2014 NFL Draft: David Fales Being Overlooked

+Read full article
David Fales, San Jose State

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

As the 2014 NFL Draft has drawn closer and closer, the top quarterbacks in this year’s class have been picked apart and over-analyzed to the point that some feel as though there isn’t a QB worthy of being taken in the first 10 picks. However, there are still quite a few late-round prosepts who haven’t gotten nearly the same amount of publicity, despite putting up great numbers in college. David Fales, out of San Jose State, is one of those players, and, unlike the players at the top of the draft, Fales has been overlooked throughout the entire draft process.

Despite the lack of recognition, Fales remains a solid NFL prospect. From a mechanical standpoint, Fales is on point, and his strengths mesh nicely with today’s NFL game. With solid accuracy, excellent timing and underrated arm strength, it’s easy to see what makes Fales a desirable prospect. Throw in above-average mobility, and Fales becomes even more intriguing.

That said, Fales, like every prospect, has his weaknesses, the most glaring of which is his tendency to force passes. Fales also sometimes finds himself throwing off-balance, which can sometimes lead to errant throws and a lack of velocity. With that said, however, Fales’ strengths still greatly outweigh these correctable weaknesses.

Overall, while he is probably not on the same level as someone like Teddy Bridgewater, David Fales is still a nice prospect at the next level. He probably won’t ever be a star, but Fales has the potential to become an effective NFL starter.

Teammates' Urine Came In Handy For Ochocinco

Chad Johnson was one of the greatest entertainers to have ever played in the NFL, but he also marched to the beat of his own drum. During an appearance on the Mike & Mike Show yesterday, Johnson revealed that he used to heal ankle sprains by soaking his foot in his teammates' urine. While no player wants to miss time with an injury, this just sounds disgusting.
