Draft Profile & Scouting Report

  • Commands the pocket well & moves around unphased under pressure with above-average footwork

  • Completion percentage was excellent at 69.2% in 2021

  • Flashes PLUS accuracy with pinpoint tight-window throws; excellent back shoulder throws and shows a beautiful deep ball

  • DOES NOT CARE will stare his receiver down and throw it in the perfect spot for the reception

  • Shows above average vision and will get to his 2nd and 3rd reads at times

  • Throws with excellent anticipation & ball placement and seems to routinely throw covered WRs open

  • UNREAL production in 2021 with almost 6,000 yds passing and 62 TDs!

  • On the smaller side for an NFL QB at 6’ 0”, 215 lbs

  • Throwing mechanics could use some work; slightly prolonged ¾ release but does flash off-platform throws

  • Only slightly above average arm strength at approximately 55 yds; ? if could be improved with cleaning up release

  • Benefits from ALL DAY TO THROW the ball and doubt he will have such a clean pocket in the NFL

  • Does not offer much as a runner and likely only able to pick up the occasional 1st down

  • Will turn the ball over at times due to forced throws leading to BAD INTs; 11 INTs in 2021 but boasted a 6:1 TD to INT ratio

  • Below average combine measurables in 40ty: 4.88 (33rd PCTL); 3-cone: 7.19 (31st PCTL); VJ: 30″ (42nd PCTL); and BJ: 109″ (37th PCTL)

  • Played 1 year in FBS and had elite production but unsure if the same level of production would be present at a power 5 school
