Strengths

  • Athletic quarterback who has flown under the radar at Central Michigan
  • Excellent intangibles and a true competitor who maximizes his talent
  • Accurate passer who throws a very catchable ball
  • Displays poise in the pocket - Above average awareness 
  • More patient than he is given credit for.  Has good football intelligence
  • Passed for 3,000 yards and rushed for 1,000 yards in the same season in 2007
  • A passer who can run not a runner who can pass
  • Excellent mobility
  • Measured a legitimate 6'3 at the Senior Bowl alleviating height concerns
  • Good mechanics
  • Had a good week at the Senior Bowl - showed an ability to make drops and better than expected arm strength
        

Weaknesses

  • Arm strength is solid but far from a cannon
  • 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
