Jordan Palmer: “In terms of just spinning the ball – throwing it, velocity, how efficient his spiral is, control, accuracy – he’s at the upper echelon in terms of arm talent. I work with Wilson footballs and we do a lot of stuff in the offseason where they have a chip in the ball and measure things like spiral efficiency, velocity, and spin rate, and we measure it against a lot of guys and Jarrett is basically at the top of every category. He can spin it as good as anyone I’ve been around… Last offseason he was in the quarterback room with Tom Brady and Brian Hoyer – 31 years of NFL experience, and 27 in that offense. As much information as you can possibly have in a room on how to run that offense. In terms of sitting for a year and learning, he just went to MIT.” (Full Audio Above)
Listen to former NFL player and quarterback guru Jordan Palmer explain to Colin Cowherd why he thinks New England Patriots quarterback Jarrett Stidham has one of the best arms in the NFL, as Palmer believes the Patriots have a real stud on their hands if they continue down their current path and avoid signing a big-name veteran the likes of Cam Newton, Jameis Winston, and Andy Dalton.
Check out the audio above as Palmer details why Stidham would have been a very high draft pick if you would have just switched his sophomore and junior seasons, and explains to Colin why he’s more than fully prepared to run the Patriots offense under Bill Belichick and Josh McDaniels.
