When given time he is quite accurate, but on occasion puts too much air under the ball. One thing that really impressed me was his ability to run to the left and throw across his body to the left side of the field. I would like to see it more, but what I did see was good. That's a tough throw for most to make, he did it with apparent ease.
The auburn 2010 game when mallett was injured was the last time he really had a decent OL. He played great on short notice. If you thought that LSU game was bad the 2011 alabama game was even worse...don't know how he survived it.
Our OL has played better the last few weeks but we havent played anyone. He gets his 2nd best target in TE Chris Gragg back this week who has missed the past 3 games so that will be a boost.
His deep ball needs some work but other than that if you give him a good OL he will be a solid QB
