Draft Profile & Scouting Report

  • Above average ability to escape the pocket, extend plays, and create on his own

  • Completion percentage was 62.5% however arm accuracy is definitely above average and fell victim to a lot of drops by his receivers

  • Has a rocket launcher for an arm and throws a very live ball; down field throws are crisp & showed many 65 yd+ throws on tape

  • Vision is average to slightly above as, looked much better managing the offense in 2020 with a more accomplished wide receiver group

  • Looking at his 2020 and 2021 tapes are two totally different quarterbacks; if put together could represent a very complete and potential STAR at the QB position

  • Above average anticipation and excellent ball placement; nearly always gives his receiver a chance for YAC

  • Did not see this in 2020 but rushing ability was on full display in 2021 with 828 yds/11 TDs on the ground; very crafty runner & tough to bring down

  • A little on the smaller side for an NFL QB at 6’ 1”, 218 lbs

  • Ball slap HAS-TO-GO as produces a slow windup; otherwise a very quick release and hopeful this can be cleaned up relatively easy

  • Footwork still needs some work; will throw off his back foot at times which hurts his completion percentage

  • Very quick to break the pocket in 2021 and needs to be much less aggressive as in 2020

  • Pocket presence is lacking at times; leads to a lot of strips/fumbles and sacks taken (48 in 2021)

  •  Always looking for the home-run ball in 2021; does not read the field and limited reads most of the time

  • Forces the ball at times and resulted in 9 INTs; will put the ball on the ground at times
