My sources on the ground in Athens all agreed that of the 50 passes, only three weren’t thrown with accuracy. Stafford rolled out, threw deep comebacks … he threw everything.
But the big thing is that Stafford showed a strong arm and good accuracy. His second-to-last pass was a 35-yarder down the right sideline and on the money to Demiko Goodman.
What did I learn from Stafford’s workout? That I wouldn’t be worried about taking him with the No. 1 pick.
If Stafford has one fault, it’s that he throws the ball a lot like Brett Favre. Because he has such a strong arm and is such a great athlete, Stafford takes chances on throws that he shouldn’t attempt. It’s not because he doesn’t understand coverages. It’s just that he has superior confidence in arm and ability. That’s a fault that can be corrected.
