Just watching a little video, he uses a 3/4 delivery, carries the ball too low, and and has poor footwork. The latter two are coachable, but why hasn't he made progress on these issues to date? Tennessee only asks him to read one side of the field on most plays: two options and pick the best one. He'll be asked to do much more the pros. Great arm and quick release are positives -- but he probably has those through natural talent. Where has his game improved as a result of coaching? He has potential, but has he shown any evidence that he wants to reach it? His stats on a per pass basis improved a little between 2010 and 2011, but 2012 is basically the same. I'd like to see more growth. People don't change that much in terms of attitude and work ethic. If he hasn't shown a desire to improve his game so far, I think he is unlikely to be a good prospect for molding into a future franchise QB.
