QB Ricky Stanzi Iowa

Height: 6-4 3/8
Weight: 223
Speed: 4.93
Arm: 32
Hand: 10
Wingspan: 77 5/8
Birthdate: 09/03/1987
Hometown: Mentor, OH
Grade: 5.53



Notes: Also earned four letters in basketball as an Ohio prep. Redshirted in 2006. Arrested in May 07 for underaged possession of alcohol. Saw very limited action in two games in 07, recording just an interception in four pass attempts. In the fall, started 11-of-13 games (yielded starts to Jake Christensen against Maine and Pittsburgh) and completed 150-of-254 pass attempts (59.1 percent) for 1,956 yards with 14 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Started all 11 games in which he played in 09, tossing 171-304-2,417-17-15 (56.3). Missed a pair of games after severely spraining his right ankle against Northwestern and undergoing surgery. Healthy in 10, started all 13 games and totaled 221-345-3,004-25-6 (64.1). Sprained his left knee in the season opener. Team captain. Had a 26-9 career starting record.

Positives: Outstanding size with a compact, over-the-top delivery. Played in pro-style offense and is very comfortable operating from underneath center. Good footwork and delivery quickness. Has enough arm strength, and it has improved in recent years. Nice footwork. Athletic enough to sidestep the first wave of pressure. Smart, hardworking and is passionate about the game is wired the right way, works at his craft and has earned the respect of his teammates. Very humble and quietly competitive. Will play through pain.

Negatives: Has a very lean build, is still underdeveloped physically and needs to spend more time in the weight room and get stronger. Does not drive the ball downfield and some balls die with low RPMs. Can be flustered by pressure and forced into making bad throws. Does not read the whole field or see undercutting safeties needs to hone his instincts and become more confident anticipating receivers coming open and pulling the trigger. Must improve field vision, anticipation and progression quickness. Could not come through in the clutch and close out tight contests vs. Arizona, Wisconsin and Northwestern when the game was on the line. Did not exude confidence at the Senior Bowl or show well.

Summary: An excellent-sized, pro-style passer who still needs to learn to trust his eyes and get the ball out on time, Stanzi has a strong base from which to develop and could blossom with quality coaching that feeds his confidence. Has appealing intangibles, leadership traits and work habits and most of his flaws are correctable. Has potential to develop into an eventual starter and draws some eerily similar semblance to a young Tom Brady.

NFL projection: Third- to fourth-round pick.

Not sold on his QB ability in the least bit. IA fans were sold on him early in his career, but lost faith in him late with his INT issues (Jr year) and mental lapses in his senior season. He's probably the most streaky QB I've ever watched in my life. Extremely hot and cold.

I don't project Stanzi as a starting QB ever, but a decent backup. Think a stronger Brodie Croyle without as good of collegiate career.

I'll be greatly surprised if he's ever a starter but I don't think a backup QB in the 5th round is a bad pick.

Whatever. Stanzi's INT problems were because of his gunslinger mentality. Had to win, and won lots of games for the Hawkeyes, unfortunately as a JR. he almost lost a few trying to be like Brett Favre. The only question mark he has as far as I'm concerned is his deep ball.

I love this pick.

At the very least, he's EASILY a better option at backup than Croyle, who is a waste of a roster spot at this point.

Just like every QB in this draft, he has some flaws. But he has enough positives to dream on and project him as a potential solid starter one day.

He was never, ever a gunslinger. He threw INT's because he is prone to making mental errors. It happened over and over and over again his entire career. Iowa had to simplify the offense his SENIOR season, and give him 1-2 reads with high percentage throws. And this is with two of the best WRs Iowa has ever seen, and decent TE's.

I don't mind the pick, but I have a very hard time envisioning him as a starter.
