Carson Wentz

School: North Dakota State
Position: QB
Positive: Two-year starter awarded all-America honors as a junior. Posted 1651 yards passing and 17 TDs in 8 games last season when he missed half the year with a broken bone in his wrist. Junior totals included 3111 yards passing and 25 TDs. Smart, tough signal caller with tremendous upside. Consistent in all areas of the game. Stands strong in the pocket, displays good awareness and quickly locates the open wide out. Effectively reads the defense, remains poised under the rush and buys as much time as necessary for receivers. Effectively sets up screen passes, displays a sense of timing and does not have targets waiting on the ball. Throws with solid fundamentals, for the most part accurate and does not make receivers work hard to come away with the catch. Goes through progressions, will take the 2nd or 3rd option rather than force the ball into targets and does not have mental lapses. Possesses a big time arm, displays speed on all his throws but also puts touch on passes when necessary. Smooth rolling outside the pocket, keeps his eyes down the field and loses nothing on his throws. Spreads the ball around and uses all his receivers.
Negative: Does not do a good job sensing the backside rush. Throws with a wide base and is often high of the mark. Has limited starting experience on the small school level.
Analysis: Wentz was consistently productive under center at North Dakota State and possesses outstanding physical skills as well as mental wherewithal for the next level. He may need time before he's NFL ready and there will be bumps in the road but if properly coached Wentz should be a productive Sunday quarterback with a long career.
