I've shown in the past, when Jake Fromm goes up against the same defenses that the other top college QB's have, he outperforms on average every single one of them.
Something that I did not share, at that time, is that he truly shines when he is under pressure, posting a remarkable 99.6 QB
Rating when being pressured.
Now how about Dwayne Haskins?
I know many of you love Haskins, and I would agree with you that he has a good arm. I also do think he may "become" a good QB in time, especially at the NFL level.
However a word of caution I feel is in order...
Here are his numbers, about his offensive line keeping him clean in the pocket, after 6 games.
""Haskins has been kept clean from pressure on 79.7%
of his drop back attempts Ė the most in the Big Ten.""
""He sees a significant drop in passer rating from that 147.2 mark all the way down to 46.9
when pressured, seeing the biggest drop off in passer rating from a clean pocket to under pressure.""
So what the article is saying, is through 6 games he had the cleanest pocket in the big ten.
And a drop off of over 100 points when being pressured is massive. This is the biggest jump of any Big Ten quarterback.
Once again, I'm not for or against Haskins, but my question to those who are, do these numbers concern you at all?
And secondly, why would you not wait another year and take a clearly superior QB in Fromm who thrives under pressure, and has some mobility as well?
Hopefully these numbers should help to bring some balance to the force, when your looking for your next Franchise QB... Fromm under pressure
