I kind of agree. His release is slow as well.
He does run a 4.7 40 (at least thats what Erickson said, and it looks like its accurate).
Against Mizzou thought his accuracy was good and decision making were pretty good. So we shall see as the season goes on.
But man, that deep ball he threw to Pflugrad (60 yard bomb) was freaking PRETTY.
A nice thing about size is he can make a pass with a guy hanging on him, makes it a lot tougher for another team to have an effective pass rush. Against Mizzou, that was definately his best game (And Burfict's worst, ironically).
Edit: One more thing, Oz also has that "he is a winner" thing going for him. He is 4-0 as a starter with tough wins over Mizzou, @ Arizona last year and he did a come from behind victory against UCLA. Thats a pretty solid start to a career considering he is on a team with 3 straight losing seasons.
IMO, right now he isn't NFL-quality. But by the end of his senior year, he very well could be if hhe shortens his release and continues to work on accuracy. He is a true JR for those wondering.
