Overview

Stanzi possesses the mental makeup and on-field moxy of a starting NFL quarterback but still has quite a bit of development left before he's ready. Can be a playmaker when using his feet to buy extra time, scrambling to throw, and allowing receivers more time to break free. Is accurate on shorter passes but must improve consistency on intermediate and deep routes. Flashes the ability to go through his progressions but ultimately still locks onto primary targets and forces too many throws. If Stanzi can improve his accuracy, awareness and footwork, could be a good one.

Analysis

Strengths

Stanzi displays great leadership qualities, toughness and intangibles. Can escape the pocket, improvise and make plays. Has the mobility necessary to evade the outside rush, climb the pocket, and buy more time. Has enough athleticism to pick up first downs with his legs. Displays good accuracy in the short passing game. Has enough arm strength.

Weaknesses

Decision-making must improve. Takes too many chances and puts the ball in harms way too often. Unsound footwork leads to inaccuracy on intermediate and deep throws. Needs to do a better job of leading receivers. Doesn't have a quick release and can hold the ball a tick too long.
