Scouting Report
Assets: Smart, mature, and instinctive behind center. A leader who's tough and dedicated. Possesses a fine arm with nice mechanics, and is a good touch passer. Brings ideal height for the NFL QB position. Fundamentally sound. Isn't afraid to go for the deep play regularly.
Flaws: Will force some passes and try to do too much, leading to occasional bouts of interceptions. Still somewhat streaky and must learn to adjust more quickly. Lacks top athleticism & won't make plays with his feet.
Career Potential: Above-average star quarterback.
