2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon
In today's evolving NFL, quarterbacks need to be able to function both inside and outside the pocket. The speed of Michael Vick or the surgical precision of Peyton Manning are statistical outliers; however, a player who seems to borrow from the talents of many can be a difference maker for years to come. Such is the case for Mariota.
This redshirt sophomore blossomed during his two seasons with Oregon. While the Ducks' high-powered offense obviously does wonders for his amazing stats, Mariota's poise, feel for the pocket and quick decision making provide the necessary foundation to become a NFL-caliber starting quarterback.
Questionable mechanics, needs to be coached up with release and footwork. Spent a lot of time in the shotgun in college. Arm strength is adequate and should have no issues making most every throw in the playbook. Average agility but pretty good top speed. Should be one of the quicker QBs at the combine. Flows well with the play and has a great feel of when to tuck it and run. Accuracy is spotty. Misses too many easy throws.
Progression reads are very simple at Oregon and he will need time to learn to read more than one half of the field at a time. Mentally and physically tough. Strong leadership skills.
