athletic passer with the abilities to make plays
with his arm or legs. Patient in the pocket, sees
the short field and easily gets the pass downfield.
Looks away from covered receivers, finds the
open target or pulls the ball down and takes off
up the field.
Negatives: Has a big wind up and releases
the ball from the side. Marginal accuracy down
the field and lacks top pass placement. Has
difficulty seeing over the line.
Analysis: A good
athlete who's been a solid quarterback on the
collegiate level, Durant has the size and physical
skills to make the switch to another position in the
NFL. Unlikely to be drafted, yet a solid developmental
prospect for a team's practice squad as a
running back or safety.
