Born  3/17/1988

College  Fordham
 
Notes:
2009 First-Team All-Patriot League...2007 Second-Team All-Patriot League...Finished collegiate career having completed 802-of-1,363 passes for 9,923 yards and 69 touchdown passes...At 6-6 and 243 pounds, Skelton has tremendous size for the position...Played at Fordham, so the lack of top level competition is his biggest knock...Can throw the ball 50 yards with the flick of a wrist, as tremendous arm strength is his top attribute...Can make every NFL throw, but doesn't toss the tightest spiral...Decent accuracy, although he doesn't excel in that aspect of the game...Moves well for a man his size, enabling him to extend plays and pick up a tough yard...A proven leader...Understands how to read a defense...Compared to Joe Flacco of the Baltimore Ravens, another big quarterback who also played against sub par competition in college.
