Braxton IS really, really good at football. His ability to run and scramble is incredible. I remember watching him play live in Ohio Stadium against Wisky, and he threw a couple of TD passes that were bigtime. A back-shoulder with some stank on it and a post rope from about 30 yards out. At the end of the first half he threw up a wounded duck that should have been intercepted. On the next play, he threw a rope TD to Philly Brown. So, he can throw well, but as has been noted, he has trouble making the throw to keep the chains moving - which indicates some problems with reading coverages and accuracy. But Braxton's abilities stand alone and his achievements are outstanding.
But a choice among them has to be made, so we have to compare. JT Barrett threw and ran for 45 TD's last season in just over 11 games! Are you kidding me? He operated an offense against Cincinnati that gained over 40 first downs! If God were going to create the perfect QB with the gifts to run Urban Meyer's offense, he would present us with JT Barrett. Braxton is a more gifted runner and Cardale has that cannon, but JT has the mental and physical tools to make all the reads, runs, and throws that makes the Ohio State offense ridiculous - and that's not speculation. We have all of his games on our dvr's and the stats are what they are. The arguments for the other guys are strong as well, but if we want to see Urban's offense run at close to its potential, there is only one guy who has proven he can do that.
