Ourlads' Profile:

2012 Guide: What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about KIRK COUSINS: Michigan State, 6025 214 4.93. Three-year starter and three time captain. Most wins as a quarterback in Michigan State history. Played in a pro style offense and has experience in both the shotgun and under center. Displays good accuracy on short and medium passes with good ball placement for the receiver to catch the ball. Intangibles are off the charts. No wasted motion. Keeps the ball up and is always ready to throw. Makes quick decisions and is disciplined with the football. Has a high release point. Reliable and consistent in his play. Manages the game with confidence and poise. Stays in the pocket. Steps up and runs if coverage warrants escape. Keeps his eyes down the field and goes through his progressions. Quick feet to the set-up point and gets the ball out quickly. Skilled running the hurry-hurry two minute offense. Finds and attacks the voids in the secondary. Can throw accurately with pressure in his face. A gym rat who is very prepared and focused on his job. A tough competitor who is very good, but not great at all quarterback critical factors and position specifics. A backup type who has been durable and productive with his limitations. 2011 stats: 267/419, 3316 passing yds, 63.7%, 25 TDs, 10 INTs. Ball velocity 59 mph. OSR:13/15. Second/third round. (A-31 3/4, H-9 7/8, SS-4.50, VJ-28.5).
