Ricky Stanzi   # QB

Height: 6-4   Weight: 228   Age: 28

Born: 9/3/1987 Mentor , OH

College: Iowa

Experience: 5th season

High School: Lake Catholic HS [Mentor, OH]









Draft 2011

Pick No.135

Selected By: Kansas City Chiefs

Round: 5

Pick (Overall): 4 (135)

Pick Analysis: Stanzi possesses the mental makeup and on-field moxy of a starting NFL quarterback but still has quite a bit of development left before he's ready. Can be a playmaker when using his feet to buy extra time, scrambling to throw, and allowing receivers more time to break free. Is accurate on shorter passes but must improve consistency on intermediate and deep routes. Flashes the ability to go through his progressions but ultimately still locks onto primary targets and forces too many throws. If Stanzi can improve his accuracy, awareness and footwork, could be a good one.
