I’m curious why you feel that way? Or why others would draft Burrows over Tua?
Here’s how I see it.
Burrows was a 3 star recruit out of high school. He hadn’t done anything before this year. Most felt prior to this year that he would go undrafted at best. He transfers into a spread offense and he takes off. He struggled at Ohio in a pro style offense so there will be a huge learning curve adjusting to the NFL. Not to mention the question if he can actually run an NFL style offense.
Tua was a 5 star recruit. He has multiple years of high level play. He won the national title as a Freshman in a prostyle offense. He’s had years of high level play in an NFL style offense. Everyone felt prior to this year that Tua was the best NFL prospect to come out in a very long time. Which means he should transition well to the NFL.
Don’t get me wrong Burrows looks great and his stats are phenomenal. Burrows kinda reminds me of Montana with his timing and ball placement. But … can he do that at NFL speed and from an NFL style offense?
If I were drafting then I’d take Tua personally.
I see Burrows as the media darling right now. I view him more like a rookie unknown QB that lands in offense that can showcase his strengths. But what happens when defenses get an offseason to plan for him?
Bottom line is Tua is the far safer pick. He’s almost a guarantee to be a quality NFL QB.
