Has the ability to remain poised and calm under pressure when the pocket begins to collapse. Has the awareness to avoid sacks by knowing when to take off for a run or fire the ball of his back foot. He has a proven history of coming up clutch in big games and big moments. Throws with anticipation, touch and solid velocity when working with tight throwing windows. Has a tight spiral and though at times his arm strength is questionable. He has a great ability to pick up yardage on ground in called running plays. Knows how to avoid contact when running downfield and knows how to absorb a sack with pressure.
