Yes, speed is really low on my list of priorities for a qb. Arguably it works against him. I do recall Steve Young being way too willing to park the ball under his arm and take off. Which of course just exposes your prime asset to damage.
Comparisons to Vick are inevitable I guess. Can this guy throw?
Yes he can throw, but not terribly well. But he was just a FRESHMAN last year, he will improve.
If you want a mobile QB that is an excellent passer, you need R. Griffin III of Baylor.
He was just a couple tenths from making the US olympic team as a hurdler, and he threw 25 TDs and had about 60% completion as a freshman as well.
