Scouting Report
Assets: Excellent size and stature. Very good arm and puts a lot of mustard on the ball. Plays like a superstar when in the zone. Runs well enough to escape danger.
Flaws: Injury-prone. Runs hot and cold and mistakes come in bunches. Sometimes throws behind receivers or rifles balls that require a soft touch. Will make some bad decisions.
Career Potential: Streaky, aging veteran backup QB.
