Scouting Report
Assets: Polished and well-rounded as a passer. Smart, high-character, and a leader. Has a good arm and the ability to make deep throws, mid-range passes with touch, and short routes on the run. Pretty athletic, with good scrambling instincts and the speed to make plays with his feet.
Flaws: Struggles at times against aggressive and talented opponents and needs to ramp up his progressions and reads for the pro game. Will probably need to adjust to calling more run and option plays in the NFL. Averaged-sized for an NFL QB so durability may be an issue.
Career Potential: Talented, super-solid starting QB.
