2007 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Drew Stanton, QB, Michigan State

This guy has a ton of potential. He has a good chance to make a much bigger impact in the NFL than he did at the college level. Granted, Stanton was by no means a disappointment at Michigan State, but the Spartans consistently underachieved the past few seasons. Stanton has adequate size and a good arm, but his greatest asset is his mobility and escape ability. Not only can he avoid the rush with his feet, but Stanton's pinpoint accuracy does not fail him even when he's on the run. He possesses all the essential intangibles, too, as he almost always makes good decisions with the football and is a natural-born leader. Stanton's main issues are inconsistency, durability, and mentality. When things get rough, Stanton often gets too hard on himself and lets the situation spiral out of control (see last season's loss to Notre Dame). He's also been injured on several occasions, which perhaps contributed to his inconsistency. Still, these are things that can easily disappear from Stanton's scouting report. His strengths, however, will certainly stay with him for a long time. Because of that, Stanton should be no worse than a third-round selection.
