Cody Kessler  

Height: 6-1   Weight: 215   Age: 26

Born: 5/11/1993 Bakersfield , CA

College: USC

Experience: Season









Draft 2016

Pick No.93

Selected By: Cleveland Browns

Round: 3

Pick (Overall): 31 (93)

Pick Analysis: Physically, there's nothing special about Kessler; he possesses average size, an adequate arm, and fair athleticism (though he can effectively move within the pocket, which is important). The three-year starter could never crack Pac-12 first or second all-conference teams from league coaches, thrice finishing in the honorable mention category. However, Kessler was a finalist for the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award the past two years because he moves the offense efficiently (3,826 yards, completed 69.7 percent of his passes; 3,536, 66.8 percent in 2015) and doesn’t turn the ball over much (39 touchdowns, five interceptions in 2014; 29 TD, 7 INT in 2015). In fact, Kessler owns the school record for career completion percentage at 67.5.
