Overview

Skinner is a good college quarterback who will struggle to make a team at the next level. He is undersized for the position and his low release can cause a lot of balls to get knocked down at the line of scrimmage. He is accurate and can make all the throws when he has time to step into the throw but is not as effective when he has to extend the pocket. He appears to stick with his pre-snap reads and will force some throws when the coverage changes at the snap.


Strengths

Skinner is an experienced signal caller who spends a lot of time in the film room. Diagnoses coverage well from the line of scrimmage and audibles effectively. Gets the ball out fast and is very accurate. Steps into his throws and has good arm strength.

Weaknesses

Skinner is a hair under six feet which will make it difficult to find throwing lanes at the next level. His three-quarter delivery, coupled with his height, will lead to a lot of batted balls. Focuses too much on pre-snap reads and forces throws. Mechanics break down on the run and he loses his arm strength and accuracy.
