Drafted: Pick 28 of the 6th round by New England
Positives: Well-proportioned athlete who knows how to manage an offense...Has a quick set-up, moving away from the center fluidly...Displays a high release point and even though he's more comfortable in the pocket, he shows good improvisation skills on the move...Touch passer with a good understanding of defensive coverage...Has good poise in the pocket, rarely forcing his throws...Shows solid timing and consistency on slants and fades, feathering the ball past the defenders so his receivers do not have to work to make the catch...Can vary the speed on his passes and will step up and make the completion when his pocket collapses...Scans the field quickly to spot his open target and has the body control to make defenders miss when on the move.
Negatives: Does not have the arm strength or consistency to throw deep...His lack of ideal velocity causes his balls to flutter and die when throwing from the opposite hash mark...Does not seem to throw across the body effectively, tending to go to a side-arm release on his deep throws...While he stands tall in the pocket, he does not have the lateral agility to escape when flushed out of the pocket or the quickness to gain much yardage past the line of scrimmage...Does not really drive the ball, as he puts too much air behind his long tosses...More of a short area type passer who is more comfortable operating from the shotgun rather than under center.
