QB Chandler Harnish, Northern Illinois

Colts, 7th round. N. Ill.: Slightly below-average size, but adequate bulk. Average hand size.

Positives: Throws with touch on intermediate routes. Runs tough. Looks fairly comfortable under pressure, and keeps eyes downfield when flushed outside the pocket. Goes through progressions when given time. Good runner. Fights for extra yards. Fair accuracy on timing routes. Very good play fakes. Knows when to throw ball away. Very mobile. Adequate velocity. Adequate speed. Very good change-of-direction skills. Adequate burst as a runner.

Negatives: Generally used in spread system, and fumbled snap under center in Shrine Game. Not much arm strength, and makes decision too late for his arm. Throws across body often. Poor accuracy — misses some wide-open throws and often throws high. Ball security an issue.

Projection: Has the athleticism and just enough passing talent to stick as a long-term backup. Not likely to ever be a contributor, though. Will probably be Colts’ 3rd QB in 2012, and may have a long career as a journeyman-type backup.
