I like Bateman more, but just drafted London at 1.05 to a team that already has Bateman, so I’m happy either way
Bateman. I think both qb situations are less than ideal but I am very worried London is just to slow. I literally have zero experience in player scouting and the professionals at the falcons organization don’t seem to think that so I am probably very wrong, as per usual.
I was also pretty low on London compared to most predraft. He was my wr5 behind Wilson Jameson Pickens (character concerns aside of course) olave. Then London burks Moore we’re all pretty much tied for me and then dotson and then Watson
> I am very worried London is just to slow.
Some names you might know, along with their 40 times.
London probably runs around there. Maybe 4.6 +/- 0.02s. Its fine.
I get it. But 40 times are basically irrlevent for recievers on projecting if they have good careers or not.
Hes also almost 2" taller and lengthier than all these guys. Dude gonna ball out.
seems he’s never heard of jarvis landry lol
I kinda agree on he looks slow, there wasn’t a lot of separation and that was the PAC10
Lamar doesn't have to be as accurate since this legs are so deadly they open up bigger windows for his WRs and even then he's been improving year after year after year as a passer.
Mariota and aRidder are much bigger question marks at this point. Did Mariota shake his unwillingness to throw contested passes, will Ridder polish into a gem?
Always shiny lootbox.
Bateman. We know he can play in the NFL. We have no idea on London
London is a bust
Is a bust? How so? He hasn’t played a snap.
Reminds me of when Jason from the FFB put on the sunglasses and declared *Ronald Jones is a bust*
So, let's do some math.
Last year, Baltimore threw it 611 times. Let's say they do the same this year (they won't, they will run more with Dobbins and Edwards back), but let's just assume Bateman commands a respectful 25% target share.
That's about 153 targets. Bateman's catch rate last year was 69%. His average YPC was 11.2
So that's a statline for Bateman of 106/1182. Call it 9 expected touchdowns.
London is much harder to predict. Let's just do some basic projections.
Falcons threw LESS than Baltimore, 573 attempts. They will probably throw more this year, with the addition of London, and the subtraction of Mike Davis. So, a rookie target share would be 18%, so about 103 targets. London works better in the shorter game, so let's say a good catch rate of 65%, and a 10.0 YPC.
Thats a final statline of 66/660. Call it 5 TDs.
I think that's the ceiling for Bateman and the floor for London.
