BIO: Moved into the backup role as a senior, passing for 53.3 percent/879/6/4 after starting the previous campaign when he posted career numbers of 51.8 percent/2,752/24/10.
POSITIVES: Intelligent passer that's been plagued with inconsistency the past two seasons. Quickly sets up in the pocket with solid footwork, stands strong against the rush and does not force the throw. Looks off the safety, puts touch on passes and throws a catchable ball. Patient, buys time for receivers and throws nice corner routes, letting targets run to the ball.
NEGATIVES: Does not sense pressure nor can he escape the rush. Lacks timing, anticipation and late throwing the outs. Previously showed a tendency to lock onto a single receiver.
ANALYSIS: A tough leader and above average athlete, Fife has the skills to make a roster at the next level. Needs work on his overall game but threw well at the Combine and is now looked upon as a late-round, developmental passer.
