Alright, need some valuable info.
Does he fit in a WCO system and how so? Yes he does IMO. Nice, quick footwork. Makes the quick reads and zips the ball accurately to his receivers.
Does he have mobility? He's no Luck/Locker/Newton, but he can move around the pocket.
Is he accurate short to mid range field? Yes. Completed almost 65% of his passes at almost 9 yards per attempt. Here's a crazy stat: in 1st downs, he completed 92/131 passes, 70% completion percentage.
How are his feet? Good, quick feet. Stands tall in the pocket.
Does he have moxie to lead and question coaches? Yes. One of the things they mentioned he improved on this season is his decision making and confidence. He has all the confidence in his arm to make the accurate throws.
Does he have will to come back even after mistakes? After a tough junior season, his senior performance is proof that he can come back and be successful.
Does he play in a Pro set? Yes.
What do you guys think?
And after seeing the below clips of his footwork, I must agree. Seriously, love his feet. Like the way he continually looks down field, can move out of the pocket to buy time fluidly and his command and fire already speak for themselves. I love this kid's moxie already. Looks like he has pretty good accuracy from what I see.

Yea the songs suck while the highlights enlighten and intrigue.
He in the third looks good. If he does well in drills and in the SB, he could rise to the second. That's why his stock falling doesn't add up.
We will see.
in all seriousness, I think the kid has good footwork, his release is fairly quick. no locker type release but good. it's hard to tell from YouTube vids, but it looks like there is almost a little too much air under those deep passes. and it also looks like his velocity is lacking. again, hard to tell. I could be wrong. I would go second round for him.
