OVERALL 

Peyton Ramsey is a polished QB who consistently shows the ability to stand and deliver accurate throws on time. Ramsey is an above-average athlete with good feet who anticipates well with his throws, but his lack of arm strength constantly pops up.

His below-average arm strength makes throwing on time an absolute necessity within the pocket, as he lacks overwhelming size and athleticism to tip the scales elsewhere.

Overall, Ramsey is worth a look for his intangibles, athleticism and accuracy. He will stick in the NFL if he's able to operate every passing play with near-perfect efficiency and timing, but his lack of "good" traits gives him a narrow path for success.

        

GRADE: 6.5/10 (Round 7)

OVERALL RANK: 238/300

POSITION RANK: QB11

PRO COMPARISON: Matt McGloin
