Biography: Four-year starter awarded All-Conference honors since his sophomore season and three times named Patriot League Offensive Player of the Year. Senior passing totals included 63.9%/3776/34/15 after 65.4%/3838/34/17 as a junior.
Positives: Athletic short yardage passer who makes good decisions on the field. Displays excellent command of the offense, effectively reads the defense, and remains poised throughout the action. Patient in the pocket, gets outside the tackle box to make the throw on the move, or improvises when plays breakdown. Sells the ball fakes, knows where his receivers are on the field, and looks away from covered pass catchers rather than make the errant pass. Displays a sense of timing, accurate with most of his throws, and finds a way to make positive plays.
Negatives: Possesses marginal arm strength, gets wild with his throws down the field, and he cannot drive the deep pass. Forces the issue when he tries to zip the ball into receivers, and his passes have a tendency to sail.
Analysis: Randolph has been terrific on a small-school level as a signal caller who makes plays with his arms as well as his legs. He does not possess the arm strength to be anything other than a backup at the next level, yet he could find a home as a third quarterback for a West Coast or timing offense.
