Troy runs a spread offense, much of the time with half-field reads, but we do see a lot of Silvers having to read the full field. He does a good job reading defenses and finding the open man. He does and can go through a progression, and for the most part his decision-making is very good. He has gained a lot of confidence in his skills as a passer over the past three years, and because of that he trusts his arm and will force some throws into tight coverages. That said, Silvers has made some outstanding throws into tight spots. Although he doesn’t turn the ball over much, it usually happens when he forces the throw.
Silvers has good size and is a good-to-very good athlete. He is listed as being 6030 – 221 — and he looks all of that. He has gotten bigger and stronger each year as a starter. He has a frame that can easily carry 225-230. As an athlete, he moves well. While not a speedster, Silvers, I would estimate, run the 40 in the 4.7’s. He has quick feet and a good feel for pass rushers. He shows the athleticism to extend plays and does a good job throwing on the run with accuracy. He doesn’t run the ball much, but Silvers’ ability to take off has to be accounted for by the defense.
