Overview

Canfield was a highly touted high school quarterback who never seemed to reach his potential until he was asked to fill in for starter Lyle Moevao during his senior season. He has prototypical NFL size and release but has always struggled to come up big when under pressure. He does a good job of reading coverages and making pre-snap reads but can struggle when things break down and he needs to improvise or make plays on the move. He has enough of an arm to make most of the throws needed in the NFL but lacks the cannon needed to hit small windows or hit receivers in stride on the deep outs. He has enough going for him to give him a chance to be drafted in the later rounds or sign with a team as a priority free agent.

Analysis

Strengths

Canfield is tall with adequate bulk. Possesses a quick release and is a bit of a lefty dart thrower who fits the ball into tight spaces on underneath routes. Does his homework, understands coverage and makes good pre-snap reads. High-character kid who was very productive as a senior.

Weaknesses

Lacks adequate arm strength and will be unable to make all the throws at the next level. Does not have the speed or athleticism to evade more athletic pass rushers and is not a threat to pick up yards on the ground. Struggles to make good decisions when things break down.
