Matt Nichols

School: Eastern Washington
Position: QB
Bio: Four-year starter awarded All-Conference honors since his sophomore season and named as an All-American last year. Senior totals included 65.1%/3830/33/6 when he was named Big Sky Offensive Player of the Year. Junior totals included 61%/3293/21/14 after 63.6%/3744/33/9 as a sophomore when he was initially named as the conference
Positive: Productive college passer with the skills necessary to back up at the next level. Patient in the pocket, goes through receiver progressions, and displays the ability to get outside of tackle and make the throw on the move. Sells ball fakes, senses the rush and goes through receiver progressions. Displays a solid arm in the short and intermediate field.
Negative: Not an elusive quarterback who avoids defenders. Makes some poor decisions under the rush. Must improve his overall pass placement and accuracy. Really cannot drive the ball downfield.
Analysis: Nichols was a top small-school quarterback who benefited from a wide open system that lined up three and four receivers with regularity. He offers adequate size and could be useful as a backup in a timing offense that throws a lot of underneath patterns.
