NFL Rookie Watch
Shedeur Sanders officially broke NINE school records in his Colorado debut.Sanders said that after the game, he received a text saying “don’t be satisfied” from Tom Brady (HOF QB).Many NFL scouts reportedly believe if Sanders continues to play the way he did last week, there’s a “slim chance” he makes it out of the Top-10 picks in the NFL Draft.Many NFL scouts also reportedly believe Sanders’ performance “entered” him into first round consideration immediately.The Buffaloes QB is making HISTORY
 
This game should guarantee we get to see another year of Shedeur at Colorado. Oregon has elite talent everywhere compared to CU, but Sanders looks lost right now. Gotta understand you're not going to have a clean pocket, but he's just standing there.

Agreed, I know he doesn’t have time to throw but he’s struggling moving around in the pocket.

Someone is on him in the blink of an eye on every play, but his pocket awareness so far has been terrible. Instead of moving around to buy time or simply throwing it away, he just keeps driving backwards giving 1-2 more guys an easy run at him. Pretty disappointed in what I've seen so far in this one, and I'm a fan. Maybe write it off as one game, but it doesn't get any easier next week. This team clearly misses Hunter on both sides of the ball but I don't think it would have made much of a difference if he was there. Outside of Shiloh, the CU secondary looks pretty bad. #5 for Oregon looks like a prototypical Seattle DB. Showing out so far in this one.
 
It's the first time he's been in college, that he faced a much better team.

Everyone gets their butt kicked. We don't even know how he responds. There's no rush

I'm not writing him off by any means, he has shown some elite traits but he's got a lot to learn. They're overmatched in this game and it should be a good lesson for Sanders, but it certainly highlights his inexperience in tough spots and areas of weakness. As good as he's been pre-snap weeks 1-3, he's 10x worse this game. If you have to check down or throw away every pass instead of taking these sacks, it's better just punting and not going backwards. The blowout isn't and shouldn't be put on his shoulders, Oregon has receivers running WIDE open and RBs just gashing them ever play, but Sanders' poor pocket presence in this game shouldn't be ignored (and I'm sure it won't be, especially by Deion).
