Yeah, I mean, I don't see a ton of "raw talent". He's accurate when he has time and doesn't have to go off script. For an NFL QB, that should be basic. I've seen a lot of debate about his "talent" as well. A lot of people think he was overdrafted by the Browns.
Often times people confuse talent with success. Baker was a lock first round talent by virtually everyone in football, one can debate if he was the best talent worthy of the top pick but the skill set was not in question.
How Baker develops his skill set within the team game is what people should debating. He certainly needs to add discipline to his game and hopefully with a more structured environment he will.
Baker does have a lot of Favre in his game so I suspect he will remain somewhat of a lighting rod and will have plenty of advocates and detractors for the next several years.
People seem to have already forgotten Baker broke P. Manning's and R. Wilson Passing TD record in fewer games en route to his rookie of the year award. Throwing the baby out with the bathwater after the dumpster fire that were the entire Browns organization last year may be a bit premature.
No question there are risks with Baker, but it isn't actual raw talent.
Beyond Mahomes, Lamar, Watson, Wilson, Wentz and Dak, I think the next few guys behind that for me can switch fairly easily. I have Kyler next after those guys, but he needs to show me more before I put him up with the players I've already mentioned.
Baker obviously has to elevate his game.
