West Virginia Quarterback Jarrett Brown
Jarrett Brown: No. 16, QB. 6-3, 222
A physically gifted quarterback, Brown has the athleticism to buy time in the pocket and make plays with his feet. He displays good coordination on the move. Creating big plays when things break down, he does a nice job keeping his eyes down the field. He's a dual run/pass threat once he gets on the perimeter. Looks very comfortable when asked to improvise. He possesses a strong arm, but his accuracy is erratic. Doesn't have the most compact of throwing motions. His passes underneath tend to nose dive on him and fall at the receiver's feet. Lacks awareness in the pass game and struggles going through his progressions quickly from the pocket. Doesn't consistently get rid of the ball on time, looking more comfortable using his athletic ability to break containment and create outside.
Isn't a very efficient decision-maker. He has a tendency to force the ball into coverage. Brown consistently makes up his mind before the play, stares down receivers and tries to fit the football into tight areas. A turnover-prone signal-caller, he isn't ready for the NFL from a mental standpoint. Overall, his athletic skill set is impressive, but he still has a long way to go as a pocket passer. Looks more like a developmental guy at the next level.
