There wasn't a hotter "unheralded" quarterback in the online draft community last year than San Jose State's David Fales. He was completing 72.5 percent of his passes, had a 33-to-9 touchdown-to-interception ratio and led a San Jose State team to an 11-2 record and a Military Bowl win.
Impressive achievements in their own right, but they were all the more impressive when you consider San Jose State had six combined wins in their previous two seasons.
Fales, who started his collegiate career at Nevada before transferring to Monterey Peninsula College (and taking a summer class at the University of Wyoming), started the 2013 season learning an entirely new offense after head coach Mike MacIntyre left for Colorado and took offensive coordinator Brian Lindgren with him.
Fales has struggled thus far in adapting to the more pro-style attack of new head coach Ron Caragher. His completion percentage has dropped to 59.2 percent, and he's already thrown eight interceptions this season through six games, against the nine he threw all of last year.
Here is my scouting report on Fales.
