B.J. Coleman scouting report

B.J. Coleman QB Chattanooga #19
Ht: 6’3″

Wt: 232

 
Strengths:
Prototypical size. Strong arm; can easily make all the throws. Decent fundamentals when he’s not pressured. Tough player who can take a hit in the pocket.
Weaknesses:
Not a fluid athlete; looks very mechanical in all of his movements; throwing motion is technically sound, but looks very choppy and almost over-exaggerated at times. Accuracy is inconsistent, especially on deep routes. Sort of an awkward throwing motion; tends to throw from an open stance, especially when rushed. Also short-arms his throws when pressured. Noticeably flustered by pressure; dances in the pocket and loses his fundamentals. Tends to lock on to his primary target. Missed end of senior year with shoulder injury.
Comments:
Coleman has the raw physical tools to play at the next level, but he is purely a developmental prospect. He needs to become more comfortable and consistent in the pocket, and his accuracy must improve before he’s ready to set foot on an NFL field.
