2020 Elite 11 QB


This is a prospect that at this stage possesses just about every physical trait or measurable you could want in a high school prospect. Eli can run, displays a terrific arm, he possesses great size on a muscular frame and his overall athleticism is off the charts. Plays in the shotgun spread which is ideal for his tools, but he could easily play in the pro-set and from under center to be just as big of a threat. He stands tall and can scan the field from within the pocket. He is truly at his best when on the move and creating or keeping the play alive. He is such a distinct running threat that you sometimes forget that his live arm can make throws deep down the field even when off balance or on the move. Ball jumps out of his hand with great velocity and authority when his feet are set. Can make every throw including those into tight spots at intermediate ranges. Can drive the ball deep and really stretch the field when he is balanced and transfers his weight from his back foot. Appears to show quality accuracy overall to all areas of the field and has a knack for throwing off balance and still hitting the strike zone. What's most impressive is his overall speed and athleticism for a player his size. He displays outstanding top end speed for the position and especially for a player that may be termed a "dual-threat" but does not need to be because of his arm. He is elusive, strong and deceptively quick much. This offense allows for him to roll out to either side and be a run/pass threat the majority of the time in the passing game. He is dangerous when improvising with his quick feet and buying a second chance. Throws well on the move and can throw back against his body. In a workout setting he is crisp, shows timing, footwork and fundamentally is sound with his delivery. Overall, Eli is the total package when it comes to measurables and physical tools. He has a chance to be special and is a highly competitive prospect with a high work ethic.
