Ht: 6-2 Wt: 233 40: 4.98 Year: 4Sr
Bio: Played in four games as a senior after
breaking a clavicle bone. Finished with
54.7%/741/8/3 passing. Totaled a career high
2,357 yards through the air as a junior, with
18 touchdown strikes. Moved into the starting
line-up as a freshman.
Positives: Well-built, athletic
passer who efficiently runs the game. Sets up
with solid footwork, sells the ball fakes and has
an adequate deep arm. Quickly finds the open

down the field. Sees the blitz, effectively reads
the defense and immediately finds the open
Negatives: Must improve his long accuracy.
Not averse to throwing in a crowd. Marginally
effective passing on the move.
solid prospect who had his development stunted
by injury last season, Petrie possesses the
physical skills to play at the next level. A long
shot to make it at this point, yet a player who
should be brought into camp next summer and
given consideration for the practice squad.
