Tayden possesses one of the bigger arms this class has to offer and is capable of driving the ball to any area of the field. Has good height on a frame with significant physical upside to add bulk and strength. He possesses terrific feet, pocket movement, awareness and can buy time with good overall athleticism for the position. He is a tough runner and will lower his shoulder as a ball carrier. Tayden rarely forces throws and works through progressions nicely, can check down and work from the first option to the next. He shows pre-snap recognition of where to go with ball and shows good command of the scheme. This is an area where Tayden stands out. He rarely takes his eyes down within the pocket and scans the field under pressure and will plant and throw in face of the rush. He side-steps and resets with balance and is ready to get the ball out even under duress. Feet, set-up and drop speed are all very good and consistent. He maintains balance and width in his stance to deliver the ball at a moment's notice. Possesses a very smooth and compact delivery. Carries the ball tight at breast plate level with very little wasted motion. He shows a consistent and quick stroke over-the-top and can beat the rush with his release consistently. Short and intermediate arm strength is present with very good zip and RPMs to fit the ball into tight spots especially when on time. He shows good ability changing ball speeds and displays touch and timing on fade and corner routes. That may be the best trait Tayden possesses. He throws with zip and touch and does a nice job leading receivers. Throws to a spot with ease. The best part is Tayden's best football is ahead of him, as he is nowhere near his ceiling coaches lookout this kid can play.
