Scouting Report
Assets: A playmaker who can make things happen in a hurry. Possesses a big arm and very strong hands, helping him make all kinds of throws easily (from over-the top strikes to sidearm rockets). Has good mobility. Displays strong instincts and field vision, as well as confidence and cool.
Flaws: Injury-prone. Has a tendency to take a few too many risks downfield with his big arm rather than going for safer fundamental plays. Will force the ball into traffic at times. Not much of a scrambler.
Career Potential: Elite quarterback with stellar tools.
