Scouting Report
Assets: Takes control of the game and is fearless on all his passes. An exceptional touch passer with great timing and accuracy on short throws. A very good pocket presence who moves and slides well. A clutch leader and a winner.
Flaws: Undersized for an NFL quarterback, and while nimble he's not a top scrambler. Will sometimes force balls downfield and overthrow his targets. Can be somewhat streaky.
Career Potential: Future Hall-of-Fame quarterback.
