Notes:
Three-year starter at Missouri ... Completed 62.1 percent of his passes in 2013 for 2,429 yards, 23 TDs (four rushing) and six INTs but missed four games with a shoulder injury ... Missed significant time due to injury in 2012 as well (.594, 1,562 yards, 10 TDs, seven INTs) ... Improved his down-field passing with every season ... Adequate arm strength ... Makes smart decisions and gets the ball in the hands of his playmakers quickly ... Great athleticism and a big threat out of the pocket (981 rushing yards, 15 TDs in his career)... Inconsistent accuracy on balls more than 10 yards down the field ... Benefitted from Missouri's quarterback-friendly system ... Injury history a red flag.
