Projection

2-3 Round Day 2

Good height and length with big hands and a lean, athletic frame. Should be able to add considerable mass. Physical upside is a plus.

Excels delivering from the pocket over the middle in the short-to-intermediate passing game. Has shown impressive ball placement consistency to multiple levels. Particularly dangerous hitting moving targets on slants and other inward-breaking routes.

Keeps the ball fairly high with a relatively overheard release. Ball gets out quickly enough. Generates encouraging throw power on the run.

Good athletic profile that includes experience in the 110-meter hurdles, 300-meter hurdles, and triple jump. Also owns solid combine testing data.

Enormous production across three full varsity seasons. Averaged about 275 passing yards per game across nearly three dozen contests from 2020-22.

Sometimes requires noticeable load-up to push the ball downfield. Will need over-the-middle intermediate velocity to translate to similar throws outside the numbers. Was not asked to run much in high school, but still can translate multi-sport athleticism better to QB position when required to run.

Considered among the top quarterbacks in Texas and nationally in the 2023 recruiting class. Projects as a high-major prospect and potential multi-year impact starter with a long-term ceiling that leads to serious NFL Draft consideration.
