SIZE:
AJ has excellent size for a 2021 Pro Style QB at 6'3" 190 lbs. He stands in the pocket with a tall platform, able to survey the field for potential targets. A quick hitting QB who gets the ball out quickly, working out of a spread formation. Good height on his delivery with a high release point.

He throws with an over the top delivery, most throws are made with a fully extended arm motion while others at three quarters, giving him a compact quick delivery. Sound mechanics as goes through the motion.
THROW ON RUN:
AJ's most comfortable within the pocket, but can get to the outside when needed. An athletic QB with good lateral movement.

POISE:

Good sense of the pressure around him, able to set up or side step away from traffic. I would to see more lateral movement, opening up added passing lanes.
