T.J. Yates scouting report

T.J. Yates QB North Carolina
Ht: 6’3″

Wt: 219

Strengths:
Adequate height and overall size. Four-year starter; broke numerous school records. A very intelligent quarterback. Smart with the football; makes very few ill-advised throws. Shows excellent accuracy and short and intermediate routes. Adequate arm strength.
Weaknesses:
Missed five games with a broken ankle in 2008. Limited athletically, not a threat to make plays with his feet. Lacks accuracy on deeper throws – this is where most of his interceptions seem to come from. Very average across the board – does everything well, but nothing great. Already 23 years old.
Comments:
Yates is a fringe prospect with very little upside. However, he’s an intelligent player with enough ability to make a roster. He has the type of skill set that could allow him to carve out a nice career as a backup.
