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.

03/20/2015 - Golson has 'bought in 100 percent to competing' at Notre Dame...Rewind with us back to the first days of 2015, if you please -- not that Everett Golson would want you to. The then-junior Notre Dame quarterback had just wrapped up a disastrous, turnover-plagued end to the season that saw him benched in the middle of a blowout loss to USC and backup Malik Zaire pegged to start the Irish's bowl game vs. LSU. Then Zaire helped lead Notre Dame to an upset win over LSU. Then credible-seeming rumors surfaced that Golson had begun exploring a possible transfer. In short: in the early days of 2015, it was an open question whether Golson -- who's on track to graduate in May -- would even spend his final season of eligibility in South Bend. But those rumors have died down over the past three months, and Brian Kelly appeared to put them to bed entirely at the start of the Irish's spring practice Tuesday, saying Golson has "bought in 100 percent" at Notre Dame.

It's fair to point out that Kelly doesn't guarantee Golson will be playing for the Irish this fall, merely saying his rising senior quarterback is "committed" to doing so. This leaves the barest bit of wiggle room that Golson could slip behind Zaire in spring practice, change his mind after graduating, and play out the 2015 season elsewhere. But if Golson isn't already planning to go anywhere, it seems highly unlikely that would change any time before the start of the season, given that Kelly likewise seems highly unlikely to name a starter until fall camp -- or maybe not even until the Irish's first game. - Jerry Hinnen, CBSSports.com
