Second-Team All-Big Ten in 2009 as a senior...Shined in the East-West Shrine Game and racked up a school-record 532 yards in the 2010 Outback Bowl...Led the Big Ten in passing yards (263.8 ypg), completion percentage (.648) and fewest interceptions thrown (2.44 percent of all attempts) in 2009...Ran for eight touchdowns as a senior, proving to be a threat on the ground...Is a fairly accurate passer in the short game, and has shown some accuracy down the field, although Northwestern didn't throw the deep ball much...Did operate out of the shotgun in college much more than under center...Biggest strength is his intelligence, as Kafka can read a defense and understands both its strengths and weaknesses...Hard worker who is a true leader...Lack of elite physical ability places him outside the discussion of the top QBs in this draft.
