You'd think the son of a former NFL QB would have better ball positioning in his drops. Sweet lord, every throw is coming from the hip. If I'm a DC I'm telling my guys aim for the waist every time you get near him. You'll likely get the sack and the ball.

Sure, but he’s a sophomore in high school.

Which, again, for a son of a NFL QB, is unfathomable that his base fundamentals were ever allowed to stray.

Edit: after watching the tape, I don't see the issue. His release is fine, and quite quick. Perhaps not textbook, but certainly not waist level.

Not a lot to go by but this tape makes it look like Kitna Sr had a tendency to drop the ball down close to the belt level on many plays so it wouldn't be a surprise if he son does something similar.

At the same time he has spent much of the time since he retired coaching so you would think he could see a problem with fundamentals in his son and coach them out.

Right?! That's my point. Kid has a good arm and good size, but his mechanics are meh. I fear for Dak's progression in Dallas if Kitna is his QB Coach.

He looks a lot better as a Sophomore than that kid from Palmer(Class of 19) looked in his sophomore year?
