High SchoolColleyville Heritage (Colleyville, Texas)
Three-year starter at Florida State who passed for 6,872 yards and 49 touchdowns with 30 interceptions...Threw just 15 interceptions as a junior and senior combined after tossing 13 picks as a sophomore...Rushed for 10 touchdowns during career despite not being considered a major threat as a runner...Considered by many scouts to be one of the top two senior QB prospects in this draft class...Excels in the short to middle passing game and releases the ball quickly...An accurate passer who has played against top level competition...Has the athleticism to escape the rush and pick up a first down with his legs...Needs to make better decisions with the ball in his hands, as he has forced passes at times...Does not throw the deep ball with great accuracy...Suffered a few injuries that caused him to miss time while at FSU.
