Andy Dalton Scouting Report
Andy Dalton
Andy Dalton - TCU (HT: 6-2 - WT: 215)
Combine 40: 4.87 - Position Rank: 6 of 20

Positives: Above-average arm strength... High velocity thrower... Above average accuracy, throws are often between the numbers... Throws well while scrambling... Has been productive as a four year starter... Sells the pump fake... Good footwork... Does a great job going through his progressions... Rarely throws into double coverage... On the field leader, a good field general... Teammates feed off his energy... A winner; only lost three games as a starter at TCU, set the TCU record for career wins by a quarterback with 44... Able to make plays with his feet, above-average speed for the position... Routinely picks up first downs with his feet when asked to scramble... Accumulated over 1,600 yards rushing and 22 rushing touchdowns during his career.

Negatives: Has a three-quarters release that will concern teams... Will turn 24 during his rookie year... Comes from a spread system, is far from a finished product as an NFL passer... Needs to learn to take snaps from under center... Has a low ceiling, doesn't possess any rare physical gifts to set him apart from other quarterbacks... Probably will never develop into an NFL starter... When throwing off balance, throws will sail over receiver's heads... Sometimes looks to run too early rather than keeping his eyes downfield to make a throw... Struggled in the Senior Bowl and suffered a small contusion during the game.
