Player Notes Pros

 

  • Big frame & strong arm, ideal size & strength for an NFL run & gun offense

  • Natural when it comes to pushing the ball down the field with distance and velocity

  • Fearless thrower who will challenge coverages and take the chances necessary to win

  • Has a good sense of pressure and knows how & when to escape a collapsing pocket

  • He's not afraid to use the full field thanks to high amount of spacing in college offense

  • Presence in the pre-snap for pressure looks is strong, he rarely gets caught off guard

  • Quick to drop the eyes & tuck ball, where his athleticism could become a huge threat

  • An absolute cannon for an arm with all the juice you could possibly hope for

  • Gets away with late delivery on sideline throws due to how much zip he gets on the ball

  • There's some Philip Rivers in his arm slot, wonky catapult style delivery but it works

  • Feet are fairly casual, gun slinger who improved his balance at the top of his drop

  • Get him on the edge & he'll surprise you with his speed, will do well with RPO concepts

Player Notes Cons

  • When things go off rhythm, the accuracy tends to drop off in an unreliable way

  • Throwing motion is long and inefficient, is not consistent with his release point

  • Often causes unpredictable accuracy issues when the timing is off with receivers

  • Leads receivers into hospital balls too often, needs to shade throws away from defenders

  • The speed of his progressions is a different story — he'll need to become much quicker
