Scouting Report: QB John Beck

The Dolphins potentially got their quarterback of the future in the second round with the selection of Brigham Young's John Beck. Here is TFY Draft Preview's complete pre-draft scouting report on the quarterback, including bio, analysis and more.

School: Brigham Young

HT: 6-2 WT: 215

40-Yard Dash: 4.79

Bio: Three-year starter named Mountain West Conference Offensive Player of the Year in '06 after totals of 69.3%/3,885/32/8. All-Conference and All-Academic selection as a junior when he totaled 3,709 yards passing with 27 touchdown strikes.

Positives: Intelligent passer accurate in the short and intermediate field. Stands strong in the pocket, poised under the rush and consistently finds the open wideout. Sells the ball fakes, looks off the safety and goes through receiver progressions. Displays a sense of timing, hits receivers as they leave their breaks and nicely sets up screen throws. Puts touch on passes when necessary, placing the ball into the receivers' hands. Immediately gets rid of the ball on quick tosses. Stays away from the errant pass.

Negatives: Lacks the top deep arm. Over-aged prospect.

Analysis: A signal-caller with excellent intangibles and field vision, Beck could effectively back up in a West Coast offense.
