tends to predetermine some throws and relies on a lot of back shoulder patterns, something that got him in trouble against auburn and alabama. has not shown the consistency to lead his team through the air in tough road environments when the ground game is shut down.
Work in progress as a passer but has a live arm and good field vision. His footwork is inconsistent and he loses accuracy when his feet are not set.
displays an ability to use his eyes and hold defenders and has a quick memory to move on from mistakes and not let the negative plays linger. overall, he has a much more natural feel in the passing game than in 2013 and appears in complete control of that offense.
When he does step into his throws, Prescott can deliver strikes. He's a very dangerous runner, combining aggression, agility and the power to break arm tackles.
tim tebow, ex-broncos, jets, patriots - it is the natural comparison, beyond just the connection to mississippi state head coach dan mullen, who was florida's offensive coordinator when tebow was in gainesville. although prescott has a slightly better arm and more consistent mechanics, he and tebow grade similar in several categories, including composure, mobility, power and leadership.
IN OUR VIEW
Scouts are most impressed with his development above the neck, showing above average awareness as a passer, recognizing things quickly and working through his progressions to easily load and fire.
evaluators knew he was a bruising runner, using his size, quickness and toughness to run over defenders, but prescott has shown a much improved feel in the passing game, displaying anticipation, decisiveness and above average awareness to recognize things quickly and react accordingly. he deserves credit for the positive steps he has taken, but a lot of evaluators aren't sold quite yet as prescott tends to predetermine his throws and has the bad habit of locking onto his targets, missing open reads downfield.
