Pat Devlin Scouting Report
Pat Devlin
Pat Devlin - Delaware (HT: 6-3⅜ - WT: 226)
Combine 40: N/A - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 5 of 20

Positives: Strong arm, not elite, but capable of making every throw that will be asked of him... Throws a great deep ball, very good arc on his throws... Extremely accurate, throws precision passes on a regular basis... Knows how to throw to places that only his receiver can make a play... Sets his receivers up to get yards after catch... Excels throwing crossing patterns and deep slants to the middle of the field.... Only threw three interceptions in 384 attempts this year... Picture perfect throwing motion, very fluid motion... Gets rid of the ball really quickly... Tough player, has continually played through injuries throughout his career... Good mobility in the pocket, does a great job avoiding pressure... Does a great job setting his feet to throw after scrambling.

Negatives: Inconsistent game to game, has some really big games and some really bad ones... Footwork has been problematic, gets out of position and has to re-adjust within the pocket... Drop steps could use some work... Needs to do a better job at reading coverages at the line of scrimmage... Gambles too much rather than throwing the ball away... Checks down to his underneath receiver far too often... Gets Joe Flacco comparisons due to transferring from high FBS program to play for Delaware, but isn't even close to him as far as NFL prospect... Playing at an FCS school can only hurt his draft stock... Will need time to develop, a two to three year project before he contributes in the NFL.
