Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 3 - Pick Number: 67 (HOU)
- Athletic quarterback who is a threat to leave the pocket and gain positive yardage at any time. Possesses very good vision balance, elusiveness and deceptive speed and power as a runner.
- Generally accurate on intermediate and short throws; flashes anticipation and placement on intermediate outs and the ability to lead receivers on deeper throws.
- Flashes good accuracy to all levels of the field and has the arm strength to make every requisite NFL throw.
- Good height and growing build to stand in the pocket.
- Sees the field very well when the play breaks down and occasionally changes plays at the line.
- Inconsistent downfield passer and puts too much air under his throws.
- Has struggled with his decision-making and needs to improve his pre-snap recognition skills to read defenses and see blitzes. Doesn't decipher information as quickly as you would like, but does see the entire field and understands coverage.
- Too often fails to give receivers a chance to make a play after the catch. High completion percentage padded by many quick screens.
- Needs to improve his touch at all levels and know when to gun it and when to take something off his throws. Accuracy is solid, but far from great with streaky ball placement downfield as he tries to thread the needle too much.
- Sails throws to either sideline; receivers make him look good with acrobatic catches. Back-foot throws are not accurate. Sometimes trusts his arm too much, trying to stick passes late in the play or when off-balance.
