Prospect Profile: Ryan Leadingham

Ryan Leadingham School: Sacramento State
Ht: 6-0.5 Wt: 211 40: 4.91 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Four-year starter who's set a variety of school records during his college career. Finished his senior campaign throwing 50.8%/ 1,962/11/17.

Positives: Solid small-school passer with marginal skill for the next level. Stands strong in the pocket, throws with a fluid delivery and puts zip on the short passes. Sells the ball fakes, rolls outside the pocket and patient in the face of pressure. Buys time for receivers and waits until the last possible second before releasing the ball. Tough, and takes a hit in order to get the ball off.

Negatives: Lacks stature and a presence in the pocket. Not a threat running the ball or an elusive passer who can escape the rush. Has difficulty making the pass on the move. Rather inaccurate outside of ten yards or to the flanks.

Analysis: A marginal athlete with limited upside for the next level, Leadingham has done a good job on a small school level.
