Conference: Colonial Athletic
40 Time: 4.82
Biography: First-year starter who totaled 60.3%/2778/16/9.
Positives: High percentage short yardage passer with a nice sense of timing. Patient in the pocket, remains poised under the rush, and buys time for receivers. Easily moves outside of tackle and can make the throw on the move. Possesses a quick release, knows where receivers are on the field, and displays zip on shorter throws. Strong enough to withstand the rush in the pocket.
Negatives: Holds the ball too long in the pocket and stares down the primary target. Lacks a sense of timing on throws and misses wide-open receivers. Releases the ball off his back foot and does not consistently follow through.
Analysis: Archer did a solid job his one year as a starter on the college level and offers enough skill to be brought into camp this summer. He?s best suited for a timing or short passing offense and deserves an opportunity to compete for job in camp this summer.
