Poll: What's Tyler Thigpen worth?

We have a notorious bias on ArrowheadPride, but let's give it a shot anyway.

Positives

  • Incredibly athletic QB.
  • Performed quite well throughout last season surrounded by limited talent.
  • More often than not, a great improvisor.
  • There are few QBs better at the bootleg or other plays that demand QB athleticism.
  • Great character.
  • Decent to great leader, if given the keys to an offense.  Can be quite fiery.
  • Very durable.
  • Can put up solid numbers in the shotgun.
  • He can step up at any moment in case your #1 QB goes down.
  • Negatives

  • Accuracy is a huge question.
  • Consistency is a huge question.
  • Struggles under center.
  • For every two good improvisations, there's one that's really bad.
  • Has been known to abandon good QB mechanics in a bind.
  • Stares down receivers.
  • Over-relies on your team's best receivers.
  • Is too prone to tuck the ball and run.
  • In short:

    We Chiefs fans are so used to Tyler Thigpen's play that we give him his own category.  How many times have you heard "Thigpen looks like Thigpen" from a Chiefs fan over the relatively small time we've known him?  He's exciting, radically different, radically inconsistent, brilliant sometimes and idiotic other times, but very well liked by his teammates.

    I say he's a career backup in this league for the teams that are willing to try to harness his unique set of skills.  There shouldn't be that many teams that are.

    I say he's a 5th rounder.
