Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Golson doesn't receive much attention as an NFL prospect, but his positive play has not gone unnoticed by scouts. NFL arm strength with the mobility to create with his legs.

WEAKNESSES: Undersized at 6-feet, 200 pounds, leading to batted balls at the line of scrimmage that too often result in turnovers. Impossible to ignore the lack of consistency and his tendency to turn the ball over. Careless with the ball when running and makes too many poor decisions passing downfield.

The Notre Dame passer has impressive arm talent and intriguing intangibles, but if Golson isn't able to rectify the miscues, it's tough to believe he can fix the problem in the NFL.

05/26/2015 - Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher sees competition, not a budding quarterback controversy, with the addition of Everett Golson. The former two-year starter for Notre Dame is transferring to the Seminoles for his final season. Fisher insisted he was comfortable with the mostly inexperienced quarterbacks on Florida State's roster coming out of spring practice, but the opportunity to bring in a player who had performed on big stages and helped his team reach the national championship game was just too good to pass up. "Has great arm talent, has great feet, has been a winner," Fisher said of Golson. "You have that guy, then once you meet him and have the personality he does, the background in ball he does and knowledge. I think that only enhances your team and your chances for the other players in your organization to win. It makes too much sense to not bring him on board."

Golson will have to beat out Sean Maguire, a junior who started one game as Jameis Winston's backup last season and was the No. 1 quarterback for Florida State coming out of spring practice. Fisher said he is not worried about the competition being potentially divisive to his team. "Controversy and competition is two different things. It's competition," he said. "And players on the team, when a guy is a competitor and he does well - whether it's Sean, it's Everett, it's De'Andre (Johnson), it's J.J. (Consentino), it's Deondre Francois - whoever is on our team, they'll follow the guys who play the best, respond the best and lead them the best." - AP Sports
