Overview

McElroy could quickly emerge as a quality backup NFL quarterback but does not possess the physical attributes of a starter. Fully grasps the mental side of the game and has succeeded in multiple pressure-packed situations but simply does not have the arm strength to force and NFL defense to defend the entire field. Comfortable making NFL-type reads, accurate when hitting short to intermediate targets, and capable of moving around in the pocket. However, we don't expect him to be able to hit the deep out or zip the ball into tight coverage at the next level, so McElroy carries a late Day 3 grade.

Analysis

Strengths

McElroy has rare intangibles. Team-first player who works tirelessly at practice and in the film room to master an offense. Can scan the field and run through his progressions. Will throw receivers open. Shows good accuracy in the short to intermediate passing game. Quick release. Good pocket mobility and drop discipline.

Weaknesses

Does not possess the physical measurables of an NFL starting quarterback. Sub-average size coupled with less-than-adequate arm strength. Will not be able to fit the ball into tight spots down the field at the next level. Deep ball floats on him. Below average speed and not a threat to pick up yards with his legs.
