Good point. We don't know how Kizer or Boyle will actually do running our new offense. Giving them a chance at it is probably the best move - now. I too believe they should have drafted someone late who was out there, and who could be a decent career back up. He could have been 3rd man early on, and took over in a year or so as the back up, and possibly been very happy being in GB. I'm still concerned at how quickly Kizer seemed to abandon the play and try to make something happen off script.Here's the thing...he doesn't have to run MM offense anymore. Zero tape on him running this offense, to be fair zero tape of AR running this offense. The upside is that ML has had similar type QB and has seen them adapt to this offense. I don't think Kizer will ever be a top tier starting QB but do think if needed they would adapt the offense around his skill set...unlike Mike who well did nothing other than call the same game plan again and again and yet again.
PS I would have drafted a better backup QB as well
On Boyle, if I was to look at one of the two, I think he might be the most interesting person to watch. He will either outshine Kizer, or be dumped early enough in camp so they can bring some other FA in to give them a shot at either being on roster, or practice squad.
At first I didn't like Kizer's cocky attitude, but then I thought about it. If he brings game like he talks game, he could develop into a pretty good option on the roster. Ball is in his court.
