Richt assesses Perry after first practice

Mark Richt broke down what he saw from freshman QB N'Kosi Perry after fall practice #1 .

"He's got very good passing fundamentals, which is what I thought. I've seen him throw at camp and 7-on-7s, but in the context of what were asking him to do, he really does have good quarterback passing fundamentals. Not a lot of wasted motion, he's got nice zip on the ball, he understands touch. He's a passer, not just a thrower."

Perry seems to be on par with what is expected of him physically, but the question remains is he understanding the concepts, language, and everything that comes with leading an offense at the quarterback position.

"I'd say he's getting about 50% of it, which is probably pretty good for the pace were going at," Richt added. "We'll install at a pace that's faster than comfortable for him, but he'll catch up."

Richt said that Malik Rosier and Evan Shireffs ran the first team offense today, with Perry and fellow freshman Cade Weldon running the 2nd and 3rd units. Richt also said, "we may continue the same rotation, but I'm not sure."

Good write up, touching effectively on the key concepts.

I've never doubted his physical abilities as a passer, but it's the bolded part that will determine whether he's the starter, and how fast he can advance in the rotation. Picking this up varies significantly from person-to-person, so to my way thinking there's no way of knowing how quickly he picks this up, other than charting his progress through the practices and scrimmages.

This is why I've always thought it's premature to say he definitely will be starter game one or in any of the first few games. There's just no way to know beforehand how quickly he adapts and picks this up.
 
Rosier kinda fast as runner. I wouldn't mind rpo with him for games 1-3. Then toss Perry the Keys at the bye week. Rosier can beat FSU with Walton and our weapons
 
Look for Chris Herndon to disappear from the post-practice interview circuit after revealing that Perry fumbled snaps. Rick hates any real info being divulged.

So you want Rosier to beat FSU and then give the job to Perry? Good stuff.

You can't make this shīt up

I said can not will. Read more.

I don't got us beating FSU right now. Which is why I said hand Perry the Keys during the bye

If Rosier starts and leads us to a victory over FSU, why in the world would we change QB's?

I think it is safe to say ideally even if Perry doesn't start game 1. I want him to see live action over whoever is 2nd string.

I'd also love to blow out Arkansas State in the first half and see him get reps in the second half of that game as well.
 
Suddenly, everyone hedging their bets on Perry da gawd...

Perry still looks pretty thin up there. Any updates on his weight?

If Rosier can beat noles, just go with him for the year. Who else is there after them.

I'd turn Perry lose if he grasps the O. You have 2 exhibition games before you start the season at FSU.

SOP. The QB coming in is better than the ones on the bench and the ones on the bench are better than the on starting. Grass be greener on the other side of the road.

That's obvious though and everyone missed the point. I'm assuming that he doesn't. I said he can beat them.....if he did common sense says he would be the starter the rest of the year. If he doesn't pull him and let Perry start getting 1st team reps around the bye.

That's all I said. Ni66as wanna take it a different way.
 
Did he say how Rosier and Sherrifs looked?

No, I added everything he said about QBs


Being cryptic. Perhaps Richt has already made up his mind on the QB situation having seen all spring what he had in the others, and seeing Perry in 7-on-7's.


Or perhaps nobody asked him a question about the others as would be expected with press like SDM.
