Player Background
Started 12 games in 2013 completing 64.9 percent of his passes for 3,082 yards with 22 TDs to just eight INTs, a vast improvement over his 2012 numbers (.588, 2,609 yards, 12 TDs, seven INTs) ... Only the third LSU quarterback to throw for 3,000 yards in a season ... Tore ACL in regular-season finale, but showed to be healing nicely from surgery at his pro day workout ... Ideal size for an NFL signal caller ... Elite arm strength and throws a tight spiral every time ... Fits balls into tight spaces on a regular basis ... Blossomed in Cam Cameron's NFL-style offense in 2013 ... Mechanics needs work, lumbering feet and a long release ... Played with an elite receiving corps in Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry and oftentimes played with tunnel vision and forced the issue because of it ... Needs to improve in diagnosing blitzes ... Could be a mid-round steal if his rehab continues to go well.
