Biography: Connecticut transfer who threw for 58.8%/2551 yards/21 TDs/18 interceptions last season. Junior totals at UConn included 60%/471/5/2 after he had 63.6%/1354/6/4 as a sophomore. Dismissed from the program for multiple violations of team rules.
Positives: Strong-armed pocket passer who flashed skill the past three seasons. Patient, buys time for receivers and keeps his eyes downfield looking for the open receiver. Waits for pass catchers to come free before releasing the ball. Possesses a quick release, passes have nice speed and puts air under deep throws. Poised under pressure, senses the rush and steps up to avoid it. Throws good corner and fade patterns, displaying a sense of timing.
Negatives: Stares down the primary target and is slow going to secondary receivers. Does not consistently find the safety and forces the ball to covered targets. Off the field violations have raised red flags.
Analysis: Endres played solid football at Connecticut as a reserve quarterback and then had a solid senior season at Slippery Rock last year. He possesses the size and arm strength to play at the next level yet but must improve his reads and decision-making.
