Projection 2 51
Strengths: Good-sized passer with a strong arm and quick release. A decent athlete with the ability to escape the rush and take off for positive yardage. Has scaled back his interception rate. Was a highly regarded recruit entering college.

Weaknesses: Accuracy is hit and miss on both short passes and deep balls. Doesn't exhibit a great grasp of his offense. Can stare down guys leading to tipped balls and interceptions. Makes bad choice with the ball. Takes too many sacks as he doesn't anticipate pressure well and doesn't get the ball out consistently quick enough. Has not been a big play guy.
