Jacoby Brissett is unquestionably one of the most interesting quarterback prospects in this year’s crop of players. The former Florida transfer ended up at North Carolina State and he’s been turning heads all season long.
It really started in 2014 when he got his first opportunity at a full-time starting gig after two years with the Gators where he completed almost 60 percent of his passes with 23 touchdowns and just five interceptions. He’s bumped up that completion percentage this season to almost 66 percent and he’s got 13 touchdowns compared to just one interception.
Look at this laser…
NC State also uses some offensive concepts that you will see with the Broncos and Gary Kubiak. That throw is us getting to see the best of Brissett — showing a nice wide base, making a great read and a perfect throw downfield. Not every play is perfect, but that’s what makes these guys prospects. They are mostly a blank canvas for teams to work with.
With his size and athleticism, Brissett would be an intriguing mid-round pick for the Broncos in 2016.
