Scouting Report

SIZE:
Brayden has very good size for a 2023 Dual Threat QB at 6’3” 200 lbs. He's a playmaker who seeks out big play opportunities downfield. Works methodically as he attacks the defense at every level. A tall lengthy QB who will add bulk onto his frame.
ACCURACY:
His throws reach his receivers with good ball placement, accuracy and timing. Whether his passes are made at short or long range, Brayden maintains his accuracy at every distance. Tight rotational spin on the ball.
ARM STRENGTH:
A strong armed QB who can fire it in on a rope, or lay it out on a fly route with a soft toss. His vertical passing game can’t go unnoticed by defenses. Tight trajectory at long range.
RELEASE:
An over the top delivery with a fully extended arm motion. This gives his throws added height and distance. An arm motion with is fluid and consistent.
THROW ON RUN:
For a QB of his size, Brayden is super athletic. Displays excellent mobility as he works to the outside of the pocket, getting his feet in front of him and in-line with his target.
FOOTWORK:
Very good speed and quickness with the ability to elude would-be tacklers. He’s very dangerous to opposing defenses because of his ability to serve as a legit dual threat while on the go. Well balanced stride on his dropbacks and set ups.
POISE:
His confidence level is way up there. Can do just about anything he wants against opposing defenses.
POCKET PRESENCE:
Very difficult to contain within the pocket. Displaying very good agility and mobility. Able to step up in the pocket or roll out for added space.
DECISION MAKING:
Very good understanding of the game. Plays with the ability to work through his progressions with very decisive throws.
TOUCH:
Very impressed in his ability to adjust the velocity of his throws. From his soft deliver on the fade routes, to his laser strike throws over the middle.
