Prospect Profile: Josh Haldi

Josh Haldi School: Northern Illinois
Ht: 6-2 Wt: 215 40: 4.70 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Three year starter who posted 52.5%/ 1,384/15/4 as a senior in nine games. Career numbers of 59.2%/2,544/25/9 came as a junior.

Positives: Intelligent and athletic passer with marginal size/speed numbers for the NFL. Quickly sets up in the pocket, immediately releases the ball and displays a live arm in the short field. Sells all the fakes, times his passes well and can throw the ball on a rope. Has the ability to make plays with his legs.

Negatives: Must set his feet in the pocket as he does not throw over his top foot and tends to drift. Cannot drive the deep throw down field and has marginal long accuracy.

Analysis: A solid short-range passer best in a timing offense, Haldi is an excellent leader with top football intangibles. Does not possess the physical skills to be a starter yet would be an asset as a team's third quarterback.
