Prospect Profile: Ben Daugherty

Ben Daugherty School: Florida A&M
Ht: 6-2 Wt: 222 40: 4.86 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Former Iowa State transfer who posted 61.6%/2,696/19/11 passing along with 128/340/6 rushing as a senior.

Positives: Patient passer with a good degree of upside potential. Stands strong in the pocket, buys time for receivers and displays an excellent sense of knowing where receivers are on the field. Zips the intermediate range throws and displays an adequate long arm. Looks off the safety, nicely times the short throws or leads receivers over the middle.

Negatives: Must learn touch and at times puts too much velocity on throws, overshooting intended targets. Takes most of his snaps out of the shotgun and tends to drift in the pocket, not properly setting his feet. Does not possess top accuracy down the field. Forces the ball into coverage. Takes a while to gather before releasing the throw.

Analysis: A solid passer who's flown under the radar screen the past two seasons, Daugherty has potential as a backup in a timing offense.
