Notes:

Was a Parade All-America selection as a California prep, accounting for 8,668 yards of total offense and 76 touchdowns as three-year starter. Started his college career at USC, where he redshirted in 2007. Appeared in five games as a backup in ’08, completing 2-of-4 passes for 14 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions. Entered ’09 as the starter but suffered a broken bone in his left leg (cracked head of the fibula) and lost the job to true freshman Matt Barkley. Served as a backup all season, playing in only three games (one start against Washington), throwing 17-26-155-1-1 (65.4) and rushing four times for seven yards (1.8-yard average). Transferred to Richmond, where he started the first five games of the ’10 season, posting 67-123-645-3-4 (54.5) and 19-51-0 (2.7) before suffering a season-ending right knee injury (torn ACL) on the first series at New Hampshire, requiring reconstructive knee surgery. Made 11 starts for the Spiders in ’11 and recorded 247-388-2,682-17-13 (63.7). Set the NCAA FCS single-game record with a 91.2 percent completion at Towson after completing 31-of-34 passes. Had a 5-12 record in 17 career starts. Team captain.

Positives:

Played in a pro-style system. Generally knows where to go with the ball and will take the check-down. Quick, short-armed release. Very good touch passer. Shows anticipation and the ability to place the ball in windows. Confident, respected leader who demonstrates authority in the huddle. Team captain.

Negatives:

Has an underdeveloped frame and needs to make significant strength gains in order to bulk up and withstand a pounding. Has been injury-prone and durability is a concern. Average arm strength. Foot quickness and escapability are merely adequate. Effectiveness wanes without a clean pocket. Inconsistent and relatively inexperienced (17 career starts). Did not excel on third downs.

Summary:

Tough, smart, competitive, up-and-down performer who looks like a pro prospect when he has time and space to drop back and throw on balance, but needs to get physically stronger and add a few RPMs to his fastball. Could be groomed as a backup in a dink-and-dunk, West Coast offense. Has to prove he can stay healthy.
