Name: David Fales

School: San Jose State

Height:6’2”

Weight: 212

40-Yard Dash: 4.99

In a nutshell: Fales is a very average athlete with limited mobility out of the pocket and scattershot accuracy. While possessing many desirable intangibles—leadership, confidence, competitiveness—his actual game is very raw. Just a two-year starter, Fales is still learning to read defences, look off corners and overcome pressure. A project.

Senior Bowl: Fales did not have a great week of practices, and was reportedly sick on Monday and Tuesday. If that’s the case, it might explain the many floating and sailing passes we saw during those outings. He capped off a shaky week with an outstanding game though, completing 6-of-7 passes for 104 yards and a touchdown

Name: Tajh Boyd

School: Clemson

Height: 6’1”

Weight: 222

40-Yard Dash: 4.84

In a nutshell: When Boyd is in a rhythm, he can throw sharp passes, especially on shorter routes, but gets shaky under heavy pressure. Boyd is elusive out of the pocket but prone to ditch it too early. Does not see the whole field and sometimes struggles to read defenses. Durability is a concern.

 

Senior Bowl: Boyd struggled in practices, and even among a shaky group of quarterbacks, his accuracy and overall play was unremarkable. You could tell he was not yet comfortable under center as well, and will take time to adapt to a pro-style offense. Boyd completed 7 of 16 passes for 31 yards and one interception in the game.

Name: Logan Thomas

School: Virginia Tech

Height: 6’6”

Weight: 248

40-Yard Dash: 4.61

In a nutshell: Athletically, Thomas is an incredible prospect. His size, build and speed excite coaches, scouts and media across the NFL. Unfortunately, that’s most of what he has going for him. His ball placement is all over the place, his touch is almost non-existent and he doesn’t see enough of the field. Thomas has the raw pieces but is a real project.

Senior Bowl: Much like his career, Thomas’ Senior Bowl experience was a lot of buildup for naught. Despite looking impressive at the weigh-in, Thomas was inconsistent and streaky in practice, showing poor footwork and telegraphing his throws. Thomas also completed 4-of-5 passes in the game for a whopping 17 yards and finished with a -39 yards rushing.

Player Analysis: Brett Smith, QB, Wyoming

Name: Brett Smith

School: Wyoming

Height: 6’2”

Weight: 206

40-Yard Dash: N/A

In a nutshell: An incredibly underrated prospect, Smith didn’t even get a combine invite. He’s a quick, mobile quarterback who does a great job making his reads and adjusting based on coverage, but can be a bit too confident at times. He’s prone to try and fit the ball in tight coverage he should avoid.

Vs Hawaii: In what was easily Smith’s best game of the year—and his career—the Wyoming quarterback destroyed the Hawaii defense to the tune of 498 yards and seven touchdowns, adding in a 51-yard touchdown run which showed off his mobility. His eight touchdowns were the most by a single player in Mountain West history.

Name: A.J. McCarron

School: Alabama

Height: 6’3”

Weight: 220

40-Yard Dash: 4.94

In a nutshell: McCarron is comfortable in a pro-style offense, both under center and in a shotgun formation. He has solid accuracy on short-to-intermediate throws, though McCarron has a tendency to be off target on longer throws, forcing receivers to adjust too much. Does not have a huge arm, and benefitted from having an excellent offense around him.

 

Sugar Bowl: McCarron posted some great yardage and touchdown totals, but turned the ball over three times—two interceptions and one fumble which was returned for a touchdown. Both interceptions set up scores by Oklahoma as well. McCarron threw some really nice passes overall but made far too many mistakes.
