Scouting Report
Smart, mature, and instinctive behind center. A leader who's tough and dedicated. Possesses a good 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. Not a power thrower. 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 and won't make many plays with his feet.
Long Range Potential: Pro Bowl quarterback.
