Tony Pike
Round 6, Pick 204
Position: QB
Class: 5Sr
School: Cincinnati
Conference: Big East
HT: 6-5.5
WT: 223
40 Time: 4.91
Biography: Two-year starter awarded All-Conference honors since his junior campaign. Totals last season included 62.4%/2520/29/6 after 61.4%/2407/11/19/11 the prior year. Missed assorted games over the last two seasons with a variety of injuries.

Positives: High-percentage passer with a nice control of the offense. Remains poised in the pocket, senses the rush, and steps up to avoid pressure. Sells ball fakes, patient, and buys time for receivers. Accurate and puts touch on throws when necessary. On the same page as pass catchers, he does not make poor decisions and displays solid pocket sense. He does an outstanding job controlling and leading the offense.

Negatives: Possesses a thin build, lacks classic pocket stature and has been fragile the past two years. Throws with an elongated motion and does not have a gun for an arm. Tends to hold the ball a bit long in the pocket.

Analysis: Over the past two seasons when Pike has been healthy and on the field, he's been one of college football more consistent quarterbacks. He possesses the skills and mental intangibles to play at the next level. Pike must tighten up his throwing motion, add bulk to his frame, and show durability on the field if he's to be anything other than a third quarterback for an NFL roster.

Projection: 4th
