NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock was asked what quarterbacks in this year’s draft pool fit the West Coast system the best. Knowing Buffalo offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett’s offense is rooted in a lot of West Coast principles, it’s an answer I thought would be worth passing along.
“I think Matt Barkley makes a lot of sense,” said Mayock. “He’s a guy as a junior at USC looked so much different than he did this year. I think to be fair to him you have to go back and watch junior tape.
“So I think Barkley fits. I think Ryan Nassib fits. I think Landry Jones and Tyler Wilson both can fit. So of those, that group of guys of the top seven, eight quarterbacks, I think those are the guys that did it most efficiently.”
Seeing Nassib mentioned is no surprise knowing he ran a version of the West Coast under Hackett at Syracuse.
