Richard Bartel Scouting Report

The Dallas Cowboys signed Tarleton State QB Richard Bartel after a tryout this weekend. Bartel transfered to Tarleton State from SMU.

SCOUT.COM DRAFT RANKING: No. 42 (Quarterback)

BIO: Former SMU transfer who started the past two years, most recently throwing for 58.3%/2,023/16/5 as a senior.

POS: Strong pocket passer with an adequate arm. Poised under pressure and displays a sense of knowing where receivers are on the field. Buys time for wide outs, gives receivers a chance to catch the deep ball and makes the throw on the move. Always in control of the situation.

NEG: Has an elongated motion, releases the ball off his back foot and is late with timing passes. Does not step into throws, changes his point of release and displays marginal pass placement.

FINAL ANALYSIS: Analysis: Possessing excellent size, Bartel must improve his overall throwing fundamentals to have any chance of a career in football.
