Nate Sudfeld - Philadelphia Eagles

Recommended Posts

40 yd dash about to start, Suds is wearing #16. 

They're all wearing sprinters shirts/pants.

Why don't these guys run in pads so its more realistic to an actual game?

Eh, a 40 may not be that realistic anyway.  Players don't run full speed in a straight line that often.

Wow.  His combine numbers were terrible.  His stock definitely fell after this weekend.  :(

I have read a lot, that no one really expects him to get drafter in the top 1/2 of the draft.  No one is predicting him to be more than a career back-up.  Maybe we have been letting our hoosier support cloud our judgement on just how good he is. :(

I think even Hoosier fans realized Nate is a developmental NFL prospect. He played his entire college career out of the shotgun, there is going to be an adjustment period for Nate learning to take snaps under center. It is even more difficult for taller guys to stay compact in the drop back because of all the moving parts. All of this while going through reads. It is a brand new timing and decision making process, and if the footwork isn't right, there will be accuracy issues.

Where Nate is going to shine is in the team interviews: displaying his football intelligence and how genuine of a person he is. He has a big arm and a large frame he still hasn't grown into yet. He also has some excellent game film and production against top competition. A team will take him in the later rounds and he'll either be a third QB or a practice squad QB his first year. After a year in an NFL film room and workout program, anything could happen.
