Overview

Positives: Well-built athlete with a tall, basketball player's style frame. … Has a very strong throwing arm and quick feet to avoid pressure, but is better suited throwing out of the pocket. … Does a nice job of carrying out fakes and has a quick, high release with the strength to get the ball downfield. … Is developing good toughness in the pocket and no longer looks for a rush lane or to hold on to the ball too long when his primary targets are covered. … In 2004, Campbell had very good success with the deep outs, fades and posts. … Shows better timing and the ability to give his receivers a chance to compete for the ball than he did in the past. … Does a good job maneuvering when forced out of the pocket, but is better standing in the pocket than on the roll out, as he is more effective when he has a chance to time his throws. … His natural athletic skills are what makes him an intriguing prospect, but understand that this is a player that has had to digest four different offensive systems during his four years in college. … Made excellent progress in most areas of his game over the last year. … Used to lock on to his main target too much, but coach Al Borges showed him that with patience, he does a much better job of scanning the field or taking hits stepping up in the pocket.

Negatives:

Sometimes loses accuracy and velocity throwing on the move, as he does not set his feet properly to put all of his force behind those tosses. … Still, for a player of his size, he shows good mobility. … When he rolls out of the pocket, he will sometimes hold the ball low and exposed, resulting in costly fumbles. … Still needs to show better judgement, but has the power behind his throws to thread the ball in a crowd. … His touch on his long ball has improved quite a bit, but he still needs to work on his underneath throws. … Still has not fully grasped the mental aspect of calling his own game yet, and will need to have the plays called for him until he can prove that he can handle play-calling on his own. … Does well in school (3.0 grade point average). His first Wonderlic test score (14) was lower than you like from a player at the quarterback position, but he then scored a much-improved 28 at the Combine in February. … Needs to work on some fundamentals, especially his feet in his pass set, but he has the quickness to get back from center. … Made more sound decisions in 2004 than he did in the past, but he still must improve in reading coverages.
