"Accuracy isn’t the only thing that matters for a quarterback, but it is the hardest thing to change. Inaccurate quarterbacks at one level don’t magically improve at the next. We’ve seen this consistently as prospects have gone from college to the NFL.
Josh Allen’s big arm is only as useful as how often he can put the ball on his intended receiver and because of that, he was statistically one of the worst deep passers in the league last season. Allen is just the most recent example of a big-armed prospect whose accuracy limited how impactful that arm could be in the NFL."
What does accuracy say about the 2020 NFL Draft quarterback class including Joe Burrow, Tua Tagovailoa, and Justin Herbert?
Some interesting takeaways from the article above:
Tua, Hurts, and Tyler Huntley are top 5 in accuracy across the board behind Burrow.
Jake Luton might be severely underated: 28 wonderlic (Like Brees), 58 ball velocity (second strongest arm in the draft behind Eason), 52% deep ball accuracy was second only to Joe Burrow in this Class.
