Scouting Report
Brings the overall raw tools to be an NFL star QB: ideal size for the position, top-tier athleticism, elite foot-speed, and great intangibles. Regularly makes big plays: a constant threat for big yardage on the run or with a deep pass. Does a great job of throwing on the run and getting out of trouble as a scrambler. Relies heavily on his excellent physical tools and must show he can be a more patient pocket passer. Rushes the action often, and will throw across his body or scramble into pressure. Needs a lot of work at game management and using the short pass, so he can move the chains efficiently in the NFL.
Long Range Potential: Super-athletic QB with raw star tools.
