How good can Cole Stoudt be?

Posted: Apr 17, 2014 10:07 AM

"He reads the whole field, instead of having one guy to go to like on a jump ball," Leggett said. "He scans the defense, and he's opened up his whole view when he goes through his progressions."

From Williams: "He looks through all his options now. He doesn't just go for the first option; he scans the field a lot now."

Cole can calmly scan the field and make quick decisions in part because he's tall enough to have confidence that he's seeing all of the defense. That should improve our passing efficiency. The question will be, what can he do when the pocket breaks down or the receivers are covered. A big key to our offensive consistency was Boyd's ability to make a play in those situations. Boyd, at around 225 pounds, was able to use his size and toughness to keep the chains moving. How will Cole make plays in those situations? Does he have the durability to take some shots and get back up? I read recently where he was up to 230lbs. That's generous, but if he can get to that weight or close, he could have a great year.



Not to gush too much about his ability...

But I think, at the end of the day, he could be the most talented pure passer we've had in a few decades. Better than Charlie-- less of a gunslinger and more polished. I am very high on this kid, I think he's special and I think he gets drafted.

Agree. Charlie didn't have good feet to avoid pressure

The ONLY advantages Boyd had over Cole was his size/strength to make tough yards on the ground, and that cannon for an arm.

Cole does everything better IMO. He is more of what I think a "pure QB" should be than Boyd, but just couldn't make those throws that Boyd could make.

My preference has always been Cole, but Boyd was just too dang good on those critical throws.

Personally, I am excited to see Cole get a shot to let us see his skills.

Different team now.

Boyd didn't have the blocking Cole has. Boyd had excellent WRs but not nearly the diversity at RB position.

This year will be at least as good as last and that's nothing to be ashamed of.

Boyd had a more experienced OL

We're more talented on the line this year, but we aren't more experienced (At least at the beginning of the year).

Can't really make excuses for Boyd. He was great, but he didn't have an elite pocket presence. It's too early to tell if Stoudt will, but early indications are that he knows how to actually use the pocket.

Leggett took a cheap shot a Winston. Really, he's right. Half FSU's offense was those 6'5" WR's who could jump like frogs. Winston just had to throw it straight up to get a completion.

to be realistic, coaches felt Tajh was the better QB last year or Cole would have started. but Cole has developed another year. but so did Procter following Charlie W. but also remember Tennessee won the BCS the year after Peyton w/ Tee Martin.

so the answer is we don't know. could be good. could be bad.

Don't be dropping a Proctor in the same sentence as Stoudt

Posted: Apr 17, 2014 10:55 AM

Proctor wishes he could pass like Stoudt, and that's not being petty. Completely different types of QB. Proctor was a ball dispenser at best.

About as good as the O-line lets him be.

If he gets good protection, he will have a great year. I'm not sure how he will respond if he is constantly under pressure.

Hope he pulls a "Tee Martin"

Understood much of Cole's time has been what so may call "Mop-up" time. That's the same for all back up QBs. What folks should realize is that for every rep Qbs get in a game, they get hundreds of reps in practice. That is where Cole has impressed coaches and teammates. Everyday Cole throws against a better defense than Clemson faced all last season except maybe FSU. This years defense is supposed to be even better. And for his so called lack of mobility, or escapability, many call this years defensive line the best in the country. So with all these opinions, consider the everyday opponent he gets his work against. Good luck Cole.

I think Cole runs better than most of y'all think. As far as passing.......so far he hasn't made a lot of mistakes.

Overall he is going to surprise #### out of a lot of people....just not me. I think he will be fantastic.
