Draft Rewind 2013 – EJ Manuel – Buffalo Bills

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about EJ MANUEL: Florida State, 6045 237 4.65. Started 31 games in his Seminole career. Passes the look test physically. Big, strong, and athletic. Plays both under center and in the shotgun. A drop back passer who can scramble North and South for a first down. Throws a nice spiral the majority of the time. Very mechanical in his setup to the throwing point. Inconsistent downfield accuracy. Has a tendency to throw high or behind his receivers. Improved in 2012, but is erratic high and low. Must improve his decision making to ensure a long NFL career. Question his natural feel in the passing game. Inconsistent to come off primary target. Does not readily read and locate receiver. Grades out as a backup type quarterback. 2012 stats: 263/387, 3392 passing yds, 68%, 23 TD, 10 INT. Ball velocity 54 mph. OSR:2/15. Second/ third round. (A-35, H-10 3/8, SS-4.21, VJ-34). CAMP NOTES: EJ Manuel was the first quarterback drafted and will compete with free agent addition Kevin Kolb. During OTAs, Manuel’s footwork problems were evident as were his accuracy issues. The Bills think if his footwork improves, so will his accuracy. He passes the look test physically as he is big, strong, and athletic. His natural feel for the game will always be in question as will his decision making.
