He'll try to catch on with the Steelers:

64%, 1200+ rushing yards and 4 years of quarterbacking under 3 different coaches. Sounds like a prospect to me.

His argument "the defense is slower, but so are my teammates - so the window is the same" is a valid one, but I don't know if a small school QB has a harder time adapting to the speed of the NFL.
I can imagine that when you played at a higher level, the next step to the NFL is smaller - speedwise.
