    Hey Matt, can you do an article on why it's so difficult for a college spread QB to transition to the NFL? Besides terminology, being able to stand over the line to see the defense, etc what else is key to making the transition? Is the transition the same for a college QB in a pro style offense? Why is it so difficult for them to learn how to take a snap from under center? Thanks, your stuff is great!

    Mr. Bowen,
    I am a Lions' fan. I have been cursed into this fanhood by birth, but for some crazy reason I take pride in being a Detroit Lions' fan. I bleed honolulu blue and silver. I respect your draft analyis and Miller's the most. I also love your articles that explain schemes, especially coverages. I am wondering is there any chance than Danny Shelton could fall to my beloved Leos at pick 23 ?
