Table inside Article
Big body standing at 6-foot-5, 235-pounds and a cannon of an arm to go along with it. Can throw deep down field with accuracy and poise in the pocket. His frame allows him to be a more punishing runner, and he’ll plow through defenders who aren’t careful. All-around athlete and leader. One speed as a passer. Zips throws consistently over targets and rarely has the touch needed to finesse over defenders. Like a pitcher that throws a good fastball, but has no breaking ball. Took far too long to make certain reads and progress through his targets, ultimately leading to sacks.

OVERVIEW: There is a lot to be intrigued about when studying Joe Milton III. He certainly had success at Tennessee and won some big games during his time with the Volunteers. Additionally, he boasts a fantastic athletic profile that resembles a tank more than a quarterback. But how much teaching and guidance will he need fundamentally at the professional level? Neither his reads or touch are ready to step in as a starter right away, but with the right leadership, someone could unlock a special talent and a long-term QB option.
