Lacks NFL arm strength, has an inconsistent release and is just really raw in all areas of the game from a mechanics standpoint. Needs to do a better job maintaining his balance when releasing the throw and generating more torque from the lower half. Doesn’t transfer his weight at all into throws, really taking away from his potential velocity as a thrower, as he routinely just throws from the waist up.
Gets the ball out quickly and on time when he knows where to go with the pass. Is some what accurate in the short passing game and does a nice job making his pre snap reads, determining where to go with the football and getting it out of his hands.
However, reads only one half of the field typically and doesn’t look real comfortable when asked to work any kind of secondary read. His eye level goes down quickly, he routinely flushes himself out of the pocket instead of stepping up and the game seems to speed up on him when he’s on the move. Now, he is a “plus” athlete for the position who can create in space, buy time with his legs and occasionally create the big play.
However, struggles with balance/zip/accuracy when throwing on the run. Needs to do a better job protecting himself into contact, exposes too much of his frame into hits and has had a tough time staying healthy throughout his career. Immaturity issues and character concerns have also followed him throughout his college career.
Impression: Kind of a college version of Jeff Garcia, but plays with even more reckless abandon. Is really inconsistent with his footwork, release and simply not sound mechanically. Lacks the necessary physical tools needed to make up for it."
