Runs a lot of the zone read in the Vanderbilt offense and takes most of his snaps from the gun. Is raw and leggy with his footwork, doesn’t settle himself well into throws and doesn’t generate much torque from his lower half and/or transfer his weight well toward his target. Possesses good enough arm strength to make all the throws, but takes away from his velocity because he throws from the waist up only.
Isn’t real natural from the pocket at this stage, doesn’t trust what he sees and struggles to let go of the ball on time anytime he has to go past his initial read. Too often looks to be waiting for receivers to uncover instead of throwing them open. Eye level has a tendency to go down and will flush himself out of the pocket, limiting his options when asked to go through his progressions.
Is at his best working outside the pocket where he can boot, cut the field in half. Looks most comfortable on the move, but doesn’t throw a real clean football. Passes tend to wobble and ball placement/touch are inconsistent as well.
However, he makes the majority of his plays on the edge with the run/pass threat. Has a high, over the top delivery, but seems to guide the ball at times, doesn’t seem to really trust his motion and let it go with much confidence.
Impression: The game simply seems to be moving too fast for him in the pocket to warrant a draftable grade at this time."
