Love JT but I gotta admit -- I'm a little surprised that the WRs from the Saints rookie camp praised his accuracy and arm strength.

“I watched him on TV,” tight end Deon Yelder said, via The Advocate. “I saw his highlights in the East/West game, and now I’m here with him. He’s putting the ball on the money.”

Wide receiver Tre’Quan Smith, the Saints’ third round draft pick from Central Florida, agreed, saying, “He has a great arm. Puts the ball right there on you.”

Some scouts have decried Barrett’s accuracy, but he completed over 61 percent of his passes in each of his four seasons at Columbus, while averaging over eight air yards per attempt, and boasted a 104 to 30 touchdown to interception ratio.

Obviously, they've spent ZERO time debating JTB on 11w.
