Cant teach accuracy
Not sure I agree with that. Saw Locker on NFL network from Combine yesterday, talking with Mayock about how his baseball background gave him a tendency to make a long stride as he threw and that he's trying to change that. He's been accurate on the move, so it's not a hand-eye thing, but more footwork related. He was impressive speaking candidly. I'd take him in the 2nd.
I'm glad Mayock brought this up. Actually, seeing as I like the guy and would love the 9ers to draft him in the second, I guess I'm not so glad am I.
Being a former baseball player and pitcher, I noticed the issue with his footwork (with him tending to overstride) watching his extended highlight videos on youtube.
I think your point about him being so accurate on the run (running both to his right AND to his left) meaning that it is probably more of a footwork issue are bang on.
The major question is can he rectify that through repetitions? Because if he continues to play baseball, it might be something that continues to pop up.
