Strengths

  • Athletic quarterback who has flown under the radar at Central Michigan

  • Spread QB who will need to learn to take snaps from center. 
  • Needs to improve his footwork
  • Must prove he can make reads in a pro style offense
  • Not a true pocket passer - May not fit all schemes
  • Needs to have strong workouts to answer his skeptics - strong showing at the Senior Bowl was a good start
