Scouting Report

SIZE:
JJ has very good size for a 2021 Pro Style QB at 6'2" 180 lbs. He’s difficult to contain within the pocket. Very lethal while on the run, attacking the defense with precision passing. High release point, adding height to his throws.
ACCURACY:
This is a major strength area for JJ. His throws are right on the mark, with good location and timing. He works within the flow of the game. Threw for a 76% completion rate this past season, leading his team to a state championship.
ARM STRENGTH:
A very deceptive passer, able to let it rip while on the run. He can extend the field with his vertical throws or thread the needle within the secondary.
RELEASE:
Throws with a high release point, an over the top delivery with a three quarter compact extension. The comes off quickly, restricting the defense’s reaction time.
THROW ON RUN:
This is where JJ separates himself from the pack. He’s can crush a defense with his ability to keep a play alive while on the run. He can hurt you with either his legs or his arm, very hard to defend.
FOOTWORK:
Smooth flow on his drop backs and set ups. He’s capable of serving as a Dual Threat, with quickness, elusiveness and vision. A nice compliment to his passing game. A playmaker who can take over a game.
POISE:
JJ’s a winner on the field, a true competitor who gives his all. He’s aware of defensive pressure and is not fazed by the noise around him. Led team to a 13-1 record, earning a 7A State Championship.
POCKET PRESENCE:
Very good agility in and around the pocket, able to get away from traffic while seeking out a safe zone for himself.
DECISION MAKING:
He does a nice job working through his options while surveying the field. Able to make smart decisions while on the run.
TOUCH:
JJ does nice work adjusting the velocity of his throw depending on the passing situation. His deep passes include solid trajectory with just enough air underneath.
