The second installment of Mark Schofield’s Interception Project continues at Matt Waldman’s RSP with an examination of Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert.
When the season began, it was assumed that the battle for QB1 would come down to Herbert and Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. Well, the Rise of Burrow obviously played a part, as perhaps did the injuries suffered by Tagovailoa, but Herbert has largely receded from that race.
I remain optimistic about Herbert. I believe he is a first-round prospect with talents and traits fit for an NFL quarterback. His Rose Bowl performance might help boost his stock as well, but others remain skeptical. A study of his six interceptions this season might help to illustrate where areas of concern with him lie.
