Tyler Last name is pronounced Shuck.Born September 28,1999 Has 4 siblings Son of Dana and Glenn Shough. Parents met at Arizona State university mother has a degree in education from Northern Arizona. His father is now a retired police officer and is now teaching criminal justices. Mother’s side of the family is from Springfield Oregon a short drive near Eugene. Tyler’s Grandfather help with the construction of Autzen Stadium. Mom is a Breast Cancer survivor.

Tyler did start until he was a Jr in high school and had very pedestrian numbers. His head to head match up vs current Iowa State QB Brock Purdy brought him to the spotlight. Originally committed to North Carolina before changing his mind and head to Eugene after a visit. Shough was a 4 star recruit by 24/7 sports it was his physical tools that attracted major media recruiting websites and college Coaches to him. His own coach during high school was under fire for hazing incidents in 2018.

Once he arrived to Oregon he didn’t get much playing time early. Appeared in 8 snaps before being redshirted. Setting behind Justin Herbert in 2019 he took more snaps but never got enough tape to determine if he would solidify his job once Justin Herbert left. He battled in camp last fall with former Boston College Starting Quarterback Anthony Brown for the starting job. Tyler won the job in 2020 but was never fully trusted limiting both the playbook and spot duties Towards the end of the season. Just never truly jelling with new offensive Coordinator Joe Moorhead. After Anthony Brown was made the starter Tyler decided to take his talents to Lubbock Texas to play for Texas Tech Matt Wells. Who coached Jordan Love and is hoping for similar success. Being that he graduated already making him eligible for postseason all star games. Still has two years of eligibility might have to capitalize on it.

Personality: Tyler is very outgoing. very accountable and reliable good communication skills. Has gone through a lot of adversity and handled it well. Don’t show negative emotions in public.

Background Grade: 34/45

Red Flags: Never Dominated at any point from high school to college still waiting for his breakout year. Didn’t click with new Coaching staff lost his job.


Scheme and Usage: At Oregon used a lot of play-action 62/ 165 drop-back. The screen where a huge part of the scheme as well as Run pass option 37/165 dropbacks were screens. Oregon had him in 34 designed runs during his time there. The offense was a heavy zone Run offense with many check-down options. His passing game isn’t an ideal projection to an NFL Passing game.

Tyler Shough Highlights from 2020

Decision making/Processing:

Doesn’t yet understand coverages. Everything has to be clear for him. Try to fit balls in short zones with touch if he doesn’t get out of this habit he is going to consistently throw Interceptions.  4/25

Arm Talent:

Plenty of zip on his throw. Hasn’t learned to properly distribute his weight with causes him to lose strength on his throw. Does throw an outstanding 9 Ball gets a lot of air on it allowing WR to catch up.My Just lack the power to squeeze into extremely tight windows. 11/17

Pocket Movement:

Feet are just everywhere. Has no pocket feel just throws where ever he can. Never steps up into the pocket but also never sinks So sacks are at minimal loss. 4/10


Struggles with even general accuracy at this point due to his poor mechanics. Is better in the intermediate to short game when the pocket is clean. Balls are not put in the proper place for WR to make yards after the catch. 10/33


Doesn’t transfer weight from hips sometimes and lets his front foot be his base when on the move causing a loss in velocity. Takes unnecessary steps needs to find a base. Does moves quickly when he does drop back it’s just often in the wrong place this can be easily cleaned up.6/11

Ability to win inside the structure:

Makes a Quick first read with his offense is based on. When he is forced off his first read has a tendency to lose track of defenders. Hasn’t learned to truly read coverages but just reads defenders. He does have an understanding of zone read and you can implement his legs into your offense. When Kept Clean Threw 11 TDs and 5 Ints Completing 70% of his passes. 9/20

Ability to win outside of structure:

Can take off when his first read is taken away. But seems to pop rely on legs anytime pressure is put in front of his face. Knows when to give up at least know when and how to slide. When under pressure he threw 2 Tds and 1 int Completing 40%. 5/10

Throwing mechanics:

The high arcing release hasn’t developed a consistent throwing release. Slow-release on top of his drop back. Holds the ball correctly and keeps it secure. 8/9
