Cal junior QB Jared Goff "has a lot of good tools, particularly his release, and he's bulked up to 210 pounds heading into this season," reports SB Nation's Dan Kadar.
"He's a player to watch who could really rise throughout the season," wrote Kadar. You know we agree. Rotoworld is driving the Goff bandwagon along with ESPN's Mel Kiper, who ranks him No. 9 on his 2016 Big Board. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound star threw for 3,973 yards last year and we're predicting well more than 4,000 this time around. Rotoworld's Josh Norris compares Goff to Jimmy Garoppolo. May 22 - 9:21 PM

ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks Cal junior QB Jared Goff No. 9 on his 2016 Big Board.

"The big sell here is a big-time arm," he wrote. "Goff can drill the ball down the field and into tight windows with ease, and he has strong movement skills and anticipation for a player with good length who seems to see the whole field. Goff's totals are going to be significant, so the question of whether the skills translate quickly will be the key question." The 6-foot-4, 210-pound star threw for 3,973 yards last year on a 62-percent completion percentage with a 35/7 TD/INT ratio. In that offense, he should comfortably exceed 4,000 yards in 2015. Rotoworld's Josh Norris slotted Goff No. 15 in a recent mock draft and compared him to Jimmy Garoppolo.

ESPN's Todd McShay mocked Cal junior QB Jared Goff to the Cardinals at No. 9.

"The Cardinals eventually need to find a long-term replacement at quarterback for Carson Palmer, who will turn 36 this year," he wrote. "Goff has good size (6-4, 210 pounds), a big arm and is a naturally accurate passer. He was really productive as a true sophomore in 2014: 3,973 yards, 35 TDs, 7 INTs." Rotoworld's Josh Norris slotted Goff No. 15 and compared him to Jimmy Garoppolo. "He is willing to look at multiple receivers and has a quick motion," Norris wrote. "However, some will question his velocity since defensive backs are frequently close to making plays on his passes."

The FBS is adding three more bowl games in 2015, bringing the total to 42.

If you think bowl season boasts too many games, then tune out these three new contests. Per Brett McMurphy, the three games are in Tucson (Mountain West vs. Conference USA), Austin (AAC vs. Sun Belt) and Orlando (AAC vs. Sun Belt).

Cal sophomore QB Jared Goff boasts sound mechanics and natural accuracy as a thrower, according to Scout Inc.'s Steve Muench and Kevin Weidl.

The second-year star threw for 3,973 yards (his second straight year over 3,000) on a 62-percent completion percentage with a 35/7 TD/INT ratio. "The 6-4, 210-pound sophomore throws with excellent balance and has above-average accuracy and touch at all three levels," the duo wrote. "Goff also shows strong poise handling the pocket, and flashes the ability to scan the entire field and work through his progression. He will hold on to the ball for too long at times, and can speed up his internal clock, but overall, he has a very high ceiling and a bright future if he can continue to hone his craft." We love Goff's arm and long-term potential, but want to see him work on his accuracy when pressure forces him off his spot.

ESPN's Kevin Weidl said Cal "is in great hands the next few years" with sophomore QB Jared Goff.

"Polish stands out at an early age," Weidl wrote. "Naturally accurate thrower." Goff couldn't quite lead the 5-7 Golden Bears to a bowl game, but expect that to change next season. The second-year star threw for 3,973 yards (his second straight year over 3,000) on a 62-percent completion percentage with a 35/7 TD/INT ratio.

Cal sophomore QB Jared Goff completed 29 of 47 attempts for 279 yards and three touchdowns in the school's 38-30 loss to USC.

Goff was pretty impressive despite his yards per attempt average. The non-draft eligible quarterback has a nice arm and can hit throws at every level of the field, but poor placement when moved off his spot forces missed opportunities. Cal is a team on the rise and could be better next season.

Cal sophomore QB Jared Goff completed 32 of 52 attempts for 360 yards and two touchdowns in the school's 59-41 loss to Oregon.

Goff is quietly putting together a great sophomore campaign, as he outplayed Brett Hundley last week. It is too early to conclude on Goff and Penn State's Christian Hackenberg, but that is a debate to file away. Cal faces Oregon State next week.

California sophomore QB Jared Goff completed 23-of-41 throws for 449 yards and seven touchdowns and one interception in Saturday's overtime victory over Colorado.

Goff had never gone over four touchdown throws before. Cal's offense has made great progress this season under Sonny Dykes, an evolution apparent in Goff's numbers. He's 79-for-127 (62.2%) for 1,339 yards and a 17/3 TD/INT ratio through four games, during which the Bears are 3-1. The 6-foot-4, 210-pounder has "extraordinary talent and potential" according to's Bucky Brooks, who added in May: "The super sophomore is a polished pocket passer with A-plus arm talent and a terrific feel for the position."
Sun, Sep 28, 2014 06:25:00 PM's Bucky Brooks sees "extraordinary talent and potential" in California sophomore QB Jared Goff.

Goff showed nice toughness and gumption as a true freshman thrust into the starting lineup last year. Sure, he led the Bears to only one win, but nobody was expecting much during the transition season to new coach Sonny Dykes' aerial attack. "The super sophomore is a polished pocket passer with A-plus arm talent and a terrific feel for the position," Brooks wrote. "He is capable of making every throw in the book with zip and velocity, while also displaying the timing, touch and anticipation to make finesse throws down the field. Given more chances to toss the ball around the yard to a talented set of pass-catchers, Goff could lead the nation in passing yards as a second-year starter."

California coach Sonny Dykes will work sophomore quarterback Jared Goff (shoulder) back slowly.

"We’ve got to be careful not to put too much on him and blow his arm out early," Dykes said Sunday. "We’re going to bring him along slowly, probably split reps early and see how he handles it, see how he feels, give him the occasional day off." Goff suffered a right shoulder injury against Stanford last season and underwent surgery in November. He purports to be 100 percent healthy. "I went through a throwing program as soon as I felt good enough to throw, which started a few months ago," Goff said.

California true freshman quarterback Jared Goff underwent right shoulder surgery on Wednesday.

He's expected to be fully healthy for spring football. Goff started all 12 games in 2013, breaking Cal's single-season records for passing yards (3,508), total offense (3,446), passes completed (320) and passes attempted (531). "We are pleased that Jared is expected to make a full recovery and be back on the field for spring ball," head coach Sonny Dykes said. "We have confidence he can build on the promising campaign he had in his first season at Cal."

California true freshman quarterback Jared Goff will start Saturday against Washington State.

"He practiced well," coach Sonny Dykes said. "He's had a good body of work thus far other than the beginning of the Oregon game. I felt like he deserved it." Goff entered last week's contest against the Ducks as the nation's leader with an average of 435.3 passing yards per game, but he played terrible before Dykes inserted Zach Kline in the second quarter. Dykes re-opened the QB competition between Goff and Kline this week, but most believe that to have been nothing more than a motivational ploy. "I just wanted to see how [Goff] responded," Dykes said. "I anticipated him responding the way that he has. You never how an 18-year-old will handle it when things don't go his way ... He's handled it well."

True freshman Jared Goff has been named Cal's starting QB.

Redshirt freshman Zach Line had appeared to be the favorite, but Goff must have really impressed coaches this offseason. Junior Austin Hinder was also considered to be in the competition. "We feel that right now Jared Goff gives us the best chance to be successful as a team, but we are very fortunate to have three outstanding quarterbacks we feel we can be successful with," head coach Sonny Dykes said. The Golden Bears open their season against Northwestern and play Ohio State and Oregon in the first five weeks.
