BIO: 2003 WAC Offensive Player of the Year after completing 61.9 percent/4,356/31/7 with a passing efficiency rating of 163.72. All-WAC selection as a junior despite missing four games with a broken ankle. Finished the year with passing numbers of 65.4 percent/2,283/20/3. Moved into the starting lineup as a sophomore and posted 62.4 percent/3,043/29/11.
POSITIVES: Smart, productive collegiate cornerback with marginal skills for the next level. Quickly sets up in the pocket, patient and goes through receiver progressions. Knows where wide outs are on the field, looks off the primary target or immediately finds the open pass-catcher. Senses the pressure yet buys as much time as possible and always in complete control. Displays a sense of timing, good wherewithal and does not make bad choices. Accurate between the numbers and leads receivers on the crossing throws.
NEGATIVES: Lacks pocket stature, arm strength and the quick release. Cannot escape the rush. Not accurate outside of 10 yards and lacks top pass placement. Twice tested positive for marijuana at Boise State.
ANALYSIS: An accurate college passer with outstanding touchdown-to-interception ratios, Dinwiddie lacks the size and arm strength to be a top quarterback prospect. Could catch on as a backup in a West Coast offensive system where his sense of timing will be used to a maximum.
