Gage Gubrud, QB, Eastern Washington #8

6012, 205, 4.79

Notes: Name is pronounced “GOO-brood.” Born in Portland, OR. Three-sport (football, baseball, basketball) star at McMinnville High School. Redshirted in 2014. Saw limited action in 3 games in 2015; completed 7-of-13 (53.8%) passes for 66 yards, 1 INT and rushed 12-31-1. Really excelled throwing to Cooper Kupp (third-round pick by Rams) in 2016, setting numerous Big Sky Conference records as he completed 386-of-570 (67.7%) passing for 5,160 yards, 48 TD, 14 INT and rushed 134-606-5; also caught one pass for 54 yards and TD. Completed 261-of-422 (61.8%) for 3,342 yards, 26 TD, 12 INT; rushed 82-236-5, and caught 2-38-1 in 2017. Has also punted occasionally.

Positives: Good athlete. Moves well within the pocket. Can avoid the rush and buy time with his feet. Effective runner from scrimmage. Solid footwork and mechanics. Gets the ball out quickly. Pinpoint accurate at times. Knows how to throw open receivers; hits open spots between defenders.

Negatives: Average size. Needs to refine timing and touch as a passer. Inconsistent accuracy. A little off target too often and misses on too many big-play opportunities.

Summary: Flashes talent, but regressed after Kupp went to the NFL. Needs time on a practice squad to improve his overall consistency as a passer.
