His bad plays are when he tries to be EJ the NBA point guard. I think the best thing you can say about this kid is that with the right coaching, he could still have plays with the NBA EJ but still do many of the NFL Pro-Style plays that he'd be suited for.
Bottom line - Manuel needs more patience and that comes from good coaching. The Florida game shows where he needs improvements.
And to be blunt, you saw those improvements in the Orange & Senior Bowl. He gave us EJ the game manager instead of EJ the Gambler. That's why he's the only QB with rising stock since October.
Tiecher of the Chiefs , who has been the only journalist to follow the Chiefs for 10+ years and was also the one that said early that Romeo loved Poe - has said that the Chiefs coaches & scouts were disappointing that he didn't play.
He has some character issues.
With Geno, I see the arm. I'm not denying it. But the kid is 1 read and Out against very weak defenses.
It's very risky to try to draft a guy with the hope that his instincts and mind get faster. It's more of "un-coaching" than coaching.
Sure Geno has some nice streaks in games that look nice in highlights. But ACC still puts together solid defensive recruiting classes , especially in the secondary. The Big XII might not have a corner drafted until round 6.
