Scouting Report: Strengths
- Pyne is enough of a threat as a runner to earn respect from back-side defenders at the next level, opening opportunities for running backs.
- Physically, Pyne is a natural athlete who plays with the balance and light feet to float in the pocket.
- Picks up yards with his legs when needed.
- Ball placement is a strength. Pyne has the natural instincts to make plays when forced to improvise.
- Generally accurate on intermediate and short throws; flashes anticipation and placement on intermediate outs and the ability to lead receivers on deeper throws.
- Possesses an NFL arm. Gets the ball from one hash to the opposite sideline in a hurry. Has the zip to hit tight windows on short and intermediate throws.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- 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.
- Pyne has to clean up his throwing motion when he’s on the move. He was often too quick to pull the ball down and take off, and Pyne seemed to have trouble sifting through moving parts in the middle of the field.
- Pyne will have to prove he can handle an expanded, multi-progression NFL offense.
