Scouting Report
A journeyman quarterback with wide-ranging skills mostly unrealized at the highest level, he was once ranked among the most dynamic and multitalented quarterback prospects in the game upon leaving college. Prolific in school, he possesses rare athleticism with running ability that was honed in track and field. Displays hair-trigger reactions in the pocket with the instincts and footwork to evade pressure. Is also a strong and accurate passer with plenty of gun for the deep ball. Is very much scheme-dependent and best suited for a spread offense with opportunities to run. His ultra-lean frame is susceptible to injury and his freelancing tendencies can often lead to turnovers (and bench time).
Long Range Potential: Athletic depth quarterback.
