Hometown: Kansas City, Mo.

Position: Quarterback

Height: 6-0

My Assessment: He doesn’t have the ideal measureables to play quarterback, but he throws the ball pretty well. He is accurate down the field and can drop the ball just over the defender. He has escapability within the pocket. He can keep plays alive with his feet. He physically looks more like a running back than a quarterback.
