Scouting Report
Very smart and cagey in the pocket, making excellent decisions with the football. Sees the play unfold, sets quickly, and shows very nice touch on almost all his throws. Leads receivers well and takes advantage of openings. A good game manager. Won't make plays with his feet. Does not bring ideal size for the NFL QB position and durability is a concern (especially consider his lack of mobility). Gets in trouble on deep throws, as he doesn't have a great arm and doesn't get great zip.
Long Range Potential: Instinctive passer with starter ability.
