Late developing passer whose improvement in poise and accuracy gave scouts reason to consider him in the late rounds or free agency. A gritty player who offered to switch positions two years ago because he was disappointed in his own performance, Tafralis showed significant improvement each of the past two seasons. Despite his development, there remain legitimate concerns about his arm strength and ability to escape pressure.



Positives: Better football player than his measureables would indicate. ... Has improved significantly over the past two seasons. ... Has enough arm strength to zip short and intermediate passes and flashes good accuracy at these levels. ... Quick set-up and delivery. ... Developed into a respected leader after early struggles with his confidence. Negatives: May be a product of this system. ... Lacks preferred height for the position. ... Marginal arm strength overall. ... Can zip the 10-15-yard passes, but has to build up for deeper throws, leading to some floating passes that will be intercepted in the NFL. ... Marginal agility to avoid the pass rush and buy time in the pocket. ... Took most of his snaps for the Spartans in a shotgun formation and may lack the athleticism to quickly adapt to a more traditional drop-back passer.
