Scouting Report
Assets: A rare athlete for an NFL quarterback: possesses near-elite speed and mobility (and is a constant threat to break big plays with his feet), yet also has ideal size for the position. Makes a lot happen when plays break down. Also blessed with a strong arm and can hit deep targets with ease.
Flaws: Lacks consistency and is still unproven as a passer. Must learn how to check his progressions quicker to avoid sacks. Is far from a polished quarterback and needs to keep refining his technique, learn to read defenses better, and show he can succeed when defenses bottle up his scrambling.
Career Potential: Highly athletic yet inconsistent QB with star tools.
