Darnold may not be the same elite prospect that Andrew Luck and Carson Wentz were, but it is quite possible the Jets may have stopped one of the league's longest revolving doors at the quarterback position. His anticipation and creativity are well ahead of most of today's college quarterbacks and he looks every bit the part of an elite prospect when he knows he has time to throw or is on the move. He also consistently makes something out of nothing. On the downside, there are far too many examples of him forcing the action and using poor mechanics, although the fact those instances didn't appear nearly as often on his freshman film suggests he felt the need to carry the offense from time to time because of some poor line play and the loss of playmakers such as JuJu Smith-Schuster. Darnold will have the luxury of learning at his pace if he needs a bit of time - which may not be such a bad idea considering he has roughly 1 1/2 years of starting experience and is entering the NFL following his redshirt sophomore season - but he's a near-lock to start the second half of the season once it is clear he has moved past Josh McCown. His dynasty value will be determined as more quarterbacks come off the board, but he's going to be worth investing in. As of now, he should be expected to produce at a low-end QB2 level whenever he is named the starter.

Darnold fumbled his first snap in practice today. He then went on to fumble a couple more times.

There is a good chance he will be the best QB ever drafted in the history of football. Go Jets

Ross Tucker who centered for Brady for 1 year said that Brady practiced the center exchange constantly. Tucker said he was actually nervous (because it was Brady) about getting it perfect and that Brady made this a really important part of his routine. You can't expect a guy on his first day with a new center to be perfect. Otherwise if it was that easy, why would Brady even care.

I think Darnold has everything he needs to be great as long as he gets coached well.

I think these are valid comments.

 

the exchange from Center is likely going to take a little bit of time to get right.

 

Eventually, they will work like a finely oiled machine.  but for now, it will be a little rough until they have had some time to play together.
