Tyler Russell

School: Mississippi State
Position: QB
Positive: Started five games last season after struggling with a concussion early in the year, then a shoulder injury late in the campaign. Passing totals included 875 yards, 5 TDs, and 3 INTs. Junior totals included 2897 yards, 24 TDs, and 10 INTs. Big, strong-armed pocket passer who displayed a large amount of next-level skill prior to his injury. Remains poised under the rush, keeps his eyes downfield, and steps up in the pocket to buy time. Displays a big-time arm, zipping the outs or driving deep passes with speed. Possesses a powerful over-the-top motion and gets the ball through the tight windows. Displays a sense of timing on throws. Easily withstands the rush, but at the same time gets outside the pocket to make throws on the move.
Negative: Does not consistently follow through when delivering the ball. At times holds the ball too long in the pocket. Not an elusive quarterback.
Analysis: Russell was underrated coming into this season before injuries derailed his development. He possesses the size and arm strength to play at the next level and at the same time shows good wherewithal for the position. He's a practice-squad prospect that could compete for a job in the NFL if healthy.
