Out of that list, I'll give you Lawson. I forgot about him.


Otherwise, not so much. Bucky seemed to be an also ran for QB from the moment he signed. Words like "project" and "athlete" were used frequently when discussing his potential at QB. I think I even asked here "what about him as the LT successor" and I don't recall any enthusiasm around the responses. I'd say Ford had some hype but as I said I think that was more a byproduct of looking at the bench and not seeing a legit D1 passer in the available options at the time. Motley? No. Never. He was a feel good local boy makes it to the bigs story but he was never billed as "the answer". Bottom line is when LT left there was nobody on the roster who was going to be able to do much beyond hand the ball off and run a very basic passing game.
