BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter whose senior year stats were 61%/1,807/12/10. All-Conference selection as a junior after completing 66.7% of his throws for 3,077 yards.
POSITIVES: Smart, hard-working passer with an NFL arm. Patient in the pocket, poised under pressure and buys time for receivers. Throws with an over-the-top delivery, accurate and nicely places the pass. Does not force the ball into coverage.
NEGATIVES: Not an elusive passer who can escape the rush. Struggled with injuries late in his senior campaign. Holds the ball too long in the pocket. Gets rattled, lose confidence and the roof will cave in.
ANALYSIS: After a tremendous start to his senior campaign, Stanton watched his draft stock fall dramatically due to poor play since October. Fell apart and lost confidence as his senior season progressed, then got injured. He may have salvaged his status a bit in offseson workouts.
