Trying to gauge talent on tape is difficult. Coming from a ‘small school’ is not the problem, but what kind of competition is the kid facing? My father coached many years, and one year had a great athlete who was so good he played QB AND MLB! Unfortunately, he was the only one on the team and they struggled all year going 3-8. Still people could still see the talent and the kid went to Syracuse on a full ride and had a nice career. A lot goes into evaluations beyond the film as well.
