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.

05/13/2015 - Everett Golson has met with Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher about the possibility of the former Notre Dame quarterback transferring to the Seminoles. Fisher said Tuesday at the Atlantic Coast Conference spring meetings that Golson visited Florida State's Tallahassee campus on Monday. "We're negotiating," Fisher said about Golson. "He's a great young man. I really enjoyed getting to know him. Good player. Played really good against us." Golson is apparently on Florida tour this week. SI.com reported Golson was in Gainesville, Florida, on Tuesday meeting with Gators coach Jim McElwain.

Florida State is looking for a replacement for Jameis Winston, who was the first overall pick in the NFL draft last month. Sean Maguire, who started one game last season as Winston's backup, left spring practice as the Seminoles top quarterback. Maguire is by far the most experienced quarterback on Florida State's roster, but is not nearly as accomplished as Golson. Fisher said he would not promise playing time to any player and that it was up to Golson if he wanted to join the Seminoles. "It's an open competition and I communicate with everybody," Fisher said of Florida State's quarterback situation. "We've got to do what gives us the best chance to be successful." - AP Sports
