NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock is admittedly having a hard time really liking any of the quarterbacks in this year’s draft class, and it’s because of one quality that he believes is lacking in all of them, consistency.
Mayock was asked about Oklahoma QB Landry Jones, and his answer morphed into a commentary on the QB class as a whole.
“Like a lot of the quarterbacks this year, he’s so difficult to qualify,” said Mayock of Jones. “I can look at certain games and go, ‘That’s a first round draft pick.’ I can look at other games and go, ‘He’s a fifth round guy.’
“I’m struggling with him. I like his junior tape better than his senior tape. I think he can make most of the throws. I think ‑‑ I know he can make all the throws. I’ve seen him make all the throws, but like a lot of this year’s quarterbacks, there is no consistency with this kid. Same thing with Geno Smith. Same thing with Matt Barkley.”
That’s why Mayock, though he has Smith and Barkley as his top two QBs, doesn’t have any quarterback ranked higher than 20 overall.
