Player Background
2012 Heisman Trophy winner and a finalist again in 2013 ... Two-time First Team All-SEC selection ... Won nearly every major quarterback award following a historic freshman campaign in 2012, including the Davey O'Brien Award ... Completed just shy of 70 percent of his passes in 2013 for 4,114 yards, 37 TDs and 13 INTs while rushing for an additional 759 yards and nine scores ... 47 overall TDs in 2012 (26 passing, 21 rushing) with 3,706 passing and 1,410 rushing yards ... 907 yards of total offense and seven TDs in two career games versus Alabama ... Unquestioned athleticism, grading as a top performer at the NFL Combine in the 40-yard dash (4.68), vertical leap (31.5 inches) and broad jump (113 inches) ... Buys times with great scrambling ability ... Natural instincts and a fierce competitor ... Steps up play on 3rd down and late in the game ... Makes up for lack of height (6-0) with solid bulk and big hands ... Oftentimes plays by his own rules, resulting in sloppy mechanics and reckless decision-making ... Too quick to take off and run when the opportunity to step up in the pocket is there, won't be as easy to outrun NFL defensive players ... Not known for his leadership abilities ... Character red flags following numerous tabloid headlines ... Polarizing figure, with ranging opinions regarding potential.
