Arm Strength/Power

8.20

After watching all MSU QB's as of Kirk Cousins, I can confidently say he has the strongest arm potential of any that I've watched.

Short Accuracy (1-10 yds)

6.80

Decent, lot of overall inaccuracy has to do with poor mechanics and footwork bc of coaching.

Imtermediate Accuracy (10-20 yds)

5.60

Decent, lot of overall inaccuracy has to do with poor mechanics and footwork bc of coaching.

Long Accuracy (20+ yds)

5.20

Decent, lot of overall inaccuracy has to do with poor mechanics and footwork bc of coaching.

Pocket Presence

6.60

Moves well in the pocket despite being under pressure very, very, very often.

Mobility

7.30

Plays at a faster speed than he tests.

Vision

5.70

Has very inconsistent vision. Seems to lack progression from Freshman season which I blame on poor offensive coaching.

Mechanics

4.10

Poor offensive coaching. No coach turnover in his 4 years. Means there is potential there.

Durability

7.50

Most injury issues I contribute to the large amount of hits. Never felt he had glass bones though.

Leadership

5.90

Too many times he seemed to be whimpering on the sideline instead of talking with teammates or trying to hype them up.

Game Management

6.70

For the team he played w/ I thought he did a fine job. Obviously could've been better but I think a lot of picks were him trying to make plays in an offense that prohibited it.

Decision-Making

4.60

Another that I believe comes from poor coaching. Saw little improvement over his years.

Size

8.10

Great size and potential.

Speed

8.00

Play speed, not 40 time at combine

Play-Making Ability

8.50

Seemed to have an "it factor" at times at MSU despite constantly being held back in a poor offensive scheme. Think he could be helped with development.

Productivity

6.80

Definitely could have been better with a lack of progression through the years. Did well with what was handed to him, which wasn't much.

Intangibles

7.50

Going back to the "it factor"

Character

7.00

Haven't seen anything to say he's a bad guy, but haven't seen much in the way of leadership either...

Consistency

3.40

Poor coaching... am I a broken record yet?

Strengths

Size, Play Speed, Arm Talent, It Factor, Potential

Weaknesses

Decision Making, Mechanics, Lack of development, Poor coaching means years lost of development, played in poor scheme in college

Overall Analysis

Plenty of arm talent and potential but lacks the development and polish you hope to see from a senior leader from a well'known football program. Definitely needs time on a practice squad or in the XFL. Has loads of potential but needs the right coach to help with the mechanics and footwork.

Compares to

Deshone Kizer - XFL Version

Floor

Undrafted QB who never makes it past XFL, CFL or P-Squad

Ceiling

Good NFL Backup/Fringe Starter in the right system and scheme w/ development
