Joe Milton at Senior Bowl

Some of you folks - smh. I swear if he goes pro and becomes the second coming of Tom Brady, rather than give Joe credit for improving, you will Anon him? Say what!? Instead of admitting it is JoMil, you'll push the conspiracy theory aliens got hold of Manning DNA and created a darker version of Peyton.
 
Some mad scientist type offensive guy may see if there's something to develop based off Joe's physicals. There's a fascination with size and a howitzer arm in a QB in much the same way truly elite speed can get a WR looked at a lot harder than other metrics might suggest. A sort of "What if?" that makes the idea of looking at Bob Hayes and wondering if Renaldo Nehemiah (or any other track burner with limited to no real football experience) might be worth a shot. Could be the same with Joe's arm talent.

I don't think the odds are particularly favorable but it'd be nice if Joe could manage to have that kind of story.

Joe Milton III, Tennessee​

Kiper's position ranking: QB9

Earliest predicted draft range: Middle to late Round 5

The 6-foot-5, 235-pound Milton was the biggest of the quarterbacks in Mobile, and those who saw strengths in his game pointed to a quick release when he is decisive and raw power in the arm. But Milton, a transfer from Michigan who took over for Hendon Hooker in 2023, can struggle with his consistency.

"He makes all the throws with the same velocity, and some easy completions get away from him," said one AFC South scout who saw Milton play several times at Tennessee.

Latest predicted draft range: Priority undrafted free agent

Evaluators said they need to see better decision-making from Milton, particularly when coverages are rolled or changed at the snap. In those situations, he tended to default and leave the pocket when, in some cases, he might not have had to.

Evaluators polled said Milton's physical stature and his arm strength, however, would be enough for a team to draft him on Day 3. Milton completed 64.7% of his passes with 20 touchdowns and five picks in his final season.
 
According to his stats and opinion yes, but not mine
You've wasted a lot of time arguing about something so obvious, that to deny it simply points to someone not being in touch with reality.

To bring up comparative stats means to COMPARE.

Anyone honestly trying to compare Joe Milton with college Peyton Manning just needs to shut up.

Stop arguing with people that are in complete denial.

Jalen Hurts reminded me of Milton before he went to OH ST. He was athletic enough to run and he had a better than avg. arm but he wasn’t very accurate. I’m not saying Joe will become the same type pro but they were or are very similar talent wise.

By the way, you were obviously wrong on the senior bowl.

MOBILE, Ala. -- Washington quarterback Michael Penix Jr. took a moment, gave a slight nod to the question and summed up what a week at the Senior Bowl could mean for him and the rest of the 2024 NFL draft prospects in attendance.

"Here? This is where you can show them what you can do,'' Penix said. "Best of the best here. I've said, every drill, every rep matters, and you want to get the most out of every single one of them. Because everybody here is one of the best at their position. ... So, all [the NFL scouts and personnel executives] get to see you against that and with that."
 
How many times could this have been said about Joe.
Spot on. Situational awareness was always his biggest flaw. Love big Joe, but he doesn’t have it between the ears when it comes to decision making on the football field. Hopefully the NFL guys can do something about that because 6 years in major college football couldn’t.

That boy stinks. It's a miracle we won 8 games with him.
He didn't have the tools Hooker had. Namely, WRs that didn't drop balls so often. Or a high performing but underrated OL. Then there was the usual high expectations from fans, ready to give him rabid bites if he didn't exhibit godhood.

As for how he smelled, he went out to practice and worked hard, worked up drenching sweat, which is a heck of a lot more than perfect fans did. A shame we have folks who are incapable of saying thank you for the boy managed to do while here. Mincey, maybe, just maybe, I understand why you left. If there's a way out of sewer, tank it before it rains.
