He has some tools for sure, but he's not even in Carson's league, IMO.
You talking about Lorn Chief?
I also hear that the kid from California, Brandis I think, has some up side. I have a good friend who played for the Lobos a few years back and grew up in El Paso. He now works with that program a bit and he said something very simular to me.
I like Palmer but I agree with most. He is not Carson Palmer. Carson was good from day one at SC. His numbers don't reflect it but at that time, SC was not the program it is today. There offense was horrible. WRs were terrible and protection was none existant. Carson Palmer is as fine a QB as I have seen come out of college since Elway. I really like Carson Palmer. I like Jordan's natural ability as well but I agree. He is not Carson at this point. Still, he has a season to go and I think he could be a very good pro prospect before it's all said and done with.
Eli wasn't Payton when he came out either but Eli is doing OK IMO. Same could happen with Jordan if he can just keep in on track. That's the big thing. Can the kid be mature enough to see the big picture and do the right things?
