Tyler Sheehan
Position: QB
Class: 5Sr
School: Bowling Green
Conference: Mid-American
HT: 6-3
WT: 223
40 Time: 4.81
Biography: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a sophomore. Totals last season included 64.9%/4051/27/7 after 2610 passing yards and 20 touchdowns as a junior.

Positives: High percentage passer with terrific pocket sense and field awareness. Natural looking off the safety and goes to secondary targets. Poised under the rush, steps up to avoid pressure and buys time for receivers. Effectively goes to check down receivers if nothing is available. Makes proper decisions in the pocket and does a nice job commanding the offense.

Negatives: Lacks arm strength and shows little zip on throws. Not elusive and struggles to escape the rush.

Analysis: In college Sheehan was the beneficiary of record-breaking receiver Freddie Barnes and he lacks the pure physical skills to play at the next level. He's a timing passer best throwing in the underneath coverage and could be a back up in a West Coast offense.
