  • Kyle Lauletta

    Unpopular Opinion: I'm actually really high on Kyle Lauletta, QB from Richmond. Quick release and has a Drew Brees esk feel to him when you watch his tape. Can easily be had in the 4th or 5th rd this yr and I'm fine with another QB comp since we don't even know what Chad Kelly is capable of at the next level. I'll sign Keenum/McCarron all day if our O-line is improved the next!

    Names like Rosen, Allen, Darnold, and Mayfield are all around our discussions and I'm not sold* on any of them. I don't look at any of these supposed top 4 QBs and see someone that turns our O around in 3-5 years. No one "looks bad" in their highlight videos because they're just that, highlights. But what you can see are under thrown passes, plays where DBs just blow coverage, or missed tackles...In my humble opinion, Mayfield is the best possibility for the simple fact that:
    Rosen - bad decision making and timing with WRs + takes too long to release. Tape has under thrown passes and WRs making plays for bad passes.
    Allen - strong arm, sure, but watch his tape and you can count how many times he actually threw from the pocket, so terrible timing and relied on his arm to get him out of trouble.
    Darnold - decision making and turnover issues are HUGE. 13 ints and 12 fumbles last yr (lost 9.) So if he wasn't even a rockstar through college, is he magically supposed to fix his turnover issues in the NFL??
    Mayfield - worked through a spread O and never under center which for some reason makes people think these types of QBs go dumb under center. Over the other 3, he can at least extend plays with his feet and IMO, he's a better leader than the rest.

    If Cousins isn't signed, draft Nelson at #5, sign Solder (crosses fingers,) Isaiah Oliver in the 2nd if he's there (or package back to get him,) and draft Lauletta in the 3rd/4th rd. Honestly, if our o-line is taken care of, I have no issue signing McCarron or Keenum. No matter whose under center next season though, if our o-line doesn't improve in a big way, they're going to struggle, Cousins included....

    Rumor is, the Pats are super high on him... sounds like they are looking to grab him in the 2nd.

      ok good, so im not crazy in thinking this kids got big potential haha. But I don't see the Pats 'reaching' that high for a QB, they're typically a little more methodical in their QB approach, but of course Tom's reign isn't far from over and they need to nurse someone behind him for a season or 2. Regardless, I like him and if necessary, would trade back into the 2nd to grab him before the Pats did...

        nfldraftscout has him projected as round 3 right now. I think he potential. he is pretty athletic and outperformed all the other QBs in the combine events. He seems to be pretty good with accuracy and played well in the senior bowl.

          Like i said id be down if they selected d or someone else in the first and drafted him in 2nd or 3rd. Pats arent only ones high on him either if i remember correctly.

                Lauletta has a similar profile to that of Chase Daniel. We followed him some as we live in Virginia. He’s a competitor and has several strengths - compact release, accurate up to intermediate passes, athletic and played some under center. On the negatives he has to work hard to generate velocity for some passes and tends to over throw some deep passes. He played against limited competition.

                He could be a value as a 3rd or 4th round pick. Maybe he ends up as a solid backup on a team. In the right situation maybe he could do pretty well. Again he reminds me a lot of Chase Daniel.

                  I doubt anything the Pats actually feel was somehow leaked...
