Quarterback Jacob Eason has been a prospect that scouts and writers have a variety of opinions about. Eason played well for both Georgia and Washington during his college career. With many teams being all over the place as it concerns Eason, the opinions of writers and scouts will naturally follow suit.
The positive attributes are easily identifiable when it concerns Eason. Eason has excellent size for the position at 6’6” 227 lbs. Eason has a very strong arm and excellent pocket presence. Eason moves around just enough to get rid of the football. Eason does not mind pulling the ball down and picking up any yards he can via his legs. Eason has a strong enough arm to make every throw that is ask of him and has the talent to make NFL level throws.
Eason has all the tools that teams are looking for, when it comes to the quarterback position. What baffles scouts and sportswriters at times is decision making when it comes to forcing the ball into tight coverages. Eason’s consistency is an area that can be improved as well and improving on being able to look coverages away from his targets will help with the consistency issue.
Eason has first round talent. I think Eason will fall into the second round, but I think with a good pro day and an impressive showing at the combine, he will have a chance to move up draft boards. Teams will fall in love with the arm strength and over time his decision making will improve.
