-Very good in the intermediate throws.
-Can make good throws downfield.
-Goes through progressions almost every play.
-Reads defenses well and can fool DB's with his eyes.
-Very strong arm. Not elite, but 2nd tier like Joe Flacco.

Watch this Clemson (63rd ranked D, 1 higher than OU) game to get another great look at his abilities.



Like I said before, his accuracy problems are a mirage. In previous threads, it was noted that his receivers dropped 12 passes in the NC and Maryland game. In this Clemson game, his WR's dropped 5 balls that should have been easy catches. If those 17 passes were caught, like they should have been, his completion % is 61.5.

And yes he does check down a lot, but I don't blame him. His WR's suck ass and get no separation while his OL is getting beat constantly.
When I saw him live the only passes that were accurate were passes in which there wasn't even a window. It was more like a 30 yard cushion. When required to throw into a small window he couldn't even hit the side of the house.

His accuracy problems are real, IMO. He sucks. Do not want.
