Scouting Report
Assets: A very intelligent game manager who shows impressive playmaking ability and toughness. Possesses good field vision, and can zip it almost anywhere in the open field. Adjusts well to adversity in-game, and possesses an underrated arm. Has worked hard to become a starter.
Flaws: He's not very mobile and won win any games with his feet. While he has done a nice job of learning to limit interceptions, he still fumbles the ball too much when under pressure (and his lack of scrambling ability doesn't help). A bit of a late bloomer who must keep proving doubters wrong.
Career Potential: Underrated starting quarterback with star tools.
