BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter who totaled 63.2%/2361/23/10 as a senior when he missed three games with a broken finger. Junior-year totals included 61.7%/3347/29/9.
POSITIVES: Adequately sized pocket-passer who's at his best in a timing offense. Accurate in the short field, powers the ball between defenders, and nicely times the outs. Patient, takes the safe underneath outlet, and has a nice sense of knowing where his receivers are on the field. Does not lose much throwing on the run and consistently looks downfield to make positive plays. Immediately gets the ball out of his hands off a three-step drop. Effectively uses the pump fake and displays good command of the offense.
NEGATIVES: Indecisive when pressured and stares down the primary target. Cannot escape the blitz. At times all over the place with passes and off the mark with deep throws.
ANALYSIS: Booty is a solid quarterback prospect coming off a disappointing senior campaign. He has enough tools to start in the NFL for a ball-control offense, yet he will struggle for a team that likes the vertical game. He will need a year or two to develop.
