Strengths Weaknesses

Waters lacks ideal height with average-at-best build, but is a tough competitor who stays focused in clutch situations. He operates well in the Wildcats' shotgun, zone-read offense, showing quick feet in his drops with the pocket presence to recognize pressures and get the ball out quickly.

Waters is athletic with vision as a ballcarrier, evading pressure and also stepping up in the pocket to deliver with a solid base. He doesn't always see all 11 defenders and tends to lock onto targets, leading to mistakes and turnovers.

Similar to Connor Shaw a year ago, Waters' skill-set doesn't scream NFL quarterback, but with a productive and winning senior season, he will earn a shot to make a pro roster.

--Dane Brugler (6/4/14)

Player Overview

A year ago at this time, Waters was a JUCO transfer new to the Kansas State program and considered a wildcard competing for the starting quarterback job. But he quickly proved his ability and is the unquestioned starter entering the 2014 season, leading former starter Daniel Sams to transfer to McNeese State.
