Arm Strength/Power
6.50
He has average arm strength but its certainly good enough for the next level.He does have passes that wobble at times and are not tight spirals.
Short Accuracy (1-10 yds)
7.50
He is very accurate and usually does not miss short throws. You can trust him to make the simple 7-yard curl or be accurate on a WR screen.
Imtermediate Accuracy (10-20 yds)
6.50
It is very solid and again he does not have the biggest arm but its solid enough to throw the out route without any issues
Long Accuracy (20+ yds)
6.50
he can hit the deep ball with no issues and is very accurate with his throws. He throws a very arced deep pass allowing for easy catches for his receivers.
Pocket Presence
7.00
He does keep his eyes downfield and is willing to take a hit to deliver a throw. He trusts his protection.
Mobility
6.50
He has good very solid mobility and is not a statue in the pocket. He can move to an extent but by no means is this his strength.
Vision
8.00
He anticipates throws very well and he usually throws before the receiver is in position. This is why he is so accurate and one of his best traits as a QB
Mechanics
7.00
His mechanics have improved in 2019 making him a more consistent passer and thus making him more accurate.
Durability
6.50
He has note had any major injuries as of note.
Leadership
5.50
I can't judge this accurately as I have not seen him interact with his teammates.
Game Management
6.50
He manages the game very well and makes the necessary throws to move the ball consistently.
Decision-Making
6.50
Size
7.00
He is 6'4 216 making him Prototypical size for the position.
Speed
6.50
He is probably a high 4.7s mid 4.8s guy.
Play-Making Ability
5.10
Honestly not his greatest skillset. He does not throw well on the round and if you get him off rhythm I have a feeling he would really struggle.
Productivity
8.00
he has been extremely productive in 2019 which is why he is getting first-round buzz. He has 44 TDs and over 4000 yards this season.
Intangibles
6.50
He can definitely become a good Qb in the right situation, think of Matt Ryan.
Character
5.00
I do not know as I have not met with him personally.
Consistency
7.00
He has been very consistent this year and he has tremendous accuracy.
Strengths
He is the prototypical size at 6'4 215 and he has got a really good feel in the pocket. He delivers the football with timing and anticipation. He has the ability to get outside the pocket and use his legs.
Weaknesses
He struggles to throw on the run and needs to be in rhythm to be effective. He does not possess the strongest arm but it is more than adequate. He is a good athlete and not great. He needs to get better at escaping the pocket, he tends to stay because he feels more comfortable.
Overall Analysis
There is a lot to like here and he does have very good tape especially against SEC opponents. Although with any prospect proceed with caution as he may not be able to survive without a good offensive line. Once he gets thrown off rhythm and is forced to make plays outside the pocket it can be a bit uglier to see. (Rounds 1-2) Mid 1st - Early 2nd
