Ourlads' Profile:

2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JEFF DRISKEL: Louisiana Tech, 6040 234 4.48. One year starter at Tech from Oviedo, FL. Transfer from the University of Florida where he started 26 games from 2011-2014. Good size and arm strength to make all the NFL throws. Has above average movement when the pocket breaks down. Can avoid an open field tackler with his straight line speed. Well built for the quarterback position. A very good athlete who moves easily and smooth in his drop back from center. Has decent pocket awareness and understands his protection. Appears comfortable in the pocket. Knows where to step up when under pressure. Tough and gritty competitor. Was the Conference USA Newcomer of the Year. A tough kid who can take a hit. Plays in a quick strike spread offense. Throws a nice spiral with little wobble. Drives the ball down the field on slant patterns. Throws from a 3/4 arm slot platform. Demonstrates inconsistent throwing mechanics and accuracy. At the Senior Bowl there were times during the week he would grade out as a draftable top three quarterback and on other days a bottom three type free agent. Appears to lack pocket patience and consistent footwork. Doesn’t drive the ball over the middle of the field or from the opposite hash. Lacks quickness to escape the pocket when it breaks down. Has a slow windup and release of the football. Has had some problems with his passes being batted down at the line of scrimmage. A developmental project with size and measurables. 2015 stats: 281/450, 4033 yds, 62.4%, 27 TD, 8 INT, 323 yds rushing, 5 TD, 153.9 QB rating. Ball velocity 52 mph. OSR:2/ 18. Fifth/sixth round. (A-33, H-9 3/4, SS-4.25, VJ-32).
