Let me start this out by saying this is not a Matt Ryan replacement. I believe Matt Ryan has another seven good years left in the National Football League. However, in a passing league, teams should draft a QB every single year. How many times during the Bill Belichick era have the Patriots developed QB’s and then traded them for better picks than they spent on them? Since the Falcons drafted Matt Ryan, they have only drafted one QB, time for that to change.
Tyree Jackson has rare size for a QB, 6’7 250lbs, and he has a cannon for an arm. Jackson has next level ability to read defenses and does not panic in the pocket. He would give the Falcons a young vibrant backup and allow the team to move on from Matt Schaub after the 2019 season.
If he is still on the board at 152nd overall, the Falcon should absolutely pull the trigger on the MAC Offensive Player of Year.
