    To clarify, i don't think Stick's size is an issue, which is why i used the wording "perceived size". However Carson's rise was aided by his prototypical size. Easton isn't prototypical size. He's not far off, but he's not there. Wilson and Rodgers also played for FBS teams, so they didn't have the same competition concerns. I think size and competition is way overblown, but some of the NFL minds seem to put a lot of weight behind those things and they could affect his draft stock. Perceptions sometimes matter more than actual talent when it comes to the draft.

    If he can figure out a way to kill it at the combine if he gets a chance.. that will separate him. I don't know how fast Easton is but to my untrained eye, he's as quick/fast as anyone out there. Not Michael Vick type fast but certainly faster than most QB's.

    I hope he kills the combine. He was snubbed from the senior bowl, which tells me that his hype train isn't full force yet. Gotta get that baby chugging .

    Biggest question is how big are his hands? Needs to start stretching those things out!

    I'm more concerned with how many of his teammates came to his birthday party.

    Now that's funny. I see what you did.

I am gonna guess round 2-3. I have seen fans from the Jets, Dolphins, and Broncos mention Easton, so that usually means that the media and in those areas have speculated on Stick already. That is a good sign. The Dolphins fans seem most hyped about him.
    I think he's gonna have an uphill climb to get into the 2nd day (rounds 2-3). Based on input from actual NFL scouts he's behind all 8 Senior Bowl QBs and that doesn't even include Kyler Murray. Last year the 10th QB drafted was pick 203 (6th round). I'd guess his range is 5th-7th round unless he blows the doors off of the pre-draft process.

    I think he will climb once he starts interviewing. Hope so

    After watching Carson I'm thinking a lower draft pick or an invite to camp might be the better way for Easton anyways.
