Strengths 

Firing the football with a good amount of accuracy on short yardage situations was present. Getting the football into tight windows and outside the numbers is not an issue for him. Has a short throwing motion which allows the ball to come out of his hands at a fast rate. Being able to run effective RPO and play action plays at a high rate put his team into good positions. Has an athletic ability to make plays outside of the pocket if a play breaks down.

Weaknessess

Touch when throwing the football deep down the field would lack at times. Does not possess the strongest arm to hit receivers in stride. Too many incidents of receivers having to slow down to catch the football. At times, he would drop his eyes after the 2nd read in his pass progression. Locking on his first read needs to stop happening to improve in reading the entire field. Footwork was much cleaner under center when rolling into drop backs then when in shotgun.

Big Picture

Drew Plitt out of Ball State is a QB that has positive traits that an NFL team can work with. This is a QB that needs to be in a RPO type offense that will have him on the move a decent amount throughout the game. Plitt is not a QB that an offense is going to want throwing and dropping back out of shotgun 40 plus times. Being able to learn in an offense that heavily involves play action will help his development more. When Plitt would drop back in shotgun, his footwork lacked with rhythm and at times he would stop moving his feet. Had much better footwork when under center or on the move. Plitt has some athletic traits that allow him produce on the run. Does not have an explosive running ability but does have enough speed to pick up chunks of yardage. When Plitt does get on the move, inaccuracy will result if he does decide to throw it. When Plitt is in the open field, being able to slide to avoid tackles needs to happen more. When it comes the throwing the football, Plitt does have the ability to get the ball out of his hands quickly and place it into tight windows. However, when it comes to natural touch deep down the field, it can be nonexistent. In addition, Plitt struggles with going through his entire pass protection. He will want to bail out of the pocket when that 1st and 2nd read are not clearly open. Being able to develop his natural passing traits at the next level will improve his ability to be a starter in the NFL.

Player Comp

Ryan Tannehill

Athleticism:

7.15

Capable of running RPOs and effective play action plays. Can create plays off of using his legs. Will use his athletic ability to his advantage when going to attempt to throw or on the move which usually is when he breaks outside of the pocket. Was capable of being able to take steps up to avoid pass rushers in the pocket. His agility and speed does not pop off with explosiveness, but he is a QB that can make plays with his leg when he has to. When the pressure does get in his face, he can move and throw while scrambling, but more inaccuracy will result in the throw if his feet are not set. More sliding to avoid big hits needs to be introduced into his game.

The ball will come out of his hand quickly and with very good velocity. He does have a shorter throwing motion which allows the ball to get out of his hands faster than most QBs. The ability to place the football into tight windows was present a number of times on film. He does not have the strongest arm but was able to push the ball outside the numbers at a decent rate. The ability of hitting receivers in stride needs to be developed more. To many times, receivers were slowing down or reaching behind themselves to catch the football. Was much better at hitting the shorter routes than big deep routes down the field that have to excel with touch. Taking polish drop backs tend to happen more coming under center compared to out in the gun. In shotgun, his steps were at times nonexistent or very short. The ability to step up and deliver a fast strike by firing off that back foot did not always happen as well.

6.75

Able to conduct himself in a good manner with his teammate’s pre-snap but not at an NFL type level just yet. Will stand up straight in the pocket and deliver well placed balls to receivers. Was not super productive but did an outstanding job of not turning the football over in 2021, only had 5 INTs on the season. Will try to improvise if a play does break down but the ability to slide or run out of bounce to avoid unnecessary shots needs to happen more often.

Instincts would tend to grow as the game went on. Being able to protect his body however was lacking. A little bit of pre-snap communication would go on, but more would truly help. Field vision does need to improve. Would tuck it and run if his 2nd read was not open. Hitting those 3rd and late 4th reads at a fast rate needs to be introduced to improve his passing ability. Would lock on that 1st read a decent amount. Does have solid decision making and he did not turn over the ball a whole lot.
