Kyler's inability to throw on the run is a real issue

    I wonder if its a function of him being an outfielder in baseball.

    Planting your feet is a major aspect of throwing in that position.

    Mahomes was short stop, far more throwing off balance from that position.



    Curious if he can elevate this part of his game. I think it needs an normal offseason of work to fix for Murray.

    Is it because he just run for the first down often instead of looking to throw? I see him always looking for a receiver first when he’s out the pocket but most of the time he does opt to run for the first and most of the time he does get it.

    If he decides to run when he has an open receiver it would hurt that grade.

    Russ was a 2nd baseman as well. So yea that benefitted him too.

    We all know Kyler has a strong arm in football. However, in baseball he was viewed as having just an average to above average arm as an outfielder. So maybe when he did have to throw off balance it wasnt as good as you'd hope.

    Hopefully he can work or improve on this...its the key to unlocking his full potential imo.

    Top 10 in the pocket in his 2nd year is a good positive though.
