Today former New York Giants quarterback Phil Simms appeared on Sirius XM/Mad Dog Sports Radio’s “Schein on Sports” and talked at length with Adam Schein (also of CBS!) about the quarterbacks in this class, and he is definitely leaning towards Jameis Winston, as his favorite QB.
The former Giants great thinks concerns with Winston’s touchdown-to-interception ratio is overblown and called the Florida State product “the best thrower in the draft.”
“Just plain and simple this: he is the best thrower in the draft and it’s easy for him. He showed it at the combine, he looked like he was truly just out in the back yard, let me just drop back and throw it, put the ball on the money, make it look easy, beautiful smooth motion with nobody around him,” Simms said. “Those are things you saw during the season and he showed it there. He looked the best dropping back too. He’s going to be a pretty good play-action quarterback. He moves well enough to do bootlegs and all that.”
“It’s a bad group and that’s a kind way of saying it. It just really is. Overall, just doing the whole group together, there’s really not a lot to get excited about,” Simms said. “There’s no depth to it. Last year you had some late-round picks who could really throw the ball. There’s no such thing this year.”
