Burrow vs. Haskins

Post by Omega » Mon Apr 17, 2017 6:56 am

One of the interesting story lines from the just completed TOSU spring football practice. I am sure most SEOP'ers are pulling from the young man from Athens, but whomever becomes the heir apparent to JT Barrett will give the Bucks great QB play in 2018 and 2019.

Both young QBs looked good are to call a winner there.

Barrett didn't play too much.

Barrett seemed to still hold the ball forever in the pocket (even with no pressure or contact allowed). He is great with his legs, but folks I dont see him being a great passer this year.

I expected Burrow to really shine through as the backup. Although he looked great, Haskins looked unreal too. They both made some throws that I havent seen Barrett be able to do since he was a freshman.

I think these 2 are neck and neck for the backup spot and Haskins might actually be a little better once he learns more of the offense. He is a better runner than Burrow.

The good thing is OSU is LOADED at the QB position.

I would like to see more of Martell, his size is worrisome, but does he ever have quick feet! The way he jukes and cuts kind of reminds me of Braxton, and that option pitch he threw was pretty magical. Curious to see how his passing game is, you would think his size would be a drawback finding receivers, but in high school he had great numbers against top notch competition.

Martell might be one of those guys with tons of potential that never plays a snap for OSU.

His size might lead him to transferring to a place like Youngstown St in a year or two

Pulling for Burrow, but Haskins can also pass, and he is amazingly quick on his feet. Hard decision to make imo.

I don't really understand how this is close.. after being at the spring game and watching warmups and the game I don't see why people think these 2 are close at quarterback... if you want a guy who mimicked your starter you want haskins.. but he is going to be just like your starter against good defenses he will struggle.... Martel at least right now doesn't have the arm to be a college quarterback after about 20 yards his passes wobble 2 much.. Haskins is a physical specimen and a great athlete but not a great quarterback

Really? From what I saw, Haskins was throwing darts and putting touch on the ball downfield.

I think the back up job (and possible starter) is very close between Haskins and Burrow. I for one would love to see the local kid behind center but looking at them both objectively, Haskins is right there and he has tons of potential.

I dont know it seemed to me a lot of his passes were high and out of reach of receivers he did get better as game went on and he did throw a ton more passes then the other 2 quarterbacks. Don't get me wrong. Burrow had the advantage of a lot of blown defensive coverage that aloud several passes to be caught because most of his deep balls were under thrown. Like i said i saw game live i have watched no TV of it so i am going off memory. But i dont remember haskins completing a thrown ball over 15 yards until late in second half he had a lot of plays over 20 yards do to yards after catch. Like i said i could be wrong. just going off my memory. It probably also doesn't help. that accept during first quarter all haskins long passes were at other end of the stadium then from where i was at so maybe i did not have best view. But when they warmed up right in front of me. I thought Burrow through the most catch-able ball. i thought they both looked better then Barrett. I just thought Haskins looked like a bigger maybe even more athletic Barrett. But that is my opinion as i know very little about Ohio State football. Me and my wife went wrong somewhere throughout raising our daughter despite my best efforts she is a buckeye fan. They are better then my Moutaineers but that is a team i know much more about.

From where he is from I see him headed that direction if he leaves.

BR has the right idea regarding Tate Martell, although I agree with noreply in that should Martell leave, it will probably be out west towards Nevada/California.

Martell is someone LOTS of schools out that way would kill for in the case of a transfer. Yeah, he might go FCS to save his eligibility (however that situation looks), but I would be really surprised to see his collegiate career to end at a level below FBS.
Glory, glory to the Irish.
