this is a great question...it might sound cliche but Falk reminds me of a combo between Joe Montana and Tom Brady...and no I'm not joking...
1- he doesn't have the strongest arm, yet it is very solid
2- excellent field vision and you can see him going through his progressions
3- good pocket awareness, doesn't always try to escape and run, but rather step up to make a pass
4- cool under pressure- knack for being clutch
5- most accurate passer in college football according to his stats
when all is said and done this kid will be a top 10 pick, maybe top 5 if Darnold doesn't declare...count on it...if Mahomes and Trubisky went top 10, Falk is much further along in his development.
Don't get me wrong, I really like Luke Falk and I think he has great potential to be a good QB in the NFL, but saying that he is a top 10 or top 5 pick next year is overstating his value right now.
I like how Falk carries himself, and I think he is a leader. I just don't think he can come into the league right now and play on opening day.
I would like to see him watch and learn for a year, before you throw him to the wolves.
I'm definitely keeping an eye on him this year. Right now, I don't think he's up there with the likes of Darnold, Rosen, Allen or maybe even Mayfield. Yet he can make a name for himself this season and work his way into that conversation.
