    I can only assume the van was down by the river.

    Well...I recall the same article saying something about him and his wife buying land by the river...or maybe it was a lake. Either way...it's close enough.

    North wants Benkert

    I want the Broncos to sign Jeremiah Briscoe as a UDFA, he will be 2018's Kyle Sloter!

    Interesting read about Mayfield and more detailed reasons QBs from the Big 12 (oklahoma) dont make it in the NFL.


    How does Baker Mayfield compare to Russell Wilson?*@RobertKlemko*spent three hours watching Mayfield film with long-time Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell to find out*https://t.co/6gnFFgAHcLpic.twitter.com/ohn3Gmxzcv

    — The MMQB (@theMMQB)*February 23, 2018


    It’s an easy comparison to make: Both Wilson and Mayfield are undersized for the position, stout and durable, and both extend plays with their feet while keeping their eyes up. But the traits and experiences that make Wilson a franchise quarterback and Mayfield one of the most prolific passers in college football history go deeper than that.

    The differences become apparent to Bevell within the first hour of Mayfield’s film cutup. We’re watching the Ohio State game (the one when Mayfield planted the OU flag at midfield) in full, then a handful of scenarios including third down throws against pressure, and red-zone passing against four of the best defenses Oklahoma faced this season (Iowa State, TCU, Ohio State and Georgia).

    During Wilson’s final season at Wisconsin, in 2011, then-Badgers offensive coordinator Paul Chryst was running what could generally be described as a pro-style offense. There were traditional progression reads, with Wilson spending time under center and running some of the bootleg passing plays he would eventually master in the NFL. In the three hours of Oklahoma film we watched on Wednesday, Mayfield got under center just once, from inside his own 5-yard line, to throw a play-action pass to the fullback, a position that gets about as many reps in Lincoln Riley’s offense as the pair of white ponies who pull the Sooner Schooner across the home field after Oklahoma scores.

    But that’s not uncommon. Very few quarterbacks coming out of major college football today have experience under center. Still, Oklahoma’s Air Raid offense carries a stigma that others don’t. Specifically, very few of its graduates have had success in the NFL (think of the string of Texas Tech quarterbacks who led the conference in passing yards and fizzled out as pros).

    “The history of some of those guys hasn’t been real positive,” Bevell says. “There are more guys that haven’t played well than have. Spread out, dink and dunk stuff. I don’t know how they would describe it, because I haven’t talked to these coaches about it, but the NFL guys would say the quarterbacks don’t have to do very much.

    “There’s more to do in the NFL, whether it’s making reads, progressions, making Mike linebacker declarations, changing protection, those kinds of things. Maybe they would tell you they’re doing that. But when you stand there, look over to the sideline to get a call, and then run the play, you’re not doing it. That doesn’t mean they’re not capable, but there’s a learning curve.”

    Much of the Oklahoma offense doesn’t necessarily translate to the NFL, including a heavy reliance on smoke throws to wide receivers as soon as the ball is snapped, shallow crosses and elaborate screens with linemen and receivers blocking downfield earlier than NFL rules allow. A staple of the Oklahoma offense is a play-action pop pass from a two-back shotgun set that requires Mayfield simply fake a handoff and drop the ball over the head of the approaching linebacker and into tight end Mark Andrews’ waiting mitts.

    “Few teams run that,” Bevell says of the NFL. “For one thing, defenses are better in the NFL and can handle this. With the play-action, you want to build stuff off of things you actually run, so it looks the same. Oklahoma runs some of these handoffs, but few [NFL] te
    ams have this in their scheme.”

    the NFL doesn't run shallow crosses and smoke routes?

    Did, did you read that?

    Did, did you read that? That is not chazoe making the comment, that is a professional Offensive Coordinator with a SB ring making the comment.

    A few of us have been pointing out that Big 12 QBs have had a long history of not making it in the NFL. Unless the Broncos are willing to run that offense that Oklahoma runs and that may depend on rule changes the NFL may need to make, then it may be a long time before we see a QB from that school match the hype he gets coming into the NFL.
