Ryan Nassib Free-Falls

As the draft nears its end many people will have questions as to why this guy was drafted here and that one there. From watching the draft every year you can see that all teams are looking for different things and will have completely dissimilar ways to accomplish their needs. One guy that people might have a lot of questions about is Ryan Nassib.

Nassib the former quarterback from Syracuse has had a roller coaster kind of ride the last few months. Before rumors rose that he could reunite with coach Marrone in Buffalo many people really didn’t know that much about him. Soon after that rumors also emerged that the Jets could be interested. From a few mock drafts I seen, some had him as high as 8 and some were saying he could’ve been gone by the end of the first round. I just wonder how he could have fell down the board that much. He was selected today by the Giants in the 4th round (110th overall). There were some really good things about his game such as arm strength and zone reads. Some things not so good with his game are busy feet and deep throw turnovers. These individualities about him definitely played a role but to slide that far still leaves some people wondering what happened. Was there something people didn’t know? Maybe something will come out eventually but for now it just seems like he’ll be stashed as a backup for years to come behind Eli Manning.

My thoughts on Nassib were he could have been a 2nd round type player and potentially could have had a chance to start on a team that needed a quarterback. I never really seen him as a 1st rounder but some thought he could’ve with the Bills and newly appointed coach coming from Syracuse. Now most likely we will not get a look at him unless he changes teams or an injury occurs. What are your thoughts on Nassib?
