Ourlads' Profile:

2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about CARSON WENTZ: North Dakota State, 6052 237 4.70. Two-year starter from Bismarck, ND. Suffered a broken bone in his throwing wrist versus South Dakota in October and missed eight games. He returned for the national championship game versus Jacksonville State and didn’t miss a beat. Was the NCAA Division I championship game’s Most Outstanding Player in 2015 and 2016. In addition, he was a first team Academic All-America. Was on the Missouri Valley Conference honor roll for four straight years. Team captain in 2014 and 2015. Went 20-3 as a starter. Had one of the strongest arms at the Combine where he graded out as the top quarterback athletically. Can throw the deep 18-yard comeback from the opposite hash mark. He has a quick and deliberate delivery, keeping his eyes focused down the field. Has a high release point and a quick brain synapse where he sees the open receiver and hits them suddenly with no delay. Stands tall in the pocket. Steps into his throws, sliding up into the protection. Hangs in the pocket and lets the play develop. Can gun the ball into the vertical seams with velocity or touch. A clutch passer, Wentz can anticipate and hit a receiver on the move across the middle of the formation. He also knows how to put air under the ball and throw to a spot on fade routes. Has a smooth and compact delivery for a tall quarterback. His lower body is in unison with his upper body. He doesn’t pick up his feet getting to the throwing point but rather slides across the top of the grass, sticks his back foot in the ground and drives the ball down the field. Plays both under center in a pro-I formation that features a zone running game and play action passes, or takes snaps out of the shotgun. Plays with good athletic ability and balance. Throws the ball well on the run when needed to roll out away from center or bootleg away from the action. Consistently accurate on short and medium passes. Good feel and touch on the linebacker control passes. Uses the pump fake effectively on deep routes. A very efficient third down passer. Throws the three level routes on bootlegs and roll outs with accuracy. As a student of the game, Wentz is decisive and poised under pressure. Athletic and mobile when he pulls the ball down to run. Not easily flushed. Has the ability to avoid the rush. An instinctive game manager who calls the protections and makes the on-the-field adjustments. A respected leader who is football intelligent. 2015 stats: 130/208, 1651 yds, 62.5%, 17 TD, 4 INT, 294 yds rushing, 6 TD. Career stats: 392/ 612, 5115 yds, 64%, 45 TD, 14 INT, 129.9 QB rating. Ball velocity 57 mph. OSR:1/18. First round. (A-32 3/8, H-10, SS-4.15, VJ-30.5).
