So I know these kind of reports are nothing but opinions but I still think it's interesting that folks at Bleacher Report consider CJ as the 15th best dual-threat QB in the nation. What Do you guys think? I think they have him place accurately in the sense that all the QBs above him on the list are truly better.

C.J. Brown has had a rough go of it, and his accuracy has suffered as a result. He battled injury and then lost his two leading receivers. In working to jell with their replacements, he missed some throws.
Maryland’s quarterback is not big on driving the football vertically. He makes his best plays in the intermediate area, finding holes in zones to give his playmakers room to operate.
After being hit hard, Brown become a bit indecisive and skittish in the pocket. Mix in the new receiving corps, and Brown had to pick his spots very carefully. In the run game, he can be hit-or-miss at times, but when he gets into a groove, like he did against Virginia Tech, he can roll.
Brown can get out of trouble at times, but he struggles when bigger defenders also possess speed-rush capabilities. He is not a big player, so he must avoid contact to make plays.
Brown is a good quarterback who did not have the year that he seemed poised to have at the start of the season. He still managed to help get the Terps bowl-eligible and beat a tough Hokies team. That’s a plus for the senior.
