Draft Profile & Scouting Report

  • Very sound throwing mechanics with no wasted motion & excellent overall footwork

  • Throws really well on the run especially rolling right; accuracy will drop when rolling left

  • Can extend plays as well as anyone & overall moves very well in the pocket

  • Excellent arm accuracy; PLUS thrower to all levels of the field with excellent touch; especially nice deep ball accuracy

  • Above average completion percentage at 67.2% which when adjusted for drops is likely MUCH higher (Pitt receivers dropped a lot of VERY catchable balls)

  • Excellent job pre-snap directing offense; routinely goes through progressions and seems to see the whole field

  • Above average anticipation & ball placement is exceptional; maximizes WR YAC ability; LOTS of WOW throws on tape

  • Runs much better than you would expect with sneaky PLUS rushing ability; if he breaks the pocket can pick up much more than just the 1st down

  • Excellent combine performance suggests well above average athleticism: 40ty- 4.73 (71st PCTL); VJ- 33.5” (82 PCTL); BJ- 121” (93rd PCTL)

  • Adequate size for an NFL QB at 6’ 3”, 217 lbs however has VERY small hands (smallest for any starter in the NFL) and unclear how he will handle bad weather games

  • Tends to hold the ball too long at times looking to make that big play; resulted in taking 29 sacks (2021)

  • Arm strength is just a little above average with ~55 yd MAX; however appears to be adequate & produces excellent zip on intermediate-mid range throws

  • Forces balls at times but overall is an above average decision maker; 7 INTs in 2021

  • ? Is what you see what you get; a completely different QB in previous with huge step-up in terms of production & leadership in 2021
