off return guy ... so slow that covering teams run right past him.

    He just mosey's into the end zone. It could happen.

    Dustin Vaughan; brother of Ricky "Wild Thing" Vaughan former MLB pitcher with the Cleveland Indians and San Quentin of the California Penal League. Doesn't have his older brothers arm but doesn't have his lengthy prison record either. Eyesight is 20/15 so he doesn't have to wear those God awful black rim specs Ricky did. Smart but not very mobile and has the unfortunate luck to have played for the same college that J'Marcus Webb did. Do we want to go back down THAT road again. LOL

    Seriously though he might be able to push Jerrod Johnson out of his chair at #3 but he'd need a lot of work to climb any higher. His lack of mobility concerns me too. Guys like him who dominated as small schools are always interesting but this kid couldn't even seem to do it there. He may require and architect to do a makeover before the construction ever begins.

    Overview
    2013: Started all 14 games. Threw for single-season school records of 5,401 yards and 53 touchdown, breaking Keith Null's records from 2008. Led Division II in passing yards and touchdowns. 2012: Started all 15 games. School reached the NCAA Division II semifinal for first time in school history.

Misc: Is West Texas A&M's all-time leader in completions (1,040), attempts (1,624), passing yards (10.525) and touchdowns (123).

    Analysis
    Strengths
    Outstanding size. Good short-to-intermediate accuracy when he has time to set his feet and step into throws. Very intelligent. Superb leadership qualities and intangibles. Highly respected, vocal team leader. Very competitive. Urgent, demanding, on-field presence. Outstanding production. Tough and durable.

    Weaknesses
    Has small hands. Most balls are flat with little arc and not easily catchable. Plays in a spread-pistol offense operating exclusively out of the gun and featuring a lot of simple, one-look reads. Very average mobility to escape the rush and create plays in the pocket with his feet. Will force the ball under duress and needs to hone his decision-making. Is late to trigger and takes unnecessary sacks. Has not faced top competition and windows will tighten in the pros.

    Bottom Line
    A developmental, dink-and-dunk pocket passer with intriguing intangibles and leadership qualities sought for a supportive backup or No. 3 role. Will require time to acclimate to the speed of the NFL game.

    His size bothers me less than his arm.

    As a QB yeah, I can see where it would but he's not 5'10" and 185lbs so at 217lbs and 6' I don't know where anyone would call him small.

    What I saw in his videos were throws that aren't tight spirals and wobble as they drop in. Those can be tough catches. He doesn't drill the ball in with speed. I think he's far more of a read option and rollout passer with happy feet than a pocket passer. But what I also saw was a kid with some very real natural running skills with vision and quick reactions. If he's gonna make it I still think it will be by carrying the ball not passing it.

    Yeah these stats are pretty pedestrian for a QB that won a SuperBowl it was all the defense. Or maybe the other team was playing good defense too. :3 8 14[1]:

    Is that what they talk about when being a team player? Doing your job to the fullest without no realizing how good you really are while you win.
