David Fales

David Fales hails from the same conference as Derek Carr as he plays for San Jose State. At 6’3, he is a little taller than Carr, but played for a worse team as the Spartans only went 6-6 his senior year compared to the Fresno State Bulldogs 11-1 regular season. Coincidentally enough, Fales handed Carr his only loss of the season in the season finale. In a spectacular performance he went  37 for 45 for 547 yards and six touchdowns without an interception.

His ended his senior year with 33 touchdowns to 13 interceptions, which is good on all accounts in college football. He won’t wow you with his arm strength, but he has the arm to make all the NFL caliber throws and has good decision making.

He has very good pocket presence, and is aware of pressure and steps in and out with ease. He has great vision, mechanics, touch and accuracy. The knock on him is that he doesn’t have much experience because he transferred schools many times and only has two years experience at San Jose State and that he tends to lock on to his receivers.

David Fales would be a steal if the Giants were to take him here or in the fourth if he drops, and groom him for two years under Manning to give him more experience and get him accustomed to NFL offenses. He would take the route much like Rodgers did in getting his way be a starting NFL QB.
