Looks like Tanner has be working on his release. I am looking forward in see him this year for the Huskers. After all of these years to grow up as a college quarterback, he really should be ready now. I didn't want to bash him at Tulane, but I knew he was green and needed time to learn the college defensive game and pocket awareness. He has been around, so now it's his year.
His mechanics are the same as his sliding up into the pocket. He was young when he played here . He now has good coaching. He was as no longer wanted here so hopefully it works out for him there .
After watching his reps at the spring game, his mechanics look polished and his release looks a bit sharper. "Young" goes out of the window in your 3rd year in a program. Especially after given a much needed redshirt. I can't disagree with poor coaching hurting him, but that was the case with all of the QB's in the CJ era. (Along with a horrid offensive.) Right now, Tanner Lee looks like a grown man getting a shot to lead a P5 program. He always threw a good ball, but he wasn't ready to lead a FBS program and should not have started as a redshirt freshman for us.
Now, he has been around the game long enough to be able to showcase his skills by making better decisions. He is no longer green, and his awareneses really should be top notch after having 2 years of starting experience at the FBS level and 2 years of sitting on the sidelines learning two collegiate systems. Tanner is one of the "old guys" now. Nebraska doesn't have a killer schedule this year, so he really could make a statement early. I can't wait to see him because I really want to know how well he handled the heat after a complete 4 years.
