Someone is going to get a fine prospect that is flying under the radar as a well-proportioned, strong armed pocket passer that has one of the better, quicker releases this class has to offer. Somehow this kid is a hidden gem and he reminds us of a younger version of Ram's Jared Goff. The ball really jumps off his hand with velocity and a quick, compact stroke. He is pretty polished, fundamentally consistent, carries the ball well and wastes little-to-no motion in everything he does. Drops are smooth and quick, and his set up is balanced. He has great arm strength and can drive the ball downfield. He throws the deep ball with good velocity and also gets great RPMs on deep-out routes. Barrett is capable of throwing on the run when rolling both to the right and left. He can beat the rush with his delivery. His timing is excellent, and he can deliver the deep comeback with ease. He is very accurate all over the field and can fit the ball into tight spots when he has too, but rarely forces ball despite a ton of confidence in his arm. He's crafty and makes smart decisions with the ball in his hands. Is very accurate, especially when on time. Has very good mechanics and timing as a passer. Is fluid in his drops, set up is balanced and is very consistent in his methods. Has been well coached on fundamentals, drops, delivery and footwork. Barrett is well polished as a passer. He is crisp, shows timing, footwork and fundamentally is sound. Overall, Barrett is the total package when it comes to measurables and physical tools. He is special and highly competitive prospect with a high work ethic.
