NFL.com analyst Gil Brandt on Yates:
"“I do believe that if you give him an opportunity, I do think Yates has a chance to be somebody that’s pretty good,” said NFL.com analyst Gil Brandt, who projects the 6-foot-3 passer from Georgia as a seventh-round pick. “He’s got size. He’s smart. He doesn’t have a really great arm, but there’s a lot of people in this league that don’t have really great arms. And I think [UNC offensive coordinator John] Shoop, I think he’s done a pretty good job of developing him.” (link)"
