Strengths

Pinpoint accuracy in quick-strike passing game. Very good vision and timing underneath. Focused on winning from the pocket despite athleticism. Release is odd but compact and quick. Throws with impressive zip/velocity. Stands tall and confident in the pocket. Shows a good understanding of concepts/progressions. Will test tight windows. Precise in contested coverage underneath. Hits targets in the chest to allow for yards after the catch. Thrives playing between the numbers. Keeps two hands on the ball in the pocket. Natural arm talent to make off-platform throws and on-the-move strikes. Throws a catchable ball. Will show some touch to get over coverage. Takes advantage of checkdowns out of the backfield. Great mobility and speed. Picks up chunk yards as a runner. Dangerous on speed options. Usually protects himself. High-character player and four-year starter.

 

Weaknesses

Needs to throw with better anticipation. Likes to see it open on deeper throws versus zone coverage. Inconsistent accuracy on intermediate throws outside the numbers. Lacks a consistent deep ball. Could do a better job feeling pressure and moving in the pocket. Ball security needs to be significantly improved as a runner.
