ESPN is airing a 30-part QB Countdown series where NFL analyst Ron Jaworski examines each of the league's veteran starting quarterbacks and Tim Tebow. The daily series began June 11 and continued on Friday as he ranked Andy Dalton 19th. It is interesting to note that Carson Palmer was ranked 21st by Jaws.
Courtesy of ESPN, Below are some transcribed comments from Jaworski's assessment:
"Andy Dalton comes in at number 19. The more I evaluated Dalton, the more I liked him. He does have some arm strength limitations, but he compensates very well with his anticipation and his accuracy. That was particularly evident in the red zone. And that is an absolutely critical measure of a quarterback. The numbers were exceptional: 15 touchdowns, no interceptions. Dalton was very effective in the boot action pass game. He did that well at TCU, and his ability to throw accurately on the run transitioned well to the NFL.
"Anticipation is an essential attribute to play at a high level. It is more important if you are not a power thrower. Dalton was an outstanding anticipation passer. Look at when he began his delivery on this throw. Right here. A.J. Green was still running vertically. That is tremendous.
