2. Rocket arm
Even if you are the biggest Tua Tagovailoa fan in the world, you have to admit his arm talent is limited in the NFL. Tagovailoa cannot make certain throws many elite quarterbacks can make because he just doesn’t have the arm strength to do it. I know some people will say he’s going to work on that this one offseason and blah blah blah, but come on. Tagovailoa’s lack of arm strength is one of the traits that will always hold him back in the NFL.
That will never be an issue for Willis, as he has a rocket launcher attached to his right arm.
Willis’ size (he measured at 6-0 3/8 at the Senior Bowl) is a concern for me, just because I would love to see Miami get a Greek god, like Justin Herbert or Josh Allen. However, Willis’ size doesn’t hurt his throw power.
Willis can make throws Tagovailoa could never make just on pure arm strength alone. There are so many throws Willis has made that you just say, “wow, he’s got a cannon!” His arm strength was on full display at the Senior Bowl.
Ben Allbright shared some numbers that highlight just how strong Willis’ arm truly is, and the numbers are eye-opening.
Having a quarterback that can rip the ball down the field is a huge advantage in the NFL, and it’s one of the main reasons Miami needs to draft Willis.
