Projection

4-7 Round Day 3

Owns the requisite height with lean, athletic build. Adequate frame with space to continue adding bulk. Throws with consistent accuracy. Thrives in the short-to-intermediate passing game with plus velocity when driving the ball up the seams and over the middle of the field. Light on his feet in the pocket and sets quickly. Comfortable taking what the defense gives but also has proven big-play ability as a passer and now and then as a runner. Good functional athlete for the QB position who has shown encouraging top-end straight-line speed on scrambles and designed runs. Athleticism lacks verified context, but plenty good to regularly buy time with his legs. Throws well on the run and is dangerous in off-schedule situations. Velocity and downfield arm strength looked better as a senior. Capable of varying arm angles as needed. Loose, live arm accompanies wind-up release that needs to tighten and quicken to maximize passing ceiling. Occasionally vulnerable to batted balls at the line of scrimmage because of wind-up motion. Has dominated small-school ball but faces major jump in competition. Legitimate Power 5-caliber quarterback prospect who's a natural gunslinger type with a potentially high ceiling. Could become multi-year high-major starter in college with long-term NFL Draft potential.
