Mark Schofield shares why Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is a master of his craft in this episode of his RSP NFL Lens.
At the Matt Waldman Rookie Scouting Portfolio, we spend a lot of time breaking down and evaluating younger players. It makes sense, after all, given that “Rookie” is in the title of what Mr. Waldman has built. But from time to time it makes sense to re-calibrate your evaluation eye by checking in with one of the masters of his craft. When doing that at the quarterback position, Aaron Rodgers is always a good study.
Rodgers, like other quarterbacks as Tom Brady or Drew Brees, has defined over the years the traits and playing style that can work for years in the NFL. On these two plays against the Los Angeles Rams you see them brought to life. Whether it is Rodgers’s ability to move defenders with his eyes, to quickly decipher a defense and decide how to attack it, to his almost inhuman ability to deliver an accurate throw in the vertical game with a mere flick of the wrist, Rodgers is truly special:
Over his career, Rodgers has redefined the position. There is no wonder that a peer of his, Brady, looks at what Rodgers can do on the field and surmises that Rodgers would throw for over 7,000 in the New England Patriots’ offense. Rodgers is a true master of his craft and one of the greatest ever at his position.
