Evan threw the tightest spirals on the day and his balls were crisp and catchable. The zip on his passes was a bit surprising. He was even able to do a good job of delivering passes into a stiff wind. But in a head to head match-up, Robbie would come out on top. The kid has an absolute cannon. He’ll be able to squeeze the balls into tight spaces and throw 20-yard outs on a line.
Rob rifles the pass
Evan would have to get the edge in this department. He moves better than some might expect and still can throw accurate passes while on the move. Though Robbie isn’t quite as mobile as Evan, he isn’t a statue in the pocket either. He possesses an escapability that not many kids his size have.
Evan showed very good mobility
Evan gets the nod in this department too. If the number of catchable balls thrown on the day were a stat during Sunday’s competition, he would have been pretty far in front of his adversaries.
Evan's delivers the pass
Evan is the more polished quarterback at this point. His footwork is advanced and he always finds a way to get himself set and square toward his target before he throws. That’s a very large part of why he delivers such a good ball. Rob’s arm is so big that he doesn’t always have to be set to get the ball to the desired location on time. However, not getting his feet under him can sometimes affect the accuracy and tightness of his passes. That was the case at times on Sunday.
Sharpley had very good technique
Rob obviously takes this category. At 6-6 235 lbs., he’s like a linebacker playing behind center. He’s able to see over the line and can stand up to the pressure of defenders bearing down on him.
Rob towers over most other QB's
This category goes to Robbie. His combination of size, strength, and mobility is what college coaches search for every year. However, he must be developed and tutored in order for his raw ability to be harnessed. Evan is more refined right now, but he too is still improving. Both quarterbacks obviously have talent, as evidenced by their early offers.
This category isn’t meant to suggest that Robbie or Evan are the next coming of the players that they are being compared to, nor is it suggesting that they are as good as said players at the same stage of development. It just serves as a guide to illustrate their skill sets.
Robbie Schoenhoft: Ryan Leaf is the player Rob's skill set put me in the mind of most. Rob is a big athletic quarterback with a very good arm. When he gets with a good college QB coach, he could become a very good player.
Evan Sharpley: Evan's game is similar to that of Chad Pennington. He’s a technically sound QB that moves well in the pocket and is a very accurate passer.
When the rankings come out, both young men should be 4 star players (or maybe very-high 3 to begin with, since neither is that well known).
