Grading System
Bob Pesavento | QB | Colorado | Big Twelve Conference
Height Weight 40 Grade
6'3½ 218 4.72 3.01
Former junior-college transfer that came to Colorado by way of Miami-Ohio University. Finished his senior season throwing 61.2%/1,234/8/4 after being moved in and out of the starting quarterback position the past two seasons

Nice-sized, mobile signal caller that needs to severely improve his quarterbacking fundamentals. Sets up with solid footwork, displaying good ball placement dropping into the pocket, gets air under his deep throws giving receivers a chance and shows zip on his intermediate range passes. Elusive, makes plays on the move and gets outside the pocket to avoid the rush. Not quick releasing off a three step drop nor does he throw with an the over the top delivery and directs his passes too much. Does not see the field, holds the ball a bit long and forces the ball into coverage. Lacks a true feel for the position and shows minimal skills as a pocket passer. Needs a lot of work to become a ""passer"" rather than ""thrower but the underlying athletic fundamentals make him worth a look in camp. Free Agent.
