Draft Scouting Report:

Rating: 75.43 (Chance to start)

Pro Comparison: Mike White


Tanner McKee is a tall, lanky QB with a noticeably strong arm that rips the ball from a awkward release. He has a low elbow, whip-like delivery. His accuracy to all levels is very good. He's decisive and gets the ball out quickly. He has below-average athleticism by today's QB standards, but he's not completely immobile; he won't be any type of running threat in the NFL. He needs to improve his pocket management and quickness getting through his reads. He has awesome downfield touch. He can really crank up the velocity without having to step into the ball. His lower-half mechanics need work. His natural talent as a pure thrower is high end.
