Full Name: Charlie Whitehurst School: Clemson Pos: QB
Ht: 6-4.5 Wt: 223 40: 4.78 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Moved into the starting lineup as a redshirt freshman. All-Conference selection two of the past three seasons. Senior passing totals included 66.9%/2,278/11 after a junior campaign of 50.7%/2,067/7/17. Career-best passing yardage numbers of 3,561 came as a sophomore.
Pos: Nice-sized athletic passer with an inconsistent game. Displays a sense of timing, sets up with proper fundamentals and quickly releases the ball. Tough, stands in against the rush and is patient when given time. Throws with an over-the-top delivery and has an NFL arm.
Neg: Indecisive, not poised under pressure and makes poor decisions. Falls out of throws and tends to direct passes. Forces the action as the pocket collapses around him.
Analysis: Possessing the physical skills to play at the next level, Whitehurst has yet to display the consistent decision-making required of an NFL starter.
