Comparison

Jarrett Stidham New England Patriots

Owns good size and frame for the QB position with an athletic, somewhat high-cut build. Great length will allow for more mass in a college weight-training program. Multi-sport background in football, basketball and baseball. Played 58 games in basketball across freshman and sophomore years, averaging 11 points, six rebounds, and two blocks. Bouncy athlete with explosion on the hardwood. Functional athleticism shows on the gridiron as a play-extender outside the pocket and a runner, whether designed or scrambling. Not a burner but a long-striding speed-builder in the open field with good long speed relative to position. Generates a lot of torque and subsequent arm strength when throwing on the run, especially throwing across his body when rolling left. Displays good awareness in the pocket and has an instinctive play style that allows for big-play ability in off-schedule situations. Places the ball well on downfield throws outside the numbers. Arm strength does not look to be an issue. Size and athleticism allow for good over-the-middle velocity when required. Strong but not elite production through sophomore and junior seasons. Accuracy and consistency can improve, as evidenced by 57 completion percentage over 2019-2020 seasons. Will need to cut down on turnovers (INT rate of one in every 29.36 throws over sophomore and junior seasons). Will take some chances with his arm at times, but that's also part of what makes him dangerous as a playmaker. Looks like one of the better 2022 quarterbacks nationally with a high developmental upside. Projects to high-major competition with the long-term potential to reach mid- to early-round NFL Draft consideration.
