Takes what the defense gives him; doesn't force throws
Solid accuracy down the field
Absolutely outstanding timing; throws ball before receiver even gets into break
Lacks some bulk in his body frame
Extremely weak arm strength
Lacks agility and athleticism; can't evade a pass rush
Somewhat of a statue in the pocket
Floats deep ball a little too much
Not a very good passer on the run
Throws difficult routes - but with unimpressive velocity/talent
Highly limited skill set
Competitiveness hasn't been tested yet
Older than the average prospect (will be a 24-year-old rookie)
Summary: Pike projects strictly as a career backup in the NFL. He simply doesn't possess even an average arm to be a starter. Pike can be somewhat reliable since he makes great decisions and is highly intelligent, but he lacks a lot of talent, and you can't coach talent. I project Pike to come off the board between the third and fifth rounds.
Player Comparison: Todd Collins. Collins has a weak arm, but is an extremely smart quarterback and a reliable backup.
@kklunert I agree Wentz is better than Kessler at this point ( not by alot to be honest ) Once teams got tape on him he regressed ALOT ... His arm and game savvy is good but he looked average at best... I watched D. Prescott all thru his sr year in college and thought he was a better QB but he made a bad choice getting a DUI... You are 110% right on them having to hit on their draft picks... Titans hit with J. Conklin when many said they reached big time for him...sometimes you get lucky but I thought he was just as good as Tunsil & Stanley ...
