The Olympic Summer games are set to kick off later this summer, and the eyes of the world will be on one of the planet’s greatest athletes, Simone Biles. Biles is set to take the stage again as one of the dominant forces in gymnastics, and is coming off securing her seventh national all-around championship at Fort Worth earlier this month.

One of her best events is the balance beam, and at the nationals this month Biles secured the top spot in that event with a score of 29.250.

What does this have to do with Oklahoma quarterback Spencer Rattler? Well, beyond reminding you to tune in when Biles an the rest of the national team competes in Tokyo later this summer, Rattler is like many quarterbacks in that he needs to balance his athletic ability and creativity outside the pocket, with how he manages life inside the pocket.

Rattler is getting a ton of attention as a potential QB1 next cycle, and with good reason. Athleticism, confidence and the ability to create outside the pocket are desired traits at the next level. In this video we’ll dive into these traits, and also highlight areas where he can clean up his pocket management a bit:

Rattler does a number of things well as a quarterback, including his ability to create outside the pocket. If he improves at how well he handles things inside the pocket, he has the makings of QB1 next spring.
