Dan Persa

School: Northwestern
Position: QB
Bio: Two-year starter awarded all-conference honors after his junior season. Passing totals last season included 73.4%/2376 yards/17 TDs/7 interceptions. Junior totals included passing numbers of 73.5%/2581/15/4 with an additional 519 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground.
Positive: Dynamic college quarterback who lacks the skills and measurables to play at the next level. Patient in the pocket, buys time for receivers and remains poised under the rush. Elusive, quick-footed and gets outside the pocket to avoid the rush, all the while keeping his eyes downfield in search of open receivers. Creates opportunities for himself and pass catchers. Tough, takes the big hit in order to get the ball away and picks up yardage with his legs up the field. Possesses a quick release and the ball immediately gets out of his hands. On the same page as his receivers. Does an outstanding job leading the offense.
Negative: Short and struggles to see over the offensive line. Has marginal arm strength, passes lacks speed and he struggles getting the throw through the tight spots. Not a strong ballcarrier.
Analysis: Persa was a terrific college player and a fearless quarterback who always found a way to produce positive yardage. He lacks the size and arm strength for the next level. He could squeeze his way onto a roster that projects him as a Wildcat quarterback.
