Arm Strength/Power
7.00
Kyle Trask can arm strength is so powerful that he can force passes into tight coverage at the short level. However, some of his passes have the tendency to float through the air on occasion.
Short Accuracy (1-10 yds)
9.30
Kyle Trask is deadly accurate at the short level of the field. He excels with slant passes and can throw a person open at this level of the field.
Imtermediate Accuracy (10-20 yds)
8.30
Trask's chemistry with his receivers is most apparent at the intermediate level of the field. His ball placement on comeback routes is impressive. As a result, many of his big-time throws were aimed here.
Long Accuracy (20+ yds)
3.40
For a QB with a strong arm, Trask's deep accuracy is extremely underwhelming. He needs to work on his touch, especially on contested passes because he misses way too many deep throws.
Pocket Presence
3.00
Kyle Trask's pocket awareness is substandard. He suffers way too many blindside sacks and doesn't have the footwork or elusiveness to evade defenders in the pocket.
Mobility
4.50
Trask has the ability to extend plays on occasion and throw well on the run. Although his rushing ability is modest at best.
Vision
8.30
Trask does a great job of going through his progressions to find open receivers. He is best at locating receivers at the intermediate level of the field but isn't afraid to check down when necessary.

Decision-Making
5.90
Kyle Trask isn't a huge liability when it comes to limiting turnovers. However, his turnovers sometimes happen at the most inopportune times. To mitigate this issue, he needs to pay more attention to LBs in his passing lane. Plus, he needs to refrain from passing the ball when defenders are draped over him.
Size

Speed
5.00
Trask doesn't have wheels. In fact, he has average speed and that was before the knee and meniscus injuries.

4.00
Due to his poor deep passing and underwhelming mobility, Trask isn't a big-play threat. Although he has his moments, especially in the red zone.

6.30
Trask had solid production last season. Although in my opinion, he has not even scratched the surface of his productivity's potential.

Character
10.0
No red flags
Consistency
4.70
He can be erratic, especially when it comes to his passing accuracy. One drive he will be throwing dimes, the next he completely whiffs on half his throws.
Strengths
Standing at 6'5", 238 lbs., Kyle Trask has the prototypical height and frame to be a successful QB. When he drops back, Trask excels at standing tall in the pocket and scanning the field to find open receivers. As he goes through his progressions, Trask rarely misses open wideouts, especially at the intermediate level of the field. In fact, Trask's chemistry with his receivers is most apparent at the intermediate level of the field. Even more impressively, Kyle Trask is deadly accurate at the short level of the field. He excels with slant passes and can throw a person open at this level of the field.
Weaknesses
Kyle Trask has a lot of work to do if he plans on ending his UF career with a bang. For starters, he desperately needs to become more aware in the pocket since he constantly gets walloped by blindside defenders. Most of the time, these defenders are unaccounted for at the LOS, which indicates that Trask needs to work on his pre-snap reads. Speaking of reads, Trask needs to also become more cognizant of LBs and DBs in his passing lanes because he often forces throws through their zone coverage. However, the most glaring issue to Trask's play is his inadequate deep passing accuracy. For a QB with a pretty strong arm, Trask's sometimes completely misses his wide receivers on the outside. Therefore, he needs to work on his touch, especially on contested passes because he misses way too many deep throws. Although, even if Trask fixes all these issues, his leg injury history will always be an issue he can't remedy.
Overall Analysis
Looking ahead to next season, there is a lot to like about Kyle Trask. Contrary to popular opinion, Trask possesses a fair amount of arm strength and can throw WRs open at the short level of the field. Moreover, his stellar vision and physical frame will likely land him on an NFL team after he graduates. Although despite Trask's physical tools, many of his red flags are difficult to overlook. His injury history, deep passing woes and lack of pocket awareness are all issues that could very well carry over into next season. As a result, he enters this year as a prospective late-round draft pick.
