Notes:
American Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Year in 2013 ... Semifinalist for the Davey O'Brien Award for the nation's top quarterback ... 2014 Fiesta Bowl MVP after throwing for 301 yards and three TDs in a 52-42 win over Baylor ... Completed 67.8 percent of his passes as a junior for 3,581 yards with 25 TDs and nine INTs, giving him at least 3,000 passing yards and 25 TDs in back-to-back seasons ... 22-5 record as a starter at UCF ... Ideal size for an NFL signal caller ... Strong arm and accurate, especially on intermediate routes ... Poised in the pocket, doesn't get rattled under pressure ... Excellent awareness both in reading the pass-rush and making progressions ... Displays nice touch on throws down the field ... Sneaky good athlete, running a 4.93 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine with a 32.5 inch vertical leap ... Not afraid to take off and run ... Throwing mechanics not perfect, could stand to make his release more compact ... Primarily worked out of the shotgun in college ... Ball flutters on deep routes ... Ball security issues (nine fumbles in 2013) ... Expected to be one of the top quarterbacks off the board.
