 Dustin Almond Grade: 2.85
 Position: QB
 Class: Sr
 School: Southern Miss
 Conference: Conference USA
 Ht., Wt.: 6-1, 210
 40 Time: 4.83

BIO: Full-time starter the past two seasons throwing for 54.8%/2,860/23/12 as a senior after 1,848 yards and 12 touchdowns the prior year.

POSITIVES: Tough, pocket passer best in the short field. Sells the play-action pass, goes through receiver progressions and looks off the safety. Buys time for receivers and accurately zips the short throws. Poised, does not make bad decisions and consistently goes to secondary targets.

NEGATIVES: Lacks a big arm and cannot drive the ball downfield. Off the mark outside of 15 yards. Not a nimble quarterback who can elude the rush.

ANALYSIS: Effectively commanding the Southern Miss offense for two years, Almond lacks the pure physical skills to play at the next level and is at best a third quarterback.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
