According to the draft 'experts' .. Paxton pros and cons.

Durability is a strength due to Paxton's size and strength. The one knock they say on Goff for comparison sake, is his smaller, more frail size and mobility.

Paxton has the arm strength to make all the throws, but they say that his touch and timing had been a weakness against better competition. For that reason, they think he's going to need about 3 years unlike guys like Luck who stepped right in and succeeded right away. But at least, those are things that can be addressed, where-as with physical limitations you're going to get what you get. A lot of it depends on who you have already at the position? Brock was lucky to be under Manning for 2-3 years. Do the Broncos have that luxury under Sanchez? That's the big concern. Jets are laughing at us, but they don't exactly have much to brag about lately.
