Joe Milton senior highlight video

Submitted by BlueLikeJazz on November 14th, 2017 at 2:19 PM

A lot of what we've seen before: Suspect mechanics but OMG arm strength. 

The other thing that stood out to me was his accuracy, both on improvised plays and designed throws. Yes it's a highlight video, but that's an awful lot of DO or CA passes.


EDIT: A link would help:

My god that arm strength is impressive.. He can get it to receivers 30 yards downfield in the blink of an eye. I'm not sure there's been a recruit in the last 5 years that I want to see hit their ceiling more than Milton.

hope he's got a change up to go with that fast ball. I feel like that was Shane's pitfall to becoming a high level QB, he was still slinging bullets on 5 yard slants to the slot receiver and no one could handle it. That's something Peters almost does too well when he's checking it down. Thing just seems like it's not even going to get there sometimes.

According to his HUDL page, he's 6'1", 175, runs a 4.5 40 (Ok - maybe 3 out of 5 fakes but he sure looks fast on tape) looks really quick and has a 40 inch vertical with great moves to boot. Runs solid routes. I'm no recruiting expert but he looks like a 3-star on his film. He looks at least as good as number 12 in the video (Shane Hooks who is a 247 3-Star headed to Ohio).

That's the type of player we need. All the great QB's in the world won't mean spit until the receiving corps rounds into shape. Our current receivers seldom seem to be able to gain separation from the DB's they face.  Not sure if that is a function of skill or inexperience. But filling those positions with viable targets for the QB's should be a priority. IMHO.

McCaffrey's runs in high school and Milton's. You will see that Milton is faster, shiftier, and has much more power. People get the illusion McCaffrey is a better runner because his HS team used his legs more and he was playing against slower opponents than Milton did so his rushing stats look better on paper.

Milton has the best arm talent I’ve seen in a long time. I have high hopes for him under Harbaughs tutelage. His highlight tape is excellent, but his completion percentage is still nowhere near where it needs to be. Definitely redshirting, but after a year or two he could really be an unreal QB. Will be interesting battle between him and Doyle.

Looks like the ceiling is a rich man's Trace McSorely. About the same mobility but bigger arm and not much fear in throwing a guy open. Just gotta get that wind up tightened up...
