K.J. Costello QB Mississippi State Draft Profile

Strengths
  • Sees the field very well when the play breaks down and occasionally changes plays at the line.
  • 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.
  • Good (not elite) arm strength and can easily make all the NFL throws with effortless deep passes.
  • Sticks throws into tight windows over the middle, throwing to spot on slant or between zone defenders before the receiver is open.
  • Sprays the ball anywhere on the field, especially when given a pocket from which to deliver. Will step up into pocket while looking downfield, reset his feet and deliver.
  • Flashes good accuracy to all levels of the field and has the arm strength to make every requisite NFL throw.
  • Enough arm strength to drive the ball through tight windows up to 20 yards downfield. Spreads the ball around to multiple receivers.
  • Prototypical height for the position with the frame to easily add another 15 pounds of muscle mass without a significant loss in quickness.
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.
  • Too often fails to give receivers a chance to make a play after the catch. High completion percentage padded by many quick screens.
