Player Scouting Report

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

Arm Strength/Power
He has an absolute sling shot of an arm. Quick release and explodes out his hand. Able to throw deep off his back foot.
Short Accuracy (1-10 yds)
He is generally a really good short passer. But he tends to under throw and over throw sometimes when he can't set his feet.
Imtermediate Accuracy (10-20 yds)
Again he is generally really good intermediate passer but when he gets pressured he sometimes over throws the crossing routes.
Long Accuracy (20+ yds)
He is really accurate down the field, always puts the ball in a spot where his receiver has the best chance at it. Does sometimes over throw when pressured but when he throws deep he more than likely has good protection, he is very calculated when taking deep shots.
Pocket Presence
Has good awareness of pressure and is able to slide his protection and pick up blitzes. I would like to see him step up in the pocket and throw more, when he steps up he normally runs.
Really smooth runner, is able to make defenders miss. He runs with physicality as well, even though you don't always want your QB doing that.
Sees the field extremely well, able to read the defense and react accordingly. Ran a lot of run pass options.
Really compact throwing motion for someone so tall. Will sometimes not set his feet because his arm is so good or because he can't step up, this causes inaccuracy.
Has started every game since he was named to the starting lineup.
Seems to have good control over the team. And since he is a public figure it also seems like he has taken some leadership in his community as well.
Game Management
Really calm under pressure, has exceptional command of the offense in pressure situations.
Has great decision making most of the game. But he rushes when he is under pressure, which causes some mistakes.
He is 6'6 and 220 lbs, very tall and he put on a lot of muscle since he has been at Clemson.
Faster than you may think, but still not super fast. His running is more about his physicality and vision as a runner.
Play-Making Ability
Able to make big plays with both his arm and legs. He throws a great deep ball and just ask Ohio State if he can create a big run.
One of the most productive QB's in college football history. Won a National Championship, and was a runner up in another, as his two years as a starter.
Brings confidence to his teammates because of his ability to run an offense.
I don't know him personally but he seems like a good dude.
He went to back to back National Championships. And has only one loss in two seasons.
He is 6'6 220 lbs and has exceptional arm strength. With his size and athleticism he has the ability to shed off tacklers and create plays with his legs, where he is a well accomplished runner of the football. He has extreme control and knowledge of his offense and of opposing defenses. He knows how to win football games, he has the ability to will his team to victory with his play making ability. Throws a great deep ball, always putting it in the spot where his receiver has the best chance of coming down with the ball.
His biggest weakness to me is the inaccuracies when he was getting pressured, this is when he tends to over throw his receivers. He is also great at throwing on the run in a designed bootleg but when he is flushed out of the pocket he is less accurate. He makes a lot of quick decisions which will occasionally lead to him not seeing the under neath coverage.
Overall Analysis
He is one of the best QB prospects we have seen in a few years, definitely one of the most accomplished. His size, athleticism, and arm talent is a very rare combination. He is still a prospect though because he still has some inconsistencies when it comes to throwing under pressure. Still one of the best college QB's I have watched.
