Oregon QB Marcus Mariota Has No Weaknesses Whatsoever, According To Arizona's Rich Rodriguez

Every quarterback has at least one weakness, right?

Peyton Manning and Tom Brady both lack mobility, Drew Brees and Russell Wilson are both short, Joe Montana's arm strength was poor, etc. 

Rich Rodriguez says Marcus Mariota doesn't have one. The 6-foot-4, 212-pound quarterback, who, according to's Greg Bedard, "looks like he was designed by a franchise-quarterback computer program," is going up against Rodriguez's Arizona team this Thursday at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Ore.

Mariota, one of the front runners to win this year's Heisman, has thrown for 1,135 yards, 13 touchdowns, and zero interceptions so far this fall. The redshirt junior is, in the minds of most NFL scouts, a sure-fire top-five pick in next spring's draft. 

Oregon and Arizona are set to kick off at 10:30 p.m. E.T. Thursday. The game will be televised by ESPN.
