Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: He has a lot of positive throws out there along with size, mobility and resilient toughness to rally the troops. Has more than enough arm strength to make every throw, displaying excellent timing within Baylor's pass-happy, shotgun offense.

When he gets in a rhythm, Petty is highly efficient passing downfield, showing touch, timing and placement, especially when peppering zone coverage with quick throws underneath. Has shown improvement with functional mobility to extend plays outside of the pocket and hit targets downfield for big plays vertically.

WEAKNESSES: Often predetermines his reads and locks in to his primary target, struggling to consistently diagnose the defense to work through his progressions. He is always in shotgun formation and isn't asked to move his feet unless he has to and once he's pressured, Petty is out of his element, struggling to reset his base or eyes.

Petty tests a lot of vertical throws with a lot of bucket tosses, but he doesn't throw for a high percentage downfield and often throws up passes that can be best categorized as 50-50 balls.

NFL teams are already weary about quarterbacks from spread offenses, and some of Petty's 2014 game tape won't help his draft stock.

COMPARES TO: Brandon Weeden, Cowboys -- Petty is reminiscent of a younger, more athletic version of Weeden, coming from a spread offense that relies on a lot of quick, one-read plays that make it easy to identify single match-ups.

Player Overview

In a weak crop of senior quarterback prospects, Petty was widely believed to be the top senior at the position, but his performance in multiple games has been discouraging to see and sum up several of his issues as he transitions to the next level. He did enjoy an outstanding performance in an Oct. 8 victory at Oklahoma against an aggressive, fast defense.

Player News
01/22/2015 - 2015 Senior Bowl, Tuesday: Tuesday was a mixed bag from Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty, who needs a positive week to prove he is the top senior quarterback in this draft class. For a player inexperienced in a pro-style system, he did a nice job taking snaps under center and did an adequate job with his footwork in his drops. However, Petty's accuracy and timing were off, something that could be the result of undeveloped chemistry between him and his targets. Nonetheless, he needs to show consistent improvement each day in practice. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
