Now obviously ball accuracy is something that cannot be changed

Intelligence, quickness of release, accuracy, arm strength, pocket awareness, mobility. That is the order of importance for me.

Further there are things that you physically can't change - hand size being one. I'd imagine there are some golden ratios in stuff like arm length, or shoulder to elbow/elbow to hand that likely make a difference. The way your joints a composed.
These aren't just guys that out worked the competition - a lot of times they are physical freaks on some quirky measurements AND they were lucky enough to get the mental side AND the work ethic.
In a game of inches and hundredths of a second sometimes the gifts you were born without cannot overcome the ones you work to develop.

NFL QBs really need 3 things: velocity, accuracy and ability to vary trajectory (related to "touch"). Fitz lacked all 3. IMO best combination today is Eli Manning. The Bills @ Giants 2 seasons ago was an all telling comparison, and the game I officially gave up on Fitz.

I originally wasn't a fan of Geno's because of his height but the kid is the real deal & is the top QB in this draft bar none. I also resisted the idea of EJ for 2 reasons (both of which are pretty lame I admit) 1) Florida 2) wierd name; but all in all when you really look at this kid, he just matches up as a great fit for the Bills.
