This Was Peyton Manning's NFL Advice For Florida QB Kyle Trask

As Florida QB Kyle Trask prepares for the NFL Draft, QB legend Peyton Manning has some sage advice for him. Per 247Sports...

“If I could go back and do my rookie year all over again, I think there’s a fine line, Kyle, between respect the game and the speed of it but not over-respecting it where you’re hesitant and you think, ‘Oh, I can’t make that throw. That’s an NFL defensive back. There’s no way I can throw that,'” Manning said. “I think I probably did a little bit of too much of that, and maybe over-respected it and I just didn’t play well. But give it the respect that it does deserve, right? These NFL defensive backs, they can cover. The windows are tighter. There are certain throws that you just can’t make and you’ve got to throw it away. That was my hardest thing.

“But just like you, I just kept working, kept persevering, trying to learn just how fast the game was, try to get more comfortable and certainly that game’s going to slow down and you’re going to get in that comfort zone. So just kind of be prepared for anything is what I would tell you. Keep working. Keep trying to learn. But coming out of Florida, coming out of a great program, playing in the Southeastern Conference — that’s going to pay a lot of dividends for you, I think, and just wish you the best of luck, pal.”
