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.

04/22/2015 - Notre Dame quarterback Everett Golson is going to let his play do the talking. Golson, who is scheduled to graduate in May with a degree in management-entrepreneurship, was scheduled to talk to the media on Friday for the first time since The Times-Picayune in January reported that Golson had reached out to LSU about transferring there less than a week after the Irish beat the Tigers in a bowl game. Golson responded at the time with a tweet: "Don't believe everything you hear." Notre Dame spokesman Michael Bertsch said Golson decided against talking with the media, saying he wants to focus on football and school. Bertsch said Golson is aware that some people will speculate about what his decision not to talk to the media means. When he receives his degree he is eligible to go to another school and play immediately.

Golson and Malik Zaire are in a competition for that starter's job. Coach Brian Kelly has said the competition will continue into August no matter what happens next week in the Blue-Gold game, the final spring football practice. He said he believes that's what is best for the team. "I think it's a healthy, competitive situation," Kelly said. The two divide their time evenly running with the first-team offense. Kelly said after practice on Wednesday that Golson was doing well with things he struggled with last season. "His feet were settled. He was calm. He was protecting the football," he said. He also said Zaire was doing well at throwing the ball accurately and on time. "They're both trying to get better and working to get better at the areas we've asked them to really focus on," he said. - AP Sports
