Scouting Report
The mobile quarterback is more of a pocket passer who can make plays with his legs--rather than a true dual-threat quarterback. His field command, leadership skills and work ethic turned him into a college football star, and they help compensate for the fact that his arm strength and size are nothing special. He is smart and processes information quickly, which helps him make the fast reads needed to succeed in the NFL.
Long Range Potential: Solid quarterback.
