Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Physically, Shough is a natural athlete who plays with the balance and light feet to float in the pocket.
  • He’s enough of a threat as a runner to make the read-option game effective.
  • 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.
  • Physically imposing and solidly built throughout his frame with good body strength. Strong arm with the ability to easily make all the throws. Above-average zip and velocity on his passes with strong stick throws.
  • 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 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
  • 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 Shough tries to thread the needle too much.
  • Shough gets sloppy with his mechanics on the move, losing accuracy as he relies too much on his arm.
  • He has to clean up his throwing motion when he’s on the move. Shough was often too quick to pull the ball down and take off, and he seemed to have trouble sifting through moving parts in the middle of the field.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
