New York Jets Draft Profile: Ryan Nassib

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

In our continuing efforts to preview potential members of the Jets in this 2013 NFL draft, we go back to a popular topic with the Jets, the quarterback position. We all know the Jets are in the hunt for a new quarterback. Ok Stevie Wonder can see that we need a quarterback.

So, we continue along that path. Yesterday, we took a look at EJ Manuel.  Today, we look at a kid right out of a school here in New York State, the University of Syracuse.  He is also a guy that has come up in discussions about being drafted by the Jets, so, we talk about him today.  Who is it?  It is Ryan Nassib from Syracuse.

MEASURABLES

Ryan measures in at 6’2″, 227 pounds.  At the combine, he ran a 5.06 in the forty yard dash.  Here are his career stats from Syracuse:

SEASON CMP ATT YDS CMP% YPA LNG TD INT SACK RAT

Here are some highlights, taken from a game against Missouri:

PROS: Ryan throws a very catchable ball, that’s the first thing. He doesn’t throw darts on every throw like Brett Favre did, making his passes difficult to catch. There is nice touch to Ryan’s throws, that make them catchable. He has a pretty strong arm, he appears to be able to make all of the throws. He is quick on his feet, to scramble and to make throws on the run.

CONS: He can make all the throws, but his footwork is VERY inconsistent. Sometimes he steps into his throws, and sometimes he does not. In college you can get away with some of those flaws for a while, but in the pro’s you cannot. He also worked primarily out of the shotgun, I would love to see how he works under center. His ball placement, putting the ball where his man can run with it, was also not consistent.

I do believe that Ryan Nassib would be a good investment for the New York Jets. I don’t think he is a first rounder at all, but in the mid-rounds? Sure.
