Middlekauff on what Jimmy Garoppolo brings to the table for the 49ers

Nov 3, 2017 at 10:57 AM--


Former NFL scout, Bay Area radio host, and contributor to NBC Sports Bay Area and The Athletic, John Middlekauff, offered up his analysis of new San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on Friday.

The plays within the analysis all come from Garoppolo's two career starts. Due to the four-game suspension of quarterback Tom Brady, Garoppolo started two games for the New England Patriots to kick off the 2016 season. He completed 24 of 33 passes for 264 yards and a touchdown in New England's 23-21 Week 1 victory over the Arizona Cardinals.

Garoppolo was supposed to start all four games but was sidelined with a sprained AC joint during the second quarter of the Week 2 contest against the Miami Dolphins. Garoppolo had three first-half touchdowns before leaving the game.

Within the analysis, Middlekauff notes Garoppolo's ability to quickly go through progressions, arm strength, pocket awareness, athleticism, accuracy while on the move, and more. You can watch the analysis below or here on Twitter.

If he can clean up his decision-making and his accuracy, the kind of things that Kyle would be able to do to scheme people open with the use of the play-action pass ... he will be the best dual-threat quarterback in the NFL." What about the quarterback that Lance will be replacing this season—Jimmy Garoppolo? Last week,

Earlier this week, CBS Sports compiled a list of every NFL team's most questionable offseason move, and pointed to the Jimmy Garoppolo saga for the San Francisco 49ers, which still remains unanswered as mandatory minicamp has concluded. While there were several potential choices, such as San Francisco's contract negotiations with Deebo Samuel that ultimately resulted in a trade request by the fourth-year receiver, CBS Sports's Jordan Dajani believed that the outcome of the Garoppolo situation was the most questionable move. "We could discuss something related to Deebo Samuel here, but it seems

After being subject to a number of trade rumors this offseason, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo remains a member of the organization, although the franchise has made it clear that they've attempted to move on from the veteran signal-caller. One of the reasons that San Francisco could be looking to move on is due to Garoppolo's inability to consistently complete deep passes, which has hindered the 49ers on several occasions, most notably during the 49ers' Super Bowl loss to the Kansas City Chiefs during the 2019 NFL season. Earlier this week, PFF ranked the 2021 starting quarterbacks' deep passing by various
