PFW pans Joe Flacco

Posted Apr 21, 2008

A lot of reporters and fans have fallen in love with Delaware QB Joe Flacco, without ever seeing him play. PFW Draft Analyst Nolan Nawrocki doesn't share the love -

"He has faced marginal competition," wrote Nawrocki in his annual draft guide. "Too often he locks on receivers and waits for them to uncover before throwing. Is not a confident quick-triggered decision-maker. Has average anticipation. Is stationary in the pocket and shows little athleticism to move his feet and avoid the rush. He can be flustered by pressure and late to feel it. Has marginal accuracy on the move. To often closes his front foot when he steps into his throws and his ball placement is erratic. Could need some adjustment time to taking snaps under center. Not overly confident."

Only time will tell if Nawrocki's criticisms are correct.p>
