A. All of those guys had pro-days with no nfl scheduling conflicts. Thus more media coverage. Media coverage = buzz.
B. Ya well you're basing Andy Daltons intelligence off of something he did in a 2 minute clip with Mooch. So what you think is holding ZERO weight.
While I understand your passion for the player, the reality is that there does not appear to be much interest in Stanzi as a high draftee. He appears to be a guy warranting mid-round interest. Now, that doesn't determine his future in the NFL. It just means at this stage of his career, he is a guy that isn't warranting much attention. I wouldn't take it personally, since the best two RB's on my board are rarely discussed as well.
Josh Freeman was rarely discussed until the week of the draft. He went in the 1st round.
McCoy and Clausen were discussed to no end. The fell to the 3rd and 2nd round respectively.
Just because the mass media doesn't discuss Stanzi, does not in ANY way mean that teams, NFL teams, aren't interested. Highly.
Perhaps the reason Stanzi isn't discussed as much, is because he has nothing that works against him? Think about it. All the mass media hyped qb's all have an issue that warrant discussing. For example:
Newton: 1yr wonder, headcase?, crazy athletic.
Gabbert: Spread qb, only qb to not workout at combine, poor mid to deep/3rd down accuracy.
Mallett: Slow, off field concerns.
Dalton: Ginger, soul-less, spread offense
Kaepernick: Not highly recruited, too long of a release, pistol offense
Locker: Terrible accuracy and sr. yr
So see, all of those guys have stuff that keeps them in the news. Stanzi? What's his biggest issue? Consistency? That's not as fun to talk about/ story worthy as what the other qb's offer. Especially when you have a Sr. year that has a 25:6 TD to INT ratio and an 8.71 YPA and 64% comp. The consistency argument doesn't hold much weight. Negative things make the news. Stories with no drama are dull. That's just a fact with American journalism.
