Matt Waldman’s RSP Boiler Room: QB Anthony Gordon’s (Washington) Feet Tell the Story

Matt Waldman’s RSP Boiler Room examines a handful of plays from Washington State quarterback Anthony Gordon, a 2020 NFL Draft prospect with the arm and the eyes of a starter but the feet need to catch up. 

Anthony Gordon has a gifted release. When he’s throwing in rhythm, he can place the ball like an NFL starter. According to Quarterback Collective coach Will Hewlett, who has worked with Gordon this winter, Gordon has the “It Factor” as a player and leader.

Gordon’s feet hold him back. The better he gets at moving his feet efficiently, the more likely his immense gifts from the waist-up will emerge to the forefront of his game.

In this RSP Boiler Room, I show you how Gordon’s feet either help or hurt his field vision during his drops and when he’s moving in the pocket. When his feet remain close to the ground and his feet don’t drift outside his shoulders, he sees the field and finds receivers with the accuracy of an NFL veteran. When they don’t, Gordon misses opportunities that are must-wins for an NFL starter.
