Positives: Athletic small school passer with marginal next level skills. Displays good pocket awareness, knows where receivers are on the field and, for the most part, makes good decisions. Displays a sense of timing on throws, quick-footed with the ability to escape the rush and offers a quick release. Puts touch on throws when necessary. Looks away from covered targets and takes the safe underneath outlet. Surveys the field, buys time for receivers and goes through progressions.
Negatives: Cannot withstand the rush in the pocket. Lacks a big-time arm and usually high of the mark when he tries to put extra speed on throws. Loses velocity on passes throwing on the move.
Analysis: Witt was a solid small school passer who made the most of his abilities. He lacks the physical skills to be a starter at the next level yet could be a third quarterback for a timing or West Coast offense.
