Moves well in the pocket to evade the rush. Always looking to throw down the field as his feet navigates the through the pocket. Maintains accuracy while moving through the pocket. Has a good overall feel and presence in the pocket. Showed ability to work through his progressions and move defenders with his eyes. Has good arm talent and can make all the NFL throws. Excellent accuracy and ball placement. Beyond his years with anticipation. Can hit receivers in stride, allowing them to make yards after the catch.
Needs more experience. Auburn doesn’t challenge Stidham to do a lot. They stick with basic routes and the offense is focused on running the football first. We need to his responsibilities increase in 2018. He can sometimes lock onto receivers. He needs to be faster with his decision making.
Stidham sat out in 2016; effectively redshirting himself. In 2017, Stidham transferred to Auburn and won the starting job. He pressed the reset button on his college career. He is in the discussion as a first-round quarterback in 2019.
