Draft Profile & Scouting Report

  • Above average movement in the pocket; can maneuver some & steps up well into throws

  • Overall above average accuracy with a good completion percentage at 69.5%; throws with good touch on deep balls

  • Above average vision and tends to go through his progressions; occasionally getting to his 2nd and 3rd reads

  • Protects the ball fairly well with only 4 INTs in 2021

  • ? if limited production is secondary to offensive and run-heavy scheme

  • Throwing mechanics leave some to be desired with prolonged/slow release; struggles to throw on the run

  • Average at best arm strength with MAX ~50 yds; ball takes forever to get there at most levels

  • Expect that a large part of the completion percentage is elevated by safe short area throws; struggles with tight-window throws

  • Anticipation & ball placement are lacking; has to see it to complete it  & with his arm strength spells for a bad combination

  • Below average as a runner; definitely not a threat in the running game

  • Does have some injury concerns: upper body injury in 2020 (limited to 3 starts); knee injury in 2021 (limited to 10 starts)

  • Will be 25 y/o at the start of his rookie season
