Strengths

Prototype size and sturdy build. Throws with exceptional touch. Extremely accurate to all levels of the field. Great overall ball placement. Understands coverage and how to throw guys away from it. Excellent placement/anticipation on perimeter throws low and away from coverage. Keeps a wide base and stands tall in the pocket. Drops the deep ball in the bucket. Hits receivers in stride outside the numbers. Gives his receivers a chance to win in one-on-one coverage. Throws the ball up where his target can make a play on it. Impressive accuracy down the seams and between the numbers. Very effective reading coverage and executing concepts on one side of the field. Recognizes checkdowns early and will hit them to allow run after the catch. Can slide or move to buy time in the pocket. Good accuracy when throwing off platform. Decent overall mobility. Shows strength and toughness inside on designed runs. Loyal and competitive (stayed at hometown high school despite not starting final three seasons; stayed at Florida until he earned the starting job as a redshirt junior).

 

Weaknesses

Average arm strength and velocity. Too many poor decisions throwing into coverage in the short/intermediate areas. Fades away with pressure in his face. Can be too deliberate overall. Limited ability as an out-of-structure playmaker. Really struggled without top weapons in the 2021 Cotton Bowl.

Conclusion

Overall, Trask is an accurate pocket passer with impressive ball placement, touch, and intangibles. At worst, he should be an ideal backup quarterback that can keep things moving if forced into action, and Trask has definite potential as a future starter with development in the right situation.

People who did not watch a lot of Gator games don’t realize that Trask had great weapons but a pretty terrible O line. His RT was a turnstile and the team had a bad running game because the line couldn’t open holes. He was asked to go out and throw into 8 man coverage with a 3 man front getting pressure and he still picked apart SEC defenses.

He’s not Burrow like was argued by some during the year, but he’ll be a value.
