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.

01/08/2015 - Brian Kelly on Everett Golson: 'I expect him to be back'...After losing his starting job to Malik Zaire for Notre Dame's bowl game against LSU, there's been speculation about whether or not Everett Golson will return to Notre Dame next season. He graduates in the spring and can transfer to another school without sitting out a season, and Golson has already been mentioned as a possibility at LSU since the end of the season. Whether or not Golson leaves Notre Dame for LSU or anywhere else remains to be seen, but his coach expects he'll be back in South Bend in 2015.

"I've talked to Everett," said Kelly during an appearance on SportsCenter. "Everett needs to come back and go through spring ball. He's ready to compete. And he will compete in the spring. He's going to graduate this spring, and that's going to allow him to keep his options open. "But I expect him to e back and competing for the starting position. Both of them [Golson and Zaire] will have an opportunity. I'd love to see both of them on the field for us; I think we can play them both. Everett's got a chance to win that starting position. I know he expects to be the starter in the fall, and he'll have that opportunity to do that."

The question, of course, is whether or not Golson will want to return to Notre Dame to compete for a starting gig if he has the chance to definitely be the starter some place else. That's why I'm not so convinced that LSU would be a logical landing spot for him, because he'd likely have to compete for the job in Baton Rouge as well. - Tom Fornelli, CBSSports.com
