His highlight reel emphasizes his good hands (man, what a meh quarterback!), but of course we can't tell how many drops or fumbles he had during the season.
Agree on the speed. While he posted a pretty fast 40 on his pro day, maybe pads really slow him down. And he runs upright without much of a lean.
He telegraphs his moves too much. I think his lack of football experience shows here, and he'll need to learn deception and a football poker face. Maybe those skills aren't easily transferred from basketball, where players -- particularly guards -- use those all the time.
Speaking of basketball, the success of some BB players going to football is well-known (see Graham, Jimmy and Gonzales, Tony). So that's an interesting intangible. I imagine if Coby Fleener had played roundball in addition to Stewie-ball, he'd be a top ten pick this year.

Easy to see you did your homework, Buck, and I applaud you for that. Interesting prospect...and as a late rd pick, what's Baalke got to lose? His ties to SD State are interesting, as are Harbaugh's to Stanford, which is why I see Fleener and potentially another of Coach's former players getting drafted.
