Scouting Report
Assets: Brings a fairly unique and rare mix of near-elite tools to the QB position: ideal size, an effortless throwing motion with fantastic range and strength, and very good scrambling ability. Can make plays with his feet when things break down. Plays even bigger than his size thanks to an overhead passing style. Very athletic.
Flaws: Needs a lot of work on play-calling and picking the right option under pressure. Will too often either overthrow receivers or force things into traffic. Sack-prone. Seem indecisive at times, which may contribute to his accuracy and consistency issues.
Career Potential: Big-armed, highly athletic (but raw) QB with a little upside.
