Agreed. He can play the option and he's one tough SOB.
After the game when they said he only had one interception for the year I looked him up a bit more. Didn't throw the ball a ton, and his completion percentage dropped a bunch from 67% to 63% this year. But in an offense that preaches limiting turnovers he could be a good backup QB. 24/1 TD/INT ratio is impressive for sure.
Most draft analysts have him as either a 6th/7th round prospect or even an undrafted free agent. If this is the case a late flyer on a kid with limited upside but a possible long term backup is something I could get behind.
EDIT: Just saw he's only 6'1". Not tall enough to play QB in the NFL. Forget what I wrote earlier.
