The move from college football to the NFL is a forbiddingly deep one for any quarterback. No matter how "pro-style" your collegiate system may be, what you'll face is something you can never truly be prepared for until you've faced it and had it break you down. The players you'll face are better, the coverages are more complex and the blitzes more exotic.
