Scouting Report
Can really zip the ball in short range, and is a great fit in general for a West Coast-style passing game. A good athlete with good height, and runs fairly well. Works pretty hard and is a smart player who puts in his time in the film room. Has battled to improve and adjust at the NFL level. Somewhat injury-prone. Doesn't have an elite arm, and has small hands. More book smart than field smart: makes decisions late and misreads coverages at times. Has had some run-ins with his coaches. Must show he can be a clutch playmaker.
Long Range Potential: Solid game-managing starter at QB.
