Strengths 

Matt's athleticism and improvisational skills stand out the most on film but teams will draft him for his short-mid range accuracy, timing, and delivery. He's just as good at extending plays with his feet as he is standing in the pocket and placing the ball right where his receiver needs it. Has mastered the RPO offense and will have success if teams are willing to remodel their offense to fit his strengths.

Weaknessess

The Lane Kiffin system hasn't proven to produce NFL worthy QB prospects and has to be a big cause for concern. Very little of what Matt Corral did on film translates to the next level from a football IQ standpoint. Overly confident in his arm, Matt took far too many risks down field, often sailing deep balls and forcing his WR to adjust to under thrown balls. He often missed wide open 2nd and 3rd reads and instead force throws or prematurely look to scramble. Did not handle pressure well as a passer and will continue to get hurt if he plays with the same reckless abandonment with the ball in his hands.

Big Picture

Playing in such a quarterback friendly offense does make it harder to project Corral's future as an NFL starter and he should be treated as a developmental player. NFL Starter upside is certainly their if given time to grasp more pro-style route concepts, dissect coverage schemes, and become a better decision maker. Due to a weaker quarterback class, Matt Corral is expected to be drafted much higher than his grade states and would normally be considered a day 2 prospect. Matt Corral projects to be an 8+ year journeyman QB with potential to find success as a starter if paired with a offensive mind who can bridge the gap from RPO to pro.

Athleticism:

7.15

Matt Corral's a slightly above average athlete for the position with a knack for picking up yards with his feet and making guys miss. He was often utilized as a runner in Lane Kiffin's offense but will struggle if asked to play the same role against NFL level athletes. The Ole Miss QB's agility and contact balance helped him escape pressure but Matt often over extended plays resulting in turnovers and negative gains.

His ball placement and delivery on timing and rhythm throws down the middle of the field is his biggest strength as a passer. Corral can thread the needle when connecting on short to intermediate routes such as slants, digs, and posts. His throwing motion and lower mechanics can be wild at times when he's not able to set his feet. His accuracy (particularly when throwing outside the hash marks) suffers tremendously when under pressure. The RPO, single read type offense didn't offer much evidence that Matt Corral can effeciently go through his progressions or read coverages at an NFL level. The quarterback's arm strength is decent but his deep ball placement will need refinement.

Corral was clearly the Rebel's leader on the field, proving he's a fearless comptetitor, earning the respect of his teammates and coaches by playing with a ton of heart. Was highly productive in a system designed to simplify the responsibility of a quarterback by creating open passing lanes with a read-option, spread based playbook. A perceived lack of mental fortitude and maturity issues are believed to be a cause for concern.

His decision making has to be a cause for concern. Corral attempted to play a lot of hero ball at Ole Miss which resulted in an unhealthy balance of production and risk that won't cut it at the next level. Wasn't challenged to read coverages or make calls at the LOS. Great feel for running RPO's and reading the free defender. Rare instincts when running the ball that you don't typically see from a quarterback.
