Ourlads' Profile:

2021 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about SAM EHLINGER: Texas, 6014 222 4.84. Four-year starter, Austin, TX. Left school with over 11,000 passing yards and 1,500 rushing yards, something that has been done just two other times in FBS history. He earned Honorable Mention All- Big 12 twice before earning second-team honors in 2020. He is a statistical compiler who lacks a true upside at the next level. Simply does not have the arm talent or athleticism to jump off the screen. He is, however, a solid option to have on the depth chart because of his top-notch intangibles and grit. Can make things happen with his legs, he is tough, and won a lot of games. He won’t be a starter in the NFL, but he can hang as a third stringer. Thick, running back type frame that can handle a beating. Will create with his legs and consistently fall forward. Quick into short areas with a solid forward lean and pad level. Maintains solid balance upon contact. Will be reliable along the short and intermediate route tree. Takes what the defense gives him. Won’t hang onto the ball too long, gets it out fast and assertively. Top notch intangibles and reputation among coaches and teammates. Lacks the desirables when it comes to size and arm talent. Plays small and there are certain throws he simply cannot make. Lacks looseness in his frame. A lot of what he does seems labored. Will give away his intentions too soon. Locks onto receivers and struggles to look defenders off. 2020 stats: 194/322, 2566 yds, 60.2%, 26 TD, 5 INT, 377 yds rushing, 8 TD, 150.73 QB rating. Seventh round/PFA. (A-30, H-9 3/4, SS-4.44, VJ-36.5).
