Scott Tolzien Scouting Report
Scott Tolzien
Scott Tolzien - Wisconsin (HT: 6-2 - WT: 209)
Combine 40: N/A - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 12 of 20

Positives: Above-average arm strength, puts good zip on his throws and does a good job getting velocity on his throws to the sideline... Led the nation in completion percentage in 2010... A reasonably quick release, won't have to adjust his motion... Does a good job of selling the play action... Throws a tight spiral and a very catchable ball... Improved decision maker as a senior, rarely forces bad passes and takes good care of the football... Heady player, a game manager who understands the X's and O's part of the game... Above-average mobility, can take off and run for a first down when under pressure... A winner, led Wisconsin to a 21-5 record as a starter the past two years.

Negatives: A little inconsistent with his ball placement... Throws off balance too much, doesn't set his feet when throwing on the run... Takes too many sacks, waits for his receivers too long before trying to make a play himself... Has a thin frame, could stand to add some weight to his frame... Likely to take the same career backup role as former Badger quarterbacks Brooks Bollinger, Jim Sorgi, and John Stocco... Was rarely asked to win games on his own, offense was tailored toward the running game... Will be a 24 year old rookie... Upside is limited because of his lack of athletic traits, is more of a game manager... Won't blow any teams away in workouts.
