Position:  Quarterback

College: Memphis

Height: 6’7″

Weight: 245

Game: Memphis (8-1) at Houston (9-0) – Saturday, November 14th – 6 P.M. CT – ESPN2

The Memphis product is easily the most intriguing player on every scouts radar. With a stature that says Joe Flacco and the pocket evasiveness of Ben Roethlisberger, Lynch has been getting more hype than any other prospect this year.

Lynch possesses sneaky elusiveness escaping from the pocket, and is deceptively quick for his height. In addition, Lynch delivers a strong throw on his passes over 20 yards or more toward the center of the field.

However, Lynch has a strange tendency to not deliver a tight spiral on his short to intermediate throws, and lacks the touch to hit receivers on deep out routes. This is a strange occurrence for a quarterback of his stature.

Another issue that I note with Lynch is the lack of talent that he has played against. Up until their game this coming weekend, opponents combined winning percentage for the year is 40-42 (.487).

Lynch could fit the bill as the Bears look for a young signal caller to mold as Jay Cutler controls the reigns for at least another year.

While there may be more questions than answers, Lynch is an extremely intriguing prospect. Make sure to catch Lynch this Saturday, as he has his hands full against the undefeated Houston Cougars.
