Zach Mettenberger

School: LSU
Position: QB
Positive: Started 12 games last season completing 64.9% of his throws for 3082 yards and 22 TDs. Missed the team's bowl game after tearing his left ACL in the regular-season finale. Junior totals included 2609 passing yards. Started his college career Georgia before transferring to Butler Community College then making his way to LSU. Strong-armed pocket passer with a large upside. Stands strong in the pocket, possesses terrific stature, and the arm strength necessary to make all the throws. For the most part does a solid job reading opposing defenses, goes to secondary targets rather than forcing the ball into covered receivers, and puts touch on throws when necessary. Easily withstands the rush, zips the outs to the intended target, and effectively places passes into receivers hands. Can throw it on a rope 40 yards downfield, loses nothing passing on the move, and gets the ball through the tight spots. Sells ball fakes, resilient, and displays timing on throws.
Negative: Holds the ball a bit long in the pocket and can be indecisive. Struggles escaping the rush or avoiding defenders. Must improve his ball placement and all too often makes receivers work for catches. Rattled under the rush.
Analysis: Mettenberger possesses the physical skills to start at the next level and carry a franchise. Still very rough around the edges, he needs to improve his timing, pass placement, and must be quicker thinking on his feet.
