Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about NATE STANLEY: Iowa, 6036 235 4.84. Three-year starter, Menomonie, WI. Voted a permanent team captain three years in a row. Academic All Big 10 three straight years as well as receiving the Big 10 Conference Sportsmanship Award. Finished second in Iowa history with 8302 passing yards and 68 touchdowns. Plays in a pro style offensive scheme that majors in running the ball as well as throwing play action passes. Stanley is a cerebral and quiet leader who has the ability to manage the team from start to finish. His accuracy is better if he stays in the pocket after play action fakes, turns and hits his target. More mechanical and structured than a natural passer. Has fringe athletic ability and downfield arm strength. A streaky passer who knocked Ohio State out of the playoffs after throwing five touchdown passes and beating Indiana with six well-timed touchdown passes to a variety of receivers. He also has 10 career games where he passed for three or more scores. Was 3-0 in bowl wins. More deliberate than quick twitch. Runs a quarterback sneak like he’s a bulldozer moving the pile. Has never thrown for over 60% in any season. Accuracy is inconsistent from game to game and at times pass to pass. Question decisions at times throwing into coverage and staring down his receivers. Ball placement to his three levels of receivers is inconsistent. Threw for 52 touchdown passes in 2017 and 2018 with two first round tight ends in TJ Hockenson (Detroit) and Noah Fant (Denver). A developmental quarterback. 2019 stats: 237/399, 2951 yds, 59.4%, 16 TD, 7 INT, 7 yds rushing, 1 TD, 131.25 QB rating. Ball velocity 54 mph. OSR:10/15. Sixth/seventh round. (A-32 5/8, H-10, SS-4.48, VJ-28.5).
