Christian Ponder

School: Florida State
Position: QB
Bio: Three-year starter who totaled 61.5%/2044/20/8 as a senior when he struggled late in the year with an elbow injury. Junior totals included 68.8%/2717/14/7. Suffered a season-ending shoulder injury nine games into the season.
Positive: Smart, poised pocket passer with terrific awareness. Patient, displays a sense of timing, and hits receivers as they leave their breaks. Stands strong in the pocket, throws a catchable ball, and puts touch on passes when necessary. Has adequate arm strength and throws the out patterns well. Senses pressure, steps up to avoid it, and knows where his receivers are on the field. Looks away from cover targets and goes to secondary receivers. Terrific job commanding and controlling the offense. Flashes the ability to place passes where only his receiver has a chance at the ball. Mobile and can get outside the pocket to make throws on the move. Neg Off the mark when he tries to get extra speed on throws. Cannot drive the deep pass. Long throws tend to float and hang. Struggled with injuries two consecutive seasons. Analysis: Ponder is a thinking man's quarterback with terrific intangibles and leadership skills. His physical ability is adequate for the next level, but the injuries that have mounted the past two years and his lack of durability makes him a risk. Ponder watched his draft stock drop 2010 but he will get a chance to make an impact at the next level because of his physical and mental attributes. Full Name: Josh Portis School: California-PA. QB Ht: 6-3 Wt: 211 40: 4.62 Year: 6Sr Bio: Two-year starter who transferred to Cal-Pa. from Maryland after beginning his college career at Florida. Passing totals last season included 61.2%/2650/33/7 after he threw for 3421 yards and 36 touchdowns as a junior. Athletic quarterback who's been very productive on the small school level. Quickly sets up in the pocket, goes through receiver progressions, and displays a sense of timing. Puts air under passes, throwing tight spirals and a catchable ball. Takes the safe underneath route if nothing else is available. Shows the ability to scramble and buy time for wide outs. Puts speed on throws and hits receivers in stride. Makes good decisions under pressure and does not force throws.
Negative: Does not drive deep throws. Not a tall passer in the pocket and seemingly has trouble seeing over the line at times. Occasionally stares down the primary target and does not find the safety. Off the field issues will raise red-flags.
Analysis: Portis is a physically gifted quarterback with the arm strength to play at the next level. He possesses a solid game and has a real opportunity to make it as a third signal caller.
