Notes: From Norton Shores, MI. Redshirted in 2015. Played in 10 games, started 9, completed 165-of-311 passes (53.1%) for 1,772 yards, 9 touchdowns, 9 interceptions and rushed for 399 yards and 5 TD on 99 carries (4.0 avg.) in 2016.

A redshirt junior who has already graduate, he originally entered his name in the NCAA transfer portal shortly after the the Dollar General Bowl, but then opted to declare for the draft. Training with QB Summit, Jordan Palmer’s private coaching company, in San Clemente, Calif., in preparation for the draft. Big hands (10 1/4"), tops among quarterbacks at the Combine.

Positives: Exceptional size and stature. Natural athletic ability. Can really wing it; able to throw deep downfield or zip the ball into tight windows. Can avoid and shrug off the rush and throw on the move. Very good footspeed. Can buy time with his feet and run for positive yardage. A load to bring down.

Negatives: Inconsistent accuracy. Needs work reading defenses and plenty of technical work to clean up mechanics and currently has a little too much school-yard style in his play.

Summary: Developmental prospect with unique skills and lots of upside potential.
