Has the ability to make all the throws on all levels of the field and does a nice job anticipating routes and getting the ball out on time when he's able to see the route develop. However, is still really limited to only reading one side of the field. Works best from an empty set where he can make his pre-snap read and get the ball out of his hands quickly. Does a nice job getting the ball out quickly, holds the ball high, doesn't have a ton of wasted motion on his release and doesn't allow his frame to get too upright. However, will fall off throws anytime he feels pressure which really negates his overly accuracy.
Too often stares down his initial read and will wait for him to uncover and fails to work his way through his progressions and work the entire field. Footwork was better than expected and did a nice job maintaining balance in the pocket when asked to step up into throws. However, because of his bum ankle, he really struggled to generate much torque when trying to transfer his weight.
Impression: A natural thrower of the football who can make all the throws. However, is still learning how to become a quarterback and his limited mobility this year displayed just how far he has to come to be an efficient pocket passer."
Positive: Athletic college quarterback with a solid arm. Possesses a quick release, gets the ball through the tight spots, and puts touch on throws when necessary. Patient in the pocket, buys time for receivers, and locates the open wide out on the field. Elusive with the ability to escape the rush and pick up yardage with his legs.
Negative: Stares down the primary target. Must improve his overall mechanics. Does not throw with proper footwork, which adversely affects his accuracy. Very slow going to secondary wide outs.
Analysis: Vittatoe had a terrific college career yet is more of an athlete than he is NFL quarterback prospect. He could be kept on a roster and used in wildcat formations if he proves his worth on special teams."
As a redshirt freshman at UTEP in 2007, Trevor started every game and completed 223 of 407 for 3,101 yards and 25 TDs against 7 picks. In 2008, he increased those numbers to 246 of 418 for 3,274 yards and 33/9. As a junior in 2009, Trevor was already knocking on several UTEP career passing marks, and added 224 completions of 409 attempts for another 3,308 yards and 22 TDS v. 13 picks. As a senior this past season, he went 220 of 407 on a bad ankle for 2756 yards, 22/13.
Strengths: Highly productive and driven competitor with a tad of Aaron Rodgers in him. Can buy time with his feet. Throws a nice ball and gets it there quickly. Has above average arm strength, pocket savvy, and leadership skills. Worker, who will take coaching. Tough, and will play hurt. Wants to get better.
Weaknesses: A bit of a quirky delivery. Footwork is not at the pro level yet. Inconsistent accuracy. Runs hot and cold as a passer. Stats are somewhat inflated by the system. Will force the ball. Average overall measurables. May be maxed out physically. Picked up a couple bad habits while playing hurt this past season, and will need to iron those back out. Ankle must be checked out. Was asked to do a bit too much in college, and will need to adjust to being a cog, and to being more careful.
Projection: 6-7th round sleeper, who has the intangibles."
