BIOGRAPHY: Moved into the starting position as a senior and threw for 58.6%/2,493/16/16. Played in three games as a junior in place of
the injured Brian Brohm.
POSITIVES: Cantwell came into his senior season with high expectations, yet he really looked out of place, for the most part. He possesses
the physical skills to play at the next level, but he must improve his accuracy, defensive reads, and almost every other aspect
of the position. He's worth a look in the late rounds as a quarterback who could be placed on a practice squad with hopes
for future development.
NEGATIVES: Has a long delivery, which slows the release of passes. Does not sense pressure in the pocket, lacks a sense of timing, and
shows little in the way of awareness. Rarely shows he's got his finger on the pulse of the game. Erratic accuracy and poor
pass placement. Struggles finding the safety, does not correctly read defenses, and constantly throws into coverage.
ANALYSIS: Nice-sized pocket passer with an undeveloped game. Patient, possesses a rifle arm, and zips the ball into tight spots or gets
the long pass downfield. Gets outside the pocket, can make the throw on the move and loses little on passes. Tough, and will
stand in the pocket and take a hit in order to get the ball away.
