Power Statement

Dual-threat QB that can win in a spread offense with lots of Zone reads, and PA to set up deep shots. Has good ability to use his legs in and out of the pocket, while also having a strong arm to attack downfield. Should not be trusted to fit the ball into the teeth of the defense due to a lack of touch and adequate ability to layer his throws.
