BIO: Four-year starter and All-Conference quarterback who holds numerous passing records at Akron. Posted 63.6 percent/2,623/18/8 as a senior. Career numbers of 3,549 yards passing with 22 touchdowns came as a junior.
POSITIVES: Nice-sized passer and a natural, smart leader. Sets up in the pocket with good footwork, remains poised and goes through receiver progressions, buying time for wideouts. Senses the rush, scrambles to elude defenders and tosses to the safe underneath route if nothing is available downfield. Displays good field awareness and very good at finding the open wideout. Throws with an over-the-top delivery displaying zip on the short throws and the ability to quickly get the ball into the intended targets hands. Nicely times the outs, places long throws well and tosses the ball away if nothing is available. Tough competitor who plays while injured.
NEGATIVES: Steps out of throws on occasion, which adversely affects his accuracy. Possesses a solid arm, yet does not have the gun to drive deep throws.
ANALYSIS: A signal-caller who.s displayed progress throughout his college career, Frye offers both the physical and mental intangibles for the next level. More athletic than given credit for and can be used in a variety of passing offenses. Needs time to consistently play at a higher level of competition, yet a solid top-60 choice who significantly improved his stock with a good Senior Bowl showing.
