Scouting Report
Though Dalton had one of the most successful careers in NCAA history, many wonder whether he can have anywhere near that kind of success in the pros. A shaky Senior Bowl performance didn't help his cause as he was sacked twice and got knocked out of the game, finishing 3 of 7 for 22 yards. The NFL combine exposed his lack of athleticism, failing to place in the top 10 of any drill among 18 quarterbacks. A four-year starter who went 34-3 in his final three seasons with three bowl victories - he won offensive MVP honors in all of them - Dalton was rarely under pressure at TCU and that may be a red flag for NFL teams. A terrific offensive line - Dalton was sacked eight times in 13 games as a senior - and a potent ground attack kept him somewhat protected and he faced mostly inferior defenses in the Mountain West. It's hard to argue that he doesn't have the intangibles to be a capable signal-caller at the next level, though he's lacking in arm strength and his footwork is far from NFL-ready. He was an excellent scrambler in college, rushing for 1,611 yards and 22 TDs, but might not be quick enough to have similar success on Sundays. Dalton was among the nation's top 10 in passer rating in each of his final two seasons, throwing for 50 TDs and 14 interceptions. The two-time Mountain West offensive player of the year is expected to come off the board in the middle rounds.
