Overview

Pike is a bit of a product of the system that has been in place with the Cincinnati Bearcats. He gets a lot of completions due to their dink and dunk passing attack that spreads the field out and relies primarily on their passing game to move the ball. He knows how to read coverages but will get stuck on his primary receiver at times rather than go to his second or third option. He is effective throwing from the pocket or when rolling to his right but will struggle when rolling left and having to throw back against the grain. He has struggled to stay healthy for a full season in college and will need to bulk up if he wants to survive the rigors of a full NFL season.

Analysis

Strengths

Pike has good character and has battled back from injuries. Has ideal height to scan the field and does a good job working through his progressions and reading coverages. Very accurate in the short, underneath passing game. Was very productive playing in a spread offense in college. Shows very good touch and feel.

Weaknesses

Lacks the necessary bulk to withstand a pounding at the next level. Has been injured and durability is a concern. Earned his living underneath in college and does not possess prototypical arm strength to drive the ball downfield on the deep out. Lacks the speed to pickup chunks of yardage with his feet.
