Gunner Kiel | QB | Cincinnati | 6’4″ 208 lbs.

Games Watched: Cincinnati vs. Ohio State, Cincinnati vs. Virginia Tech

*All games watched courtesy of Draft Breakdown
Strengths:
-Above average arm strength
-Solid accuracy in and out of pocket on short to intermediate throws
-Sneaky athleticism, can scamper for the occasional first
-Good size, just needs to add 10-12 pounds
-Textbook mechanics, quick release
-Surprisingly good footwork for taking snaps from the gun
-Confidence to make throws all over the field

Weaknesses:
-Like most of the 2016 QBs, he’ll have to face an adjustment after playing in the Air Raid offense
-Deep accuracy isn’t really bad, but leaves something to be desired
-Needs to be more careful with the football at times
