NFL Network’s Mike Mayock joined the show to talk about the upcoming Draft and more.
Mayock weighed in on Oregon QB Marcus Mariota and said there are concerns because he played in the spread and we haven’t seen him try to do some of the things QBs do in the NFL. He did say he checks all the boxes for athleticism and character.
“Everybody wants to love the kid,” Mayock said. “Gut they’re scared to death of the spread quarterbacks who can’t handle [the transition to the NFL].”
Mayock said it’s a very weak quarterback class — the depth is poor. The top two guys are flawed and no one knows who the third guy is.
