Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Good (not elite) arm strength and can easily make all the NFL throws with effortless deep passes.
  • Possesses a strong right arm and is capable of making every NFL throw easily. Can drive the deep out to the sideline from the opposite hash and has no problem threading the needle between closing defenders. Easily zips to all areas of the field, demonstrating very good touch on underneath routes to running backs and receivers, as well as down the sideline on deep passes.
  • 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.
  • Ball placement is a strength. Hartman has the natural instincts to make plays when forced to improvise.
  • Good accuracy overall, including excellent accuracy on short timing routes to backs and receivers, placing the ball slightly in front to lead receivers to potential yardage after the catch.
  • Good zip and ball placement on the quick slant. Good touch down the seam and on post-corner, flag routes to attack the defense vertically and horizontally.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Hartman has to clean up his throwing motion when he’s on the move. Hartman was often too quick to pull the ball down and take off, and Hartman seemed to have trouble sifting through moving parts in the middle of the field.
  • Too often fails to give receivers a chance to make a play after the catch. High completion percentage padded by many quick screens.
  • He’s clearly more effective when on the move, and many of his reads were half-field.
Scouting Report: Summary
Has impressed in early action. Against Clemson, this was particularly apparent where he put up 337 yds and 6 TDs. If he keeps it up - he will be looked at as a genuine pro starter.
