Player Scouting Report

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

Arm Strength/Power
His arm strength is ok but it does not have the ideal velocity. He struggles to throw it with enough zip suggesting he will have issues fitting the ball into tight coverage
Short Accuracy (1-10 yds)
He is fairly accurate on short routes and its where he feels the most comfortable throwing. His offense includes a lot of short outs and screens.
Imtermediate Accuracy (10-20 yds)
He lacks the velocity to fit the ball in between defenders and often that hesitation causes him to throw it high. His lack of arm strength seems to be a concern when he tries to throw it over the middle.
Long Accuracy (20+ yds)
He misses his deep throws way too often and overthrows his receivers. He needs to have better touch and placement, but then again I believe his lack of arm strength plays a role in the fact he can not add enough velocity.
Pocket Presence
It is not great as sometimes he can slide in and out of the pocket but oftentimes he prefers to stay and becomes unaware of edge defenders. He has got good size to absorb hits from smaller defenders but not enough athleticism to be a threat to run.
It is not great because he does not possess the best athleticism. He does have read options implemented in the offense but he is not a threat to break it for a long run.
He is a one-read guy who tries to lock in on his No 1 target and if that does not work he either throws it low or high and away. He needs to be able to progress through his reads with more consistency.
He has pretty solid mechanics and it allows him to throw with some consistency. He can get erratic when he is pressured sometimes leaning back and throwing off his back foot.
He had knee surgery in 2017 that required him to stay out of the season. In 2018 he suffered an injury at practice with a sprained MCL. He also suffered a foot injury in 2019 against Auburn but it was minor.
I have not met him so I do not know.
Game Management
He can function effectively enough in an RPO type offense where its a lot of screen passes and short slants.
He does not have horrible decision making and he tends to make the right reads it is just that the football does not get to the receiver quickly enough due to the lack of velocity.
He is 6'5 239. This is an excellent size
He probably runs in the 4.9s
Play-Making Ability
He does not really possess much playmaking ability as he tends to rely on his receivers to make the play after the catch.
He had a decent 2019 season but that was about it. He threw 25 TD's to 7 INT's
He has got a good size but that's about it. His only salvation is to become a very good anticipatory thrower. He also needs to be put in an offense where a lot of short throws are implemented and there is limited play-action included.
I have not met him so I do not know.
He threw over 65% completion rate in the SEC but keep in mind a lot of those throws are screens and slant routes.
He has got good size and has not thrown a lot of interceptions. He also played against elite competition and helped his team maintain a top 10 ranking.
He has had injury concerns pertaining mainly to his knee. He also lacks the arm strength to consistently challenge defenses at the next level. He needs to be more consistent at progressing through his reads and throwing with anticipation. His deep accuracy also suffers from his lack of arm strength, and he ends up putting to much air rather than drive the football down the field which can cause turnovers especially at the next level.
Overall Analysis
He projects as a back up who needs significant development and needs to stay healthy. His size offers upside but he lacks the requisite arm to consistently challenge defenses. He had a lot of short passes and had his playmakers to bail him out. Although he did compete in the SEC and offers you experience against a high level of competition.
