DRAFT HISTORY

DRAFTSITE SCOUTING REPORT

  • Tough, scrappy, productive playmaker and younger brother of a former first overall pick. Shows great ball placement to all levels. Excellent accuracy on the deep ball; consistently and effectively utilizes his receivers' back shoulder. Quick and effortless style of delivery; can throw from different release angles. Strong arm, though it may not be elite downfield. Does, however, throw with nice zip when he steps into passes. Is very confident in his own arm talent. Decent athleticism with quick feet. Does nice job stepping up in the pocket and passing effectively when he has a chance. Tough and showed ample poise; had to deal with very uneven pass protection. Doesn't force the ball too much but can get confident attacking tight windows downfield. Would like to see him go through his progressions, find targets and get the ball out faster; may not be entirely his fault though. Threw too often off his back foot. Needs to be more disciplined in his footwork; nonetheless, gets away with it and doesn't miss badly accuracy-wise. Lack of great size may make it difficult to be consistently effective with an unclean pocket. --Shasky Clarke--
