Default Deshone Kizer: I have the potential to be greatest QB ever

Says he is a combination of Tom Brady's mind and Cam Newton's body.

I think he's channeling his inner Lavar Ball.

Deshaun Waton has all that too, plus Ross the Interns throwing arm.

I'd rather have a QB who has too much belief in himself than not enough. He has tremendous upside for sure.

Default Re: Deshone Kizer: I have the potential to be greatest QB ever

Completing 57% of his passes with a 5:2 TD:int ratio on a team going 4-8.

Tom Brady completed 62% with about a 3:1 TD:int his last year. Brady also had consistent improvement every year in college. Kizer's numbers and QB ranking were better the season before last.

He may end up a great QB, and I like the confidence, but comparing yourself to NFL greats before you take a snap should be kept in your own head or with your camp. Not during an interview.

Sounds like his agent's been feeding him a lot of love since he's signed.

Watson is more RG III body than Newton. Also never asked to do anything mentally close to what they do in pro style schemes.

He went 10-2 and led his team back for wins many times his first year starting. If he had Watson's D, you wouldn't be saying that at all.


Kizer shouldn't have said all this stuff, it sounds bad. Also the article is poorly written, seeing as Kelly didn't say Kizer should return to college. He actually said it was the right decision to leave, but that he could be back at ND and like any college kid, would benefit from more fundamental work.

Kizer will have a better career than Watson.

Yes. It's one thing to be confident in your abilities, and even to say you think can succeed in the NFL. No team wants to invest in a guy who thinks he'll be a failure. It's quite another to compare yourself to arguably the greatest QB ever.

If you notice, Brady doesn't engage in discussions about his greatness.

The kid will learn, but he's kind of put a target on his back for opposing defenses. Maybe he can back it up. We'll see. Manziel was brash but couldn't back it up and that did not turn out well for him.

Here is my question. Should NFL teams look at him differently after these comments?

Will probably be met mostly with just eye rolls.

Combine results will do the talking.

WAAYYYY too early to say that. A lot depends on who they get drafted by. Also who is coaching them. Supporting cast, etc.

Not garnet glasses, basing it on system requirements on the QBs. Clemson's system doesn't ask much of the QB just like Baylor. He won't throw bubble screens 50% of the time like college. I just see Watson and Tribusky being lackluster in the pros.
