    Yep, and if it's easily fixed then they would do it in college. If it isn't easily fixed they just disguise it.

    In college football you can get by excelling in certain areas. This also serves to hide your weaknesses in others. Remember when idiot wannabe scouts were saying Colt Brennan could be a first-round pick back in December?

    They didn't work on his release at Kentucky after they changed his mechanics the first time where he made drastic improvements.

If you get hurt you will not succeed.
    John Beck got sacked a lot last year and he had a lightening quick release.

    Plus, we are talking about a 0.1 seconds of a difference, this is a mountain out of a molehill.

    The release is so overrated.
    Obviously, cause why else would he not be taken in round 1. Homer.

    you are right, his release isnt like Byrons. Byron's looks lightning quick compared to Dre. ooohhh canada!

    Release is overrated, but it is still a problem. That doesn't mean it can't be fixed, but it still is a problem.

    lol lacks physical skills? Have you ever seen his arm?

    Woodson was one of the best decision maker in all of college football last year. He simply doesn't take big risks throwing the ball as often as others do.

    325...tha'ts a fact.
    Dilfer had what like 225 or something? That's my point. Not like it means much, the best decision maker in college football is all of a sudden throwing picks to 4th and 5th round picks against the scout team defense.
