Comments
Arm Strength/Power
8.00
He has a big arm and he throws with very good velocity.
Short Accuracy (1-10 yds)
7.00
He is accurate short but will miss wide at times.
Imtermediate Accuracy (10-20 yds)
7.00
He is accurate down the middle of the field but can overthrow at times.
Long Accuracy (20+ yds)
6.80
He needs to stop over anticipating at times because if he waits a bit longer he can throw it more accurately down the field and not behind or to the side.
Pocket Presence
6.50
He was not really challenged with pressure this year but the few times he is, he tends to through off-platform and changes his throwing mechanics.
Mobility
6.00
His mobility is solid but he is not an elite athlete. Probably mid 4.7s to low 4.8s
Vision
6.20
He tends to anticipate too much at times and tries too often to predetermine his throws.
Mechanics
6.50
His mechanics are inconsistent as he tends to change his footwork and throwing motion very often.
Durability
7.00
He injured his hand last year and it required surgery.
Leadership
5.00
I can not judge as I have not met him.
Game Management
5.50
He is much too over-aggressive and tends to be too cute with his shovel passes
Decision-Making
7.80
Has not thrown many interceptions throughout his career. Although he is aggressive he does limit the turnovers.
Size
6.50
It's solid at 6'3 210
Speed
6.30
Probably a mid 4.7s to low 4.8s
Play-Making Ability
7.00
He tends to make a lot of big plays happen but he tries too hard to focus on just the big plays rather than taking what the defense gives him.
Productivity
9.00
Outstanding 2020 season 22TD's to 2 INT's.
Intangibles
7.00
He has got some upside but needs to be more controlled playing.
Character
5.00
I can not judge as I have not met him before.
Consistency
7.50
He has been very accurate this year throwing for 75% completion rate.
Strengths
He is a big-armed QB with playmaking ability. He is accurate to all levels and does try to anticipate his throws. He has good athletism and can run if he needs to.
Weaknesses
He tries too hard to be a playmaker rather than taking easy throws. He also over anticipated and predetermined his throws too often. His OL grants him enough protection where he should progress through his reads better. He needs to have more steady mechanics as he is too quick to throw off-platform.
Overall Analysis
he needs to focus on stabilizing his footwork while also implementing the off-schedule throws at the appropriate time. He is a playmaker who is trying to avoid being a game manager. The quick sidearm throws are nice but they come out at a low trajectory and can get hit by defenders with their arms out. He needs to play more fundamental football. Rounds (Late 1st - Mid 3rd) (Colts, 49ers, Patriots)
