Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Sticks throws into tight windows over the middle, throwing to spot on a slant or between zone defenders before the receiver is open.
  • Has elite size for the position - stands 6-6 and weighs 230lbs and has the arm strength to match
  • Stats may misrepresent his quality of play due to sub-par talent around him
  • Highly skilled in executing the west coast system - will likely transition into a pro offense with ease
  • Has great footwork and usually deals well with pressure
  • Flashes good accuracy to all levels of the field and has the arm strength to make every requisite NFL throw.
  • Big athlete with good height and stands tall in the pocket to survey. the field. Uses good technique, squaring his shoulders to the target and stepping into his throws.
  • Sprays the ball anywhere on the field, especially when given a pocket from which to deliver. Will step up into the pocket while looking downfield, reset his feet and deliver.
  • Has surprising speed as a runner for such a big man - has some escapability
  • Excellent height to see over the defense.
  • 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.
  • Possesses an NFL arm. Gets the ball from one hash to the opposite sideline in a hurry
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • 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 when under pressure with streaky ball placement downfield as he tries to thread the needle too much.
  • Had only an average season in 2021 when Stanford went just 3-9, so it's difficult to tell how much of this is down to his supporting cast. 2022 will be critical for his evauation
  • Doesn't decipher information as quickly as you would like, but does see the entire field and understands coverage.
Scouting Report: Summary
Tanner McKee is an intriguing pro prospect due to his obvious tangibles - he looks the part possessing prototypical drop-back passer qualities, is a quick decision-maker, and has excellent accuracy, especially on intermediate and long routes. He however really struggles last year an awful Cardinals team went 3-9. It will be good to see he performs once given better receivers to throw to. If he can put up better numbers this year expect his elevation to the first round set in stone.
