Reminds Us Of

Michael Penix Jr. Washington Huskies

A productive southpaw with a quicker release that can attack all different levels of the field. Exits high school with a 36-6 record as a starter. Made history as a junior leading his school to its first state title, but saw production dip as a senior while working with a new offensive coordinator. Still, has one of the more impressive on-field resumes in the 2024 cycle having passed for 10,164 yards and 126 touchdowns over the course of four seasons. Loves to pick apart defenses from the pocket and doesn’t take long to process. Natural arm talent flashed multiple times during in-person evaluations as he has the pace to get balls out to the numbers and the touch to drop them in over coverage. Elusive enough to get away from trouble and can move the chains every now and then with his legs. Tossed just four interceptions as a junior, but turned the ball over four times in the final game of his prep career. Must get better at limiting mistakes, but at the same time has shown that he’s not afraid to take a risk, which in turn allows him to play a bit more freely than others. Should be viewed as a potential point guard for a College Football Playoff contender that can push the pace and get his playmakers involved. Likely going to need a developmental year or two, but has early-round NFL Draft upside, especially with his business-like mindset.
