BIO: Three-year starter named Conference MVP as a senior after passing totals of 62.3%/2,469/29/12. Posted a career-best 3,518 passing yards as a junior and 29 throwing touchdowns during his sophomore campaign.
POSITIVES: Hard-working, intelligent signal-caller who is best in the short field. Sets up with solid footwork, goes through receiver progressions and locates the open wideout. Makes good decisions in the pocket, rarely forces throws and takes the safe underneath outlet if nothing else is available. Buys time for receivers, senses pressure and is accurate between the numbers.
NEGATIVES: Cannot zip the outs and lacks top pass placement. Under-throws deep targets.
ANALYSIS: A productive, hard-working signal-caller, Gradkowski possesses the intangibles NFL scouts want in a passer, but the inability to throw the long ball hampers his potential at the next level.
