The former Florida Gator transferred to N.C. State after losing the starting job to Jeff Driskel. Brissett went on to enjoy a great career with the Wolfpack where he showed sings of brilliance. The big, strong-armed, athletic QB is a very intriguing prospect in this year’s draft. If he was able to be more consistent in college, we could see him go as high as the 3rd round. Regardless, Brissett brings arguably the most upside of the late round QBs. The last QB to transfer from Florida and get drafted? Cam Newton.
Name: Jacoby Brissett
College: North Carolina State
Class: Senior (RS)
Projection: 6th Round
Comparison: Brett Hundley
Strengths: Strong arm. A big, strong, square athlete with good awareness creating time in the pocket. Shuffles his feet and keeps himself in a good position to throw when being moved around the pocket by defenders. Utilizes fakes to fool defenders and extend plays. Plays under center and in shotgun.
Weaknesses: Accuracy is hit and miss. Regularly is on the move and playing backyard football. Does not consistently stay in the pocket and scan the field. When in the pocket misses open players and is slow to see things develop. Decision-making is a huge question mark. Careless with the football.
Overview: Brissett has the size, arm strength and ability to hit on the deep ball that will intrigue NFL teams but lacks the polish and consistent accuracy in a blue chip prospect. I see him as a day three prospect.
