Draft Scouting Report

Rating: 67.42 (Role player)

Pro Comparison: C.J. Beathard

Strengths:

Small-statured, super-experienced QB with surprised athletic twitch. Will elude some defenders with his change-of-direction ability but isn't an improvisational master and is relatively slow for the position today. Shows good pocket movement skills but occasionally retreats/spins out of the way of pressure, thereby severely limiting the chances he completes a pass. Anticipatory throwing skill masks some of his arm-strength deficiencies. Needs to be in a particular, low-risk offense to be maximized at the next level.

Weaknesses:

Weaker arm. Doesn't throw with the pinpoint type accuracy a lesser-arm QB needs to be able to survive in the NFL. Doesn't read the field as well as expected given how many games he's started. Very conservative passer who barely takes risks, and it can be ugly when he attempts to stretch the field. Footwork is not sound, especially when moved off his base.

Accolades:

  • 2021: Fourth in FBS in completion percentage (71.7%)
  • 2020: First-team All-Big 12 (coaches)
Next Game
TBA
  • Jack Trice Stadium
