MVP of the TicketCity Bowl as a senior...Was tremendous as a senior, completing 67 percent of his passes for 3,726 yards and 35 touchdowns against only 10 interceptions...Threw for 3,440 yards and 22 TDs with 13 INTs as a junior...Has good size for the position at 6-4 and 220 pounds...Was highly productive both seasons as a starter for Texas Tech...Played against top competition in the Big 12...Solid arm strength and accuracy, but doesn't excel in either area...Goes through progressions smoothly when protection holds up...Willing to take a hit to deliver a pass...At his best when in the pocket rather than on the move...Took very few snaps under center in college, an obvious area of concern...Most of his passes in college were thrown close to the line of scrimmage, relying on the run-after-catch ability of receivers...Does not throw the deep ball well...Needs to improve throwing the ball on the run.
