Strengths: Ideal size. Very good athlete. Strong arm. Excellent rolling out of the pocket. Long strider. Clean over the top delivery. Poise under pressure is good. Stands tall in the pocket. Tough to bring down. Good character. Smart kid, coached up under legendary QB Guru David Cutcliffe. Team Captain.
Weaknesses: Could gain a little weight and get stronger. Took majority of snaps out of shotgun. Experience going through multiple progressions isn’t there yet. Ball placement came and went at times, specifically throwing to his right. Sailed the deep ball at times. Needs to learn to slide in the NFL, takes way too many hits.
Overview: Prototype QB with the size and athleticism teams desire in todays game. His tools suggest he can be a franchise guy. Would be suited best in a system with good QB coaches and a veteran QB to learn. His best football is ahead of him.
