John Skelton

School: Fordham
Position: QB
Bio: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors after sophomore and senior seasons. Totals last year included 64.4%/3708/26/10. Junior numbers included 61.3%/2605/15/7.
Positive: Classic pocket passer with excellent size and arm strength. Patient, displays a nice sense of knowing where his receivers are on the field and remains poised. Goes through receiver progressions, controls the situation and possesses a quick release. Easily gets rid of the ball with a flick of his wrist, fires the pass into targets or easily drives passes downfield. Sells the ball fakes, buys as much time as necessary, and gets outside the pocket, keeping his eyes downfield. Loses nothing throwing on the run. Passes have great speed, yet he also puts touch on throws when necessary.
Negative: Holds the ball long pocket and does not do a good job sensing pressure. Changes his point of release, which adversely affects his accuracy. Has a set tendency to stare down the primary pass catcher.
Analysis: Skelton possesses the measurables and arm strength necessary to play at the next level yet must significantly improve his accuracy and do a better job throwing with proper mechanics. He had the strongest arm at the combine yet at the same time was one of the more inaccurate quarterbacks in Indianapolis. Skelton offers a great amount of upside potential and is worth a late round choice for a team that wants to develop a passer three years down the road.
