Prospect Profile: Jason Campbell

Jason Campbell School: Auburn
Ht: 6-4.5 Wt: 230 40: 4.69 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Three-year starter named SEC Offensive Player of the Year last season after totaling 69.6%/2,700/20/7 as a passer and adding three more scores on the ground.

Positives: Athletic passer who took his game to another level as a senior. Patient in the pocket, buys time for receivers and poised under pressure. Feels the rush, steps up to avoid it, then finds the open pass catcher. Improved his reads in the pocket, displays solid field vision and overall awareness. Looks off the safety, goes through receiver progressions and does not force the ball if nothing's available.

Negatives: Cannot drive the deep pass, late on the outs and loses accuracy throwing on the move. Rarely makes plays with his legs.

Analysis: A prospect with the physical tools to work with, Campbell improved his overall game and made a big jump up draft boards the past six months. Most effective in a short passing offense that does not rely on the vertical game.
