Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about ANTHONY GORDON: Washington State, 6023 205 4.90. One-year starter, Pacifica, CA. Junior college transfer from City College of San Francisco. Second-team All Pac 12 in 2019. Set Cougar and Pac 12 single season records for passing touchdowns (48), passing yards (5579), total offense (5559), and completions (493). The success of “Minshew Mania” in the NFL will get scouts to pour through the tape of another Washington State signal-caller. What they will find is an unorthodox thrower of the football with a live arm that needs to entirely retool his passing mechanics without losing zip on his fastball. If he does not do something about his footwork and learning to throw with more than just his right arm, injury issues could become a factor. Will also need to invest time into studying and reading coverages before seeing the field at the next level. Live arm, quick release and good deep ball placement. Throws his receivers open. Can dissect a defense at each level (short, intermediate, deep). Manipulates the throwing angle. Will throw the ball away at times rather than forcing it. Athletic enough to get out of the pocket and gain yardage. Makes poor reads at times. Field vision is highly questionable with the obvious target covered. Doesn’t seem to see the underneath coverage. Holds the ball too long. Atypical footwork in the pocket that gets him into trouble with under throws. He comes to a complete stop often before he releases the ball while flat-footed. Clearly benefited from playing in Mike Leach’s Air Raid system in which receivers are often running free. Plays with his “emotions on his sleeves”. Developmental talent. 2019 stats: 493/ 687, 5579 yds, 71.8%, 48 TD, 16 INT, -20 yds rushing, 0 TD, 158.38 QB rating. Ball velocity 52 mph. Did position drills only-his choice. Fifth/sixth round. (A-31, H-9 3/4, SS-DNP, VJ-DNP).
