Scouting Report
Assets: Has a solid arm to complete all the throws. Possesses ideal height for the position and makes good reads. Mobile enough to stay out of trouble in the pocket. A quiet leader.
Flaws: Will occasionally rush things under pressure and make mistakes. Can be inconsistent at times. A late bloomer who has been overlooked most of his career. Could use a little more muscle mass for durability.
Career Potential: Decent veteran QB, when on his game.
