Ricky Stanzi Scouting Report

Ricky Stanzi QB Iowa #12

Ht: 6’4

Wt: 230

Strengths:
Prototypical size and overall build. Made significant strides throughout his career and capped it off with one of the best senior years in Iowa history. Strong arm. Accuracy is decent and has shown improvement in this area. Developed into a very good decision maker as a senior. A true team leader on and off the field. Three-year starter.
Weaknesses:
Plagued by poor decisions throughout his career, but turned it around as a senior; is he a one-year wonder or did something really click? Limited mobility; not a threat to take off running. Physical tools are good, but nothing about him really stands out.
Comments:
It’s tough not to like Stanzi. He’s a hard worker and a gritty football player. Coaches love having guys like him to lead the team. He definitely has the tools to play in the NFL, but probably not as a long-term starter. In the mid-to-late rounds he could be safe pick and should be able to hang around the league for awhile as a capable backup. Possibly the next Kelly Holcomb.
