Quarterbacks

Mississippi v Memphis

By Oliver Connolly, Editor-In-Chief

What we’re looking for/grading

Production – The players collegiate production; efficiency, touchdown-interception ratio. Also, did the player elevate the level of those around him? And did he play within the structure of his college offense?

Athleticism – The blend of height-weight-speed. Informed largely by combine numbers and pro days.

Mental The players mental makeup and the ability to play the game from the neck up. This includes; decision making, the quickness of decision making, eyes, field vision, risk taking, competitiveness, playing within the structure of an offense and throwing with anticipation.

Arm Talent – The blend of throwing power with touch, accuracy, throwing motion and release.

Accuracy – The number one quarterback trait. Is the quarterback accurate? Does he complete balls or does he throws people open? Can he make throws accurately to all levels of the field?

Mobility – This is mobility both inside and outside the pocket. Not purely the ability to make athletic plays outside the pocket but the ability to slide and move within the pocket and to step into throws. Pocket mobility is more essential than outside the pocket mobility.
