BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter who began his career at Washington State. All-Conference selection since his freshman campaign, and awarded
All-America honors as a senior. Passing numbers last year included 65.2%/3,706/37/6. Junior year numbers included 62.3%/3,386/30/10.
Has thrown for more than 2,500 yard every year in college and completed at least 62% of his throws.
POSITIVES: Reilly has the skill to play at the next level, but he must first get accustomed to the better competition he will face in
the NFL, and learn to make big-league type passes in a disciplined system. He is a solid round choice well worth developing
over the course of the next two years.
NEGATIVES: Stares down the primary target from the get go. Looks more comfortable taking snaps out of the shotgun and must improve his
footwork when dropping back from center. Seems to have a lot of passes tipped at the line of scrimmage. Looked awful against
top competition during the East-West game.
ANALYSIS: Big-time small-school quarterback with NFL potential. Poised passer who does not make adverse decisions under pressure and
does an outstanding job commanding the offense. Stands strong in the pocket, takes a hit and gets the throw away. Patient,
works hard to make positive plays, and always makes sound decisions throwing the ball. Can elude the rush, get outside the
pocket, and loses a little throwing on the move. Accurate, nicely places passes, and he puts touch on throws when necessary.
