Accolades:

Injuries: Missed 3 games in 2016 with an injury. Missed 3 games in 2017 with an injury.

History: Three-star recruit from Lake Oswego, Or. Three-year Captain at Lakeridge. He was a 2014 second-team All-State selection. Also played basketball, baseball, and competed in track & field.

Strengths:  Excellent height and weight. Big, strong kid, with some guns. Very good athlete who can extend plays with his legs. Tough to bring down. Has a quick release and good timing and anticipation on quick passes. Puts good touch on his throws. Experience and great leader. Tough kid.

Weaknesses:  Too often pulls it down and takes off. Wasn’t asked to work through his progressions. Doesn’t have the ability to drive the ball with velocity teams covet. Gets the jitters in the pocket. Has missed a couple games with injuries and has as more career carries than some running backs that come out. Ran out of a spread system.

Overview: Dungey operated in a QB friendly offense at Syracuse, that asked him to make a lot of plays with his legs. Rarely was he tasked with making multiple reads. He is big and strong and a good athlete. With the direction it seems the NFL is going, he may be able to catch on as a project QB, but a position change (TE/H-Back) might help his career longevity.
