Ourlads' Profile:

2021 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about IAN BOOK: Notre Dame, 6002 210 4.65. Three-year starter, El Dorado Hills, CA. Earned third-team All ACC honors in 2020. He left the storied Notre Dame program as the all-time leader in quarterback wins with 35. The two-time team captain is a dream come true for quarterback coaches when it comes to work ethic and leadership. His talent and overall upside won’t turn a lot of heads, but his intangibles will. An ideal fit for a backup role because of what he can offer to the quarterback room in meetings and practice. He may be able to stick as a sought-after backup for a long time in this league. Athletic and hard-nosed competitor who leads by example. Quick feet aid him as a passer and runner. Can twist and turn his hips with smoothness and ease to properly line up to his intended target. Gets the ball out fast because of superb ball handling. Will find creases to escape the pocket. Can make himself small and slippery and will make things happen in space. A courageous leader who has seen a lot of big moments. Good layer-thrower that shows good touch. Learned to protect the ball more and more over his career. Short with a somewhat slight frame. Will go down on initial contact too often, plays light. Inconsistent release when he is off schedule. Lacks a consistent tight spiral. Struggled to complete balls downfield or outside the numbers. 2020 stats: 228/353, 2830 yds, 64.6%, 15 TD, 3 INT, 485 yds rushing, 9 TD, 144.25 QB rating. Seventh round/PFA. (A-31 1/4, H-9 7/8, SS-4.20, VJ-32.5).
