Zach Collaros
Position: QB
Class:  Sr
School: Cincinnati
HT: 5'11"
WT: 216 lbs.
40 Time: 4.8
Conference: Big East
Biography: Two-year starter who finished with 61%/1940 yards/15 TDs /10 interceptions as a senior after junior totals of 58.7%/2902/26/14.

Positives: Elusive college quarterback who lacks the physical skills for the next level. Effectively commands and controls the offense, displays a good sense of anticipation and does a solid job with his defensive reads. Displays good pocket awareness, senses pressure and steps up to avoid it. Possesses a sense of knowing where his targets are on the field, quickly locates the open receiver and displays timing and touch on throws. Poised under the rush, buys time for receivers and waits until the last moment before releasing the ball. Natural looking off the safety, displays the ability to avoid defenders and make plays with his legs.

Negatives: Lacks pocket stature and the ability to withstand the rush. High of the mark when he tries to put extra velocity on throws. Loses accuracy and speed on throws the further out to the flanks or downfield he passes the ball. Not a sturdy quarterback who can withstand the rush and easily brought down under pressure.

Analysis: Collaros was a solid college quarterback who effectively led his team yet does not have the size to be anything other than a backup in the NFL. He could find a spot as a third passer in a timing or West Coast offense.
