BIO: Three-year starter who began his college career at Houston. All-Conference selection as a senior after 57.3%/2,875/21/9 passing, also led the team on the ground with 159/1,057/13. Posted a career-high 3,129 yards passing as a sophomore before suffering a shoulder injury the following year.
POSITIVES: Good-sized athlete who projects to a number of NFL positions. Patient pocket passer who sees the field, buys time for receivers and makes good decisions. Calm under pressure, senses the rush and natural looking off the safety. Improvises if plays break down, loses nothing throwing on the run and is a strong ball carrier up the field.
NEGATIVES: Lacks the quick setup and release, gathers before delivering the ball and throws with a three-quarters delivery. Late on timing patterns, lacks pass placement and is marginally accurate.
ANALYSIS: Physically gifted, Nealy has solid quarterback intangibles, though his accuracy must be questioned. A developmental prospect, he is an athlete who will be brought into camp and tried at several positions.
