Strengths
Trey's pocket awareness, accuracy, decision making, ability to read and manipulate defenses are his best traits as a QB. He is so good at knowing when the pocket is about to collapse and has the strength to break tackles and extend plays. Trey also is phenomenal when going through his progressions and is able decipher the opposing defense and then manipulate them with his eyes to open up windows to throw the ball. Then he is really accurate when throwing through tight coverage. He runs a pro style offense so a lot of the progressions that he is learning in college will transfer to the NFL. Throws the intermediate and short out routes with extreme efficiency.
Weaknesses
He doesn't have an elite arm, his arm is maybe a little above average. He doesn't play against top competition and has had games where he completes less than 60% of his throws. Can sometimes seem as if he is too much of a game manager and not enough of a play maker.
Overall Analysis
If I had to make a decision today on Trey Lance, I would probably take a chance on him in the 2nd or 3rd round in the NFL draft. This is because his arm talent isn't anything special and he plays against lesser competition. But if he shows another year with almost 30 TD's and 0 interceptions I would have to consider him in the first round. He is a really smart player that has clear control of a pro style offense, and makes good decisions consistently. I think at worst he becomes one of the better back up QB's in the NFL, this is a kid with a very high floor.
