Biography: All-Conference selection as a senior after posting a career numbers of 67.9%/3271/21/7. Threw for 703 yards as a junior when he was the team's backup after 57.7%/1661/9/15 as a sophomore when he started nine games.
Positives: Patient college quarterback who lacks the physical skills to play at the next level. Poised in the pocket, sells the ball fakes, and displays a tremendous sense of knowing where his receivers are on the field. Buys time for receivers, effectively leads the offense and displays great awareness. Throws with an over-the-top delivery and displays a sense of timing.
Negatives: Lacks a quick release, arm strength, and passes display little velocity. Cannot get the ball downfield.
Analysis: Canfield comes off a terrific senior season and went from draft afterthought to potential late-round pick. He lacks the physical skills to be anything other than a number three quarterback at the next level yet could be an asset holding a clipboard on the sidelines.
