UDFA. Signed by the Vikings as a UDFA but was released in August and put on their practice squad.
All-Star Games: Senior Bowl.
Positives: Above-average bulk. Above-average hand size. Runs with above-average speed and good quickness. Good vision. Above-average hands and can extend for passes away from his body. Was a versatile QB at Northwestern who also played wide receiver. Throws with adequate velocity.
Negatives: Below-average height. Withdrew late in Senior Bowl week to have ankle surgery and missed around two months, which seemed to affect his game – especially his quickness. Though he had above-average hands in college, he let a lot of passes get to his body during Senior Bowl practices. Runs below-average routes, and rounds them off consistently. Has a very hard time fighting off of press coverage and physical cornerback play. Much more of a running QB than a passing QB in college. Below-average accuracy at all levels and on the run. Poor decisions – throws into traffic often. Throws off back foot often. Misses a lot of wide-open reads. Had a concussion in the first game of 2013 but was back the next week. Also had ankle surgery in February, but planned to be ready for March pro day.
Projection: No need to draft him, but keep an eye on him.
