Scouting Report
Assets: Confident and gutsy passing the football, with a compact, quick release. Goes through his progressions quickly and shows nice touch in getting the ball to his receivers. Pretty mobile in the pocket and can throw on the run. Has good leadership qualities and solid size for the position.
Flaws: Doesn't flash top-tier arm strength and will wobble passes on deeper throws. Sometimes takes a few too many risks with his targetting and doesn't back it up by zipping his passes. Must show he can adjust his approach and technique to the NFL game.
Career Potential: Savvy, quick-throwing QB with starter tools.
