Scouting Report
Assets: A playmaker who can make things happen in a hurry. Possesses a big arm and very strong hands, helping him make all kinds of throws easily (from over-the top strikes to sidearm rockets). Has good mobility. Displays strong instincts and field vision, as well as confidence and cool.
Flaws: Injury-prone. Has a tendency to take a few too many risks downfield with his big arm rather than going for safer fundamental plays. Gets too inconsistent with his throwing motion and freelances too much, and will force the ball into traffic at times. Not much of a scrambler.
Career Potential: Streaky but top-tier starting quarterback.
