NFL Production

Metric Analysis: Brock Osweiler is pretty much too tall for the position. The shorter a quarterback is, the more compact they can be with their movements. Which is why very tall quarterbacks like Joe Flacco and Osweiler have inconsistent mechanics no matter how they much they work to improve. There is no denying that Osweiler put up a Kirk Cousins like profile as a long-term NFL starter. However, he may be one of the odd cases where he’s too tall to have consistent mechanics.

And to top it off, he’s only had one full year as a starter from college. Not a lot of success from quarterbacks with only one year of experience. Let alone quarterbacks with one year who were not dominant.  Bottom-line, the trade for Osweiler makes sense to gain more draft picks. But don’t believe it’s because Brock will be the long-term starter in Cleveland.
