Analysis:
Stafford has played at an elite level since the promotion of Jim Bob Cooter to OC. His accuracy and command of the offense are among the best in the league. His biggest improvement is throwing on the run. Lions are trying to sign him to an extension and keep him in Detroit for the future.


Jake Rudock 2nd year
6th round 2016
Contract: 1 year $540,000
PreSeason:  30/51/1 333 4 td 10/62/0 rush

Pro Day: 6030 207 4.88 29" 903 7.09 4.22

Analysis:
After starting his rookie year the practice squad, Jake was signed to the 53. HE has put on weight and looks primed to be the back up to Stafford.



Brad Kaaya Rookie
6th round 2017
Contract: 4 years $495,000
College: Miami 38 games 720/1188/24 9968 69 td
Combine: 6036 214

Analysis:
Kaaya left Miami early. Did not hear a lot of good things about him in Miami. Does not move well and has limited arm strength. Does he have a shot to be a back up in the league?
