Player Scouting Report

Players Scouting Reviewer : mgomes429 . Position :Quarterback [QB]

Arm Strength/Power
He has elite arm strength. The ball comes out with a ton of velocity although at times it's not the tightest spiral.
Short Accuracy (1-10 yds)
He is fairly accurate in the short game. Although he tends to put a bit too much velocity at times causing receivers to hug their bodies to make the catch.
Imtermediate Accuracy (10-20 yds)
He tends to try to fit the ball into tight windows and at times he delivers and accurate football, but other times it flies over the receiver's head. He needs to sync his shoulders better with his hip and feet to become more consistent.
Long Accuracy (20+ yds)
He is inconsistent and pushes too much with his arm rather than using his entire body to throw. He needs to learn to throw to the hips and below so he can be more consistent and rely less on his arm strength.
Pocket Presence
I'm really impressed, he stands fearless in the pocket with pressure barring down on him. When he senses a bit of contact he escapes with relative ease and surprising quickness.
He is a lot quicker than I anticipated given his size. He accelerates well when he starts to run and it catches a lot of defenders by surprise because of his size.
He needs to learn to progress through his reads better. He locks on to one receiver and tries to utilize his arm strength to overcome tight coverage.
He needs to utilize his lower body mechanics and drive using his hips rather than just pure arm strength.
From what I researched he has been relatively healthy throughout his career.
I do not know him personally so I can not judge.
Game Management
He is not a game manager. He is a risk-taker and prefers to try to make big plays more often than he should.
It's questionable because he prefers to take longer throws down the field rather than check down to the receivers open underneath.
He is 6'5 240 with great athletism
He is much faster than you would think for a man his size. He also has surprising acceleration.
Play-Making Ability
Given his athletism and arm strength, you would think he scrambles and throws well on the run but it can be a bit inconsistent as he can often throw too high or too low. This is due to inconsistent mechanics and a lack of hip flexibility.
It's too early o tell at this point as he just became a full-time starter this year.
These are the type of physical traits scouts dream of when they analyze QB's. Elite Arm, Great Mobility, Great size.
I can not judge as I have not met him personally.
He stays above a 60% completion rate over these last two games but it's too early to tell now.
Elite arm strength, mobility, and size. These are traits that you can not teach and have tremendous value when you're a prospect. For a man, his size 6'5 240 he is surprisingly quick and can accelerate up the field almost like a TE. He has got a ton of upside but it's still too early to tell. He is also capable of making every throw and stands firm in the pocket.
He is very raw and inexperienced as of now. His mechanics need work as he is too reliant on his physical arm strength. He needs more experience and needs to read defenses better and take the check down when ts there. He will improve on this and continue to get better.
Overall Analysis
He is a very high upside player with the raw physical talent to be an elite player at the position. Although it will take time and at this current moment, it's a small sample size. In the projected 2022 Draft Class which he can decide to declare for I project him to be a Top 10 selection based on his skill set and upside but that is to be determined with time.
