  HGT:  6-3         WGT:  227 YR:     SR         POS:   QB Stats: Passing:  267 COMP, 420 ATT, 23 TD, 9 INT, 3404 YDS, 63.6 PCT Rushing:  74 ATT, 114 YDS, 2 TD, 1.5 AVG, 12 LNG Pros: Good length and bulk Good foot quickness in pocket, average foot quickness for QB outside of pocket Excels at sliding and avoiding Sets quickly on quick throws out of shotgun, pops hips open, points toe Active feet within pocket while deciphering through progressions Demonstrates ability to deliver the ball from different platforms Has a good understanding of properly climbing vertically into pocket Exhibits a quick release (Over ear) Ball stays tight to core (Strong core) Good not great arm strength on intermediate throws (Has shown ability to fit ball in tight windows) Demonstrates ability to step into a constricted pocket Good stride length while gaining depth in drop, along with urgency Able to set and reset in and outside of the pocket Good balance, displays a forward shoulder Sufficient eye manipulation, eyes consistently downfield Displays ability to run through primary and secondary options Makes good decisions Possesses good anticipation Ideally points toe on perimeter throws (Quickly pops hips open) Able to take snaps from both under Center and Shotgun Cons: Poor straight line speed Exhibits hip stiffness outside of pocket Would like to see more consistency in transferring weight on follow through during deep ball throws Puts too much air on deep balls Lacks elite deep ball arm strength Back leg lifts high off ground at times (Needs to stay down) Inconsistent overall accuracy (Short, Intermediate, Deep ball, and outside pocket) Would like to see him get rid of the ball more often instead of taking loss (Sacks) Needs to be cautious of ball security while in the pocket More consistency in following through on Play Action Analysis: Ryan Nassib uses proper judgment within Syracuse’s offense along with doing an excellent job of running through first and secondary options. Nassib displays good footwork in his drop along with an understanding of sliding and avoiding while in a  condensed pocket. Although he lacks elite torque, on intermediate throws its good enough to be effective. I’ve noticed on film that he is inconsistent in his overall accuracy along with the lack of top-tier “deep-ball” arm strength. Nassib has a good understanding of the Quarterback position within the pocket but I do have concerns with the lack of consistency in accuracy along with arm strength. I look forward to seeing Nassib compete during Pre Draft All-Star Bowl Games.
