UDFA. Signed by the Broncos as a UDFA but released in August. I think he has solid enough skills to be a quality backup in the NFL. Has QB3 potential if he starts.
Positives: Good height and bulk for the position. Adequate hand size. Throws with adequate arm strength and above-average touch. Especially accurate on timing routes. Is able to go through his progressions quickly and make fast decisions. Is an experienced three-year starter in college. Ran a high-tempo offense.
Negatives: below-average track speed, quickness, and change of direction ability for the position. Was in a spread offense in college, so he may not be ready to run a typical NFL offense. Below-average velocity. Longish delivery. Tends to make bad decisions and force the ball in clutch situations. Lacks poise in the red zone and often misses open reads there and lock on to receiver, forgetting his progressions. Seems to have happy feet and doesn’t set his feet in the pocket to deliver passes under pressure. On the move, he loses a lot of velocity on his passes. Seems to check down consistently. Injured foot in October 2013 and missed one game. Injured left shoulder in November 2013, had surgery and missed the rest of the season.
Projection: Probably not a quality starter in the NFL, but could develop into a solid backup..
