Notes:

Also lettered in baseball and track as a California prep. His father was a college quarterback at San Diego State and his mother was an All-America sprinter and hurdler at SDSU. In 2008, became only the fifth true freshman to start at quarterback for Colorado, completing 34-of-65 passes (52.3 percent) for 280 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions and rushed 63 times for 261 yards (4.1-yard average) in five contests (two starts). Appeared in eight games in ’09, making the last seven starts of the season, and managed 129-231-1,440-8-7 (55.8) with 84-64-1 (0.7) on the ground. Was sacked 33 times for minus-275 yards; on his other rushing attempts, he gained 6.6 yards per carry. Left the Oklahoma State game with a right thumb injury. Started the first seven games of the ’10 season before his season ended with a ruptured spleen suffered on an option play vs. Texas Tech. Passed for 112-164-1,102-6-6 (68.3) and rushed for 51-41-4 (0.8). Was named the starting quarterback coming out of ’11 spring practice. In the fall, started 12-of-13 games and threw for 231-412-2,833-20-11 (56.1) and rushed 81-115-3 (1.4). Did not start against Arizona State while recovering from a concussion but entered the game on Colorado’s third series. Had a 9-19 record in 28 career starts. Team captain.

Positives:

Athletic with good feet to roll the pocket and evade the rush. Quick, compact release and can alter arm slot. Functional arm strength. Flashes touch to drop in deep throws. Played in pro-style offense as a senior. Mentally and physically tough with solid character and leadership traits. Well-respected and coachable. Studies the game. Team captain.

Negatives:

Lacks ideal height. Flees the pocket prematurely. Average field vision. Accuracy wanes downfield. Inconsistent ball placement — makes receivers work too hard. Needs to clean up footwork. Can improve ballhandling.

Summary:

Short, competitive, hardworking, short-to-intermediate thrower whose intangibles outweigh his physical traits for the pro game. Has ideal makeup to hold a clipboard
