Ricky Stanzi Scouting Report
Ricky Stanzi
Ricky Stanzi - Iowa (HT: 6-4⅜ - WT: 223)
Combine 40: 4.93 - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 10 of 20

Positives: Accuracy took a nice leap as a senior, with his completion percentage jumping eight points from his junior year (56 to 64 percent)... Has worked on his throwing motion in the past year which has paid dividends... Improved decision maker as a senior... A true game manager, understands his offense, the players around him, and has a high football IQ to boot... Has a short memory, doesn't get down on himself... Great intangibles, a team-first, high-character player... A winner; has shown the ability to lead his team from behind in the fourth quarter... Good size and frame for the position... Consistent, threw a touchdown pass in every single game in 2010... Played in a pro-style offense under Kirk Ferentz.

Negatives: Average arm strength, nothing spectacular about this throws... Would like to see him lead his receivers better in the middle of the field, doesn't set up his receivers very well... Footwork has been a problem, he's inconsistent with his drop steps and doesn't always set his feet before throwing... Prior to this year, he appeared turnover prone... Not a great runner, gets chased from behind and doesn't have any open field moves when asked to take off with the ball... Limited ceiling because of his average physical talents... Will be 24 years old at the start of the 2011 NFL season.
