Notes:

Led Miami’s Northwestern High School to a national championship, two state championships, a 30-0 record and was named to the Parade All-America team as a senior. In 2008, he became the first Miami freshman since Bernie Kosar in 1983 to start the season opener at quarterback. Played in all 13 games (two starts — also season finale), completing 118-of-194 passes (60.8 percent) for 1,195 yards, 12 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Started all 13 games in ’09 and produced 242-406-3,352-24-17 (59.6). Dealt with a torn ligament in his right (throwing) thumb late in the season, which required surgery, and he missed ’10 spring practice. Saw action in 10 games (nine starts) in ’10, throwing 148-270-1,793-14-15 (54.8). Started the first eight games before suffering a concussion against Virginia and missing the next three weeks. Returned against South Florida and started the Sun Bowl against Notre Dame but was pulled after throwing three interceptions in seven passes. Also dealt with a torn left labrum against Pittsburgh and a groin tweak in early October. Started 11 games in ’11 and threw for 195-300-2,486-20-9 (for a school-record 65 percent). Was suspended by the NCAA for the season opener against Maryland for accepting improper benefits. His total of 70 passing touchdowns and 8,826 passing yards both rank second in school history. Two-time team captain. Had a 21-14 record in 35 career starts. 

Positives:

Athletic with good foot speed for the position. Escapes the rush. Quick-armed with functional arm strength. Improved TD-interception ratio as a senior. Showed some toughness bouncing back from big hits. Experienced, four-year starter.

Negatives:

Is lean and narrow and has been hurt. Faulty internal clock — impatient in the pocket and does not feel pressure. Footwork needs to be cleaned up. Inconsistent timing, anticipation and accuracy. Telegraphs passes and forces into coverage. Velocity throws lag in the air. Coasted on natural talent and does not know what it means to be a pro. Lacks ideal leadership traits.

Summary:

Skinny, injury-prone, indecisive thrower who leaves Miami underdeveloped from a physical and mental standpoint. Has enough arm talent and athletic ability to stick but is a developmental project who could struggle adapting to the speed and complexity of the NFL game.
