Scouting Report
Only a two-star recruit coming out of high school who redshirted as a freshman and backed up former Duke basketball player Greg Paulus in 2009, Nassib capped a strong career at Syracuse by thriving in the up-tempo, no-huddle attack installed last season. He set career bests with 3,753 passing yards, 26 touchdowns and a 143.2 rating, while getting intercepted only 10 times. He also enjoyed strong sophomore and junior seasons, throwing 41 TDs to just 17 INTs in those years. Nassib set school records for completions (45), attempts (66) and yards (482) in a 42-41 victory over Northwestern in the Orange's season opener Sept. 1, also establishing the Big East pass attempts mark and tying the conference record for completions. He accounted for 512 of Syracuse's 596 yards of offense while throwing for four touchdowns in the contest. Nassib boasts a powerful arm and quick release, and throws with accuracy and touch. He showed the ability to make multiple reads and step up to avoid pressure and make throws, while delivering deep balls with plenty of air under them. Nassib is elusive and mobile and also avoids sacks by rolling out or dumping the ball off quickly. He is polished at play action and ball fakes, and brings brash confidence and leadership to the position. Nassib is thickly built and not afraid to take hits while trying to pick up yardage. He went 4 of 10 for 44 yards and an interception in the Senior Bowl. The biggest red flag for potential employers will be Nassib's less-than-ideal height for an NFL quarterback. His aggressive mentality can also lead to some bad decisions. However, he's widely viewed as a potential starter and could go in the first two rounds. His coach at Syracuse, Doug Marrone, took the Buffalo coaching job in January and that seems certain to lead to plenty of speculation if Nassib is still available and the Bills are on the clock.
