Has a chance to be an eventual starter with developmental time as long as he stays healthy. Plays best in the pocket. Elevated his game in 2013 under the tutelage of new coordinator Cam Cameron. Averaged 10.4 yards per completion. Played with two dynamic receivers who gave him confidence to stay in the pocket. Pushes the ball down the field. A vertical pro style passer who plays in an aggressive pass offense. Steps into his passes and drives the ball down the field. Very accurate when he has a clean pocket. Keeps his eyes down the field while standing tall in the pocket. Has the touch to throw over the top of the linebackers and in front of the safeties. Involves all the receivers in the offense. Has an injury history. Tore his ACL versus Arkansas 11/30/13. Fringe mobility and average athletic ability. Needs to improve his play fakes. 2013 stats: 192/296, 3082 passing yds, 64.9%, 22 TD, 8 INT. Did not throw at Combine. Medical exclusion, left knee. Third/fourth round.
