Kyle Orton School: Purdue
Ht: 6-4 Wt: 233 40: 5.09 Year: 4Sr
Bio: Moved into the starting lineup as a true
freshman. Posted career numbers 60.7%/
3,090/31/5 as a senior.
Positives: Heady, intelligent
passer with solid intangibles. Patient in the
pocket, buys time and waits for receivers to
come free. Sees the field, reads the blitz and
immediately gets the ball to the hot receiver.
Possesses a nice sense of timing, leads receivers
in the short field and zips the intermediate
Negatives: Possesses an elongated/wind-up
motion, which slows his release. Cannot drive
the deep throw as receivers are constantly
slowing down to make the reception. Forces
passes downfield on occasion and must
improve his long accuracy. Fizzled at the end
of his senior campaign and was benched.
Analysis: A signal caller who will draw much
debate and opinion, Orton has abilities to play
in a short passing game.
