Andrew Walter School: Arizona State
Ht: 6-6 Wt: 233 40: 4.91 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Second-team All-Conference selection as
a senior after passing numbers of 57.3%/3,150/
30/9. Broke into the starting unit as a sophomore
strong pocket passer who's been productive
throughout his college career. Patient, buys
time for receivers, and has a good sense of
where his targets are on the field. Possesses
a quick release and immediately gets the
ball out of his hands. Fires the pass between
defenders, easily gets the ball downfield and
zips the outs. Displays a sense of timing,
nicely places his passes, and does not have
receivers waiting on the throw. Sees the field,
senses the blitz, and for the most part, finds
the open wideouts. Accurate down the field laying
passes in front of targets. Always working
to make something positive happen. Strong
enough to withstand the rush and get the ball
off with defenders in his face.
Negatives: Slow setting
up in the pocket, releases the ball with a threequarters
motion, and has a low trajectory for a
tall passer. Immobile and cannot escape the
rush. Erratic, misreads defenses and throws
the ball into coverage. Makes the errant toss
off his back foot. Does not throw tight spirals or
the prettiest passes. Usually high of the mark
and has receivers extending vertically to grab
the ball out of the air.
Analysis: A big, strong
quarterback with excellent physical skills,
Walter is a prototypical drop-back passer for
the next level. Must be more consistent with his
reads and decision making if he's to ever be a
starter at the next level.
