- Does really well reading defenses for a college quarterback.
- Good field vision.
- Has great touch on his throws.
- Shows very good accuracy on his passes.
- Good decision maker overall, but that’s not to say that he didn’t make mistakes in 2010.
- Has the athleticism to pull down the ball and run with it.
- Has good arm strength and is capable of making every NFL throw.
- Runs a pro-style offense at Stanford, so adjusting to an NFL system won’t be an issue.
- No character concerns and is a very hard worker.
- Has got “all the intangibles” looked for in an NFL quarterback.
- Very smart in classroom (valedictorian in high school, will get Architectural Design degree after this season).
- Doesn’t have the quickest arm motion (little bit of a wind-up), but it’s still very much adequate for a great prospect.
- Shows some good toughness.
- Sometimes he runs too far backwards when the rush closes in on him and that could create some negative plays in the NFL.
- I’d like to see him throw the ball away more. In some of those cases, however, positive plays are created from potentially negative ones.
