BIO: Three-year starter originally voted Big 10 Freshman of the Year in 1999. Finished his senior season completing 53.5 percent of his throws for 1,758 yards with 14 TDs and four INTs. Also totaled 466 yards on the ground with eight scores. Played barely half the season as a junior posting 51.4 percent-1,257-6-4 throwing the ball and 92-388-6 carrying it. Numbers were 52 percent-1,479-10-7 as a passer in 2000.

POSITIVES: Terrific athlete still learning the QB position. Sets up with solid footwork, patient and throws with an over the top delivery, following through on his passes. Natural looking off the safety, puts touch on his throws and smartly places the short passes. Goes to the safe underneath valve if nothing else is available. Gets outside the pocket and makes the throw on the move. Adequate arm strength and makes plays with his legs.

NEGATIVES: Plagued by inconsistency throughout college; accuracy can be woeful and seemingly not on the same page as receivers. Loses focus which usually results in a loss of total throwing mechanics. Too quick to pull the ball down and run with it in the past.

ANALYSIS: Displayed signs of life as a passer in 2002 and seems to be on the right track. Needs a lot of time and repetition, hence a solid practice squad consideration who could be headed to Europe next spring.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
