I am a big Dolphins fans a Doughty has struggled a lot in camp the last two years. He is ok in a bunch of categories but his arm strength cause a lot of ball to arrive late and be picked off.
I am a fan of his because he went to high school 2 miles form where I grew up but he isn't cut to be an NFL QB.
.
Being an NFL QB is often being at the right place at the right time unless you are just super talented. Brandon is a terrific young man and was a fantastic college QB but I thought her would already be at least a backup. I just wonder why the Dolphins are hanging on to him and just don't waive him so he can at least have a shot with another team. I think he has a shot but has to be the ideal set up for his skill set. A lot of good college QB's never made a splash in the NFL, Graham Harrell comes to mind.

Rakeem Cato also comes to mind. Smart QB with great leadership skills. If he would have been just a little bit taller and gained a few more pounds, he would be in the NFL still today.

Doughty has struggled in camp according to local beat writers. I don't think he will make the PS this year. He will definitely not make the 53. Someone may pick him up, but he only looks like another camp arm to keep guys fresh. Probably out of the NFL after next year.

Jay Cutler is a moderately above average quarterback of his era *at best*.

Graham Harrell? Wow...

Not Tebow? Or Wuerffell? Or Manziel? Or Leaf? Et al?

Graham Harrell belongs on a list with other Mike Leach QBs along with Jeff Tedford QBs and June Jones Hawaii QBs...

Doughty is a super guy. More than likely a super teammate as well. His arm strength will probably keep him from ever making it on the field. Will succeed at whatever he does (if it's not football).

That's too bad. I thought the arm strength was just enough. He could make all the throws on the field but there is such a fine line in the NFL because the DBs are all super quick.

Yep. The db's in the league are a little better than CUSA or the SunBelt. He was a great college qb, though. Nothing wrong with that.

Jeff Driskel is killing it in Cincinnati. Take a look at Driskel's run in this video:

Quote:Driskel went eight for nine with 97 yards, one touchdown, and had a passer rating of 148.6 He also led the team in rushing yards with 34, and his rushing touchdown was the spark that ignited the Bengals offense.

I commented on this after seeing him in Ruston, the arm strength is just not there. That is something that is really hard to develop. He is a small frame guy but even will added strength and muscle, NFL arm strength and mechanics is hard to develop.

He was a good college system QB

Driskel is better than McCarron, it will be interesting to see if the Bengals trade McCarron.
