NFL Draft

Draft Profile: Mississippi St. QB Nick Fitzgerald – Zach Putteet

by Zach Putteet

Nick Fitzgerald

6’5”, 230 lbs

2018 Stats

1767 pass yards, 16 TD, 9 INT, 221 rush att, 1121 rush yd, 13 TD

Strengths

Size and athleticism – Fitzgerald has NFL caliber size at 6’5 230 lbs and is very athletic and nifty as a runner has he can maneuver around to buy time while under pressure.

Weaknesses

Accuracy and decision making – Accuracy has always been an issue for Fitzgerald as his highest completion percentage as a starter was 55%. Fitzgerald has a habit of trying to fit the ball in tight windows, and tends to make off balance throws with pressure in his face

Overview

Fitzgerald is the dream QB at 6’5” 230 lbs and great arm talent but his poor accuracy and decision making will make him more of a project for an NFL team. I see Fitzgerald being drafted very late or maybe even undrafted and signed as a free agent and a team trying to put him in the Taysom Hill type of role.
