 Brett Basanez Grade: 3.26
 Position: QB
 Class: Sr
 School: Northwestern
 Conference: Big Ten
 Ht., Wt.: 6-1.5, 220
 40 Time: 4.77

BIO: Big 10 Offensive Player of the Year as a senior with passing numbers of 63.2%/3,622/21. Posted 2,838 passing yards and 12 touchdowns as a junior.

POSITIVES: Patient signal-caller who is accurate in the short field. Buys time for receivers, remains poised under pressure and goes through progressions. Puts touch on throws when necessary and displays excellent timing. Rolls outside the pocket to give himself a better view of the field.

NEGATIVES: Must improve his pass placement as receivers constantly reach backwards to make the grab. Does not find the safety and forces passes.

ANALYSIS: Benefiting from a passing system, Basanez has been a productive and durable starter the past four years. May have a place at the next level in a timing offense, yet not much more than a clipboard holder.

PROJECTION: Late Seventh Round
