QB James Vandenburg, Iowa

Vikings, UDFA. Iowa: Adequate height and good bulk. Above-average hand size. Short arms.

Positives: Has experience with pro style and zone-read systems. Steps into throws. Average arm. Adequate velocity. Willing to throw into traffic. Nice touch. Overhand delivery and a quick release. Moves well in pocket. Above-average change-of-direction skills. Doesn’t give up on plays. Above-average speed and willing to run. Good play fakes.

Negatives: Throws across body at times. A little slow to react and holds ball too long. Seems a little skittish in the pocket. Slides headfirst on many runs. Eyeballs receivers. Doesn’t seem to sense pressure coming. Below-average deep accuracy. Below-average footwork on dropback.

Projection: Will battle Joe Webb and McLeod Bethel-Thompson for third QB spot. Might beat Thompson, but probably not Webb. Should find an NFL spot, though, and has the tools to stick as a career backup, especially in a west coast offense. No need to draft, though.
