Conner Weigman’s Draft Profile | Texas A&M, QB Scouting Report

Does Texas A&M's Conner Weigman have the tools to emerge in the 2025 NFL Draft cycle? His scouting report has all of the information.

The 2025 NFL Draft quarterback class is wide open at the moment. Could that mean Texas A&M’s Conner Weigman is primed to emerge as a first-round passer? As his 2025 NFL Draft scouting report details, Weigman still has a ways to go — but the upside is real.

Conner Weigman’s Draft Profile and Measurements

  • Height: 6’2″
  • Weight: 215 pounds
  • Position: Quarterback
  • School: Texas A&M
  • Current Year: Junior

The 2025 NFL Draft QB class is full of wild cards, but Weigman has some of the most distinct potential energy of that Wild Card group. He was a five-star talent at Cypress Bridgeland in Texas, who led his team to a 31-7 combined record across three seasons at the varsity level. His near-elite arm talent was recognizable by scouts nationwide, and that talent landed him an opportunity at Texas A&M.

As a true freshman in 2022, Weigman started four games and threw for 896 yards, eight touchdowns, and zero interceptions. In 2023, he was set to be the full-time starter and kicked off the campaign on a hot streak, completing almost 70% of his passes for 979 yards, eight scores, and two interceptions while also rushing for two touchdowns.

However, in Texas A&M’s fourth game of the 2023 season, Weigman suffered what appeared to be an ankle injury. It was eventually revealed that he’d broken a bone in his right foot, and he’d miss the remainder of the campaign.

Since the injury, the Texas A&M program has gone through sweeping changes. Jimbo Fisher is gone, and Mike Elko is in his place. Regime changes sometimes bring changes at quarterback, but Weigman won over Elko and his staff early — and soon, the Aggies’ QB will get his chance to return and potentially rise into the Round 1 discussion.

Weigman’s Scouting Report

Strengths

  • Carries good prototypical size and mass, and has high-level composite arm talent.
  • Has the arm strength to drive the ball into tight pockets from the opposite hash.
  • Able to hit targets up the seam with high velocity while leading them upfield for RAC.
  • Can use his combined arm strength and elasticity to layer pace and touch on drive balls.
  • Impressive size-adjusted athlete with short-area agility, evasive burst, and solid speed.
  • Relatively smooth off-platform passer who can realign his hips and torque while drifting.
  • Baseball background affords Weigman strong mechanical feel and a level of natural accuracy.
  • Shows glimpses of elite situational precision in 2-on-1s, throwing WRs open with pace.
  • Can sense backside pressure and sidestep surging rushers to escape through gaps.
  • Does a good job sensing rushers early and sliding in the pocket to give himself space.
  • Showcases a willingness to stand in the pocket and deliver with rushers bearing down.
  • Has efficient dropback footwork and good depth discipline, and can climb the pocket.
  • Has shown to use controlled shoulder tilt and angle freedom to add loft on throws.
  • Willing to take calculated risks under pressure, flashing break anticipation in that phase.
  • Will still be just 21 years old at the time of the 2025 NFL Draft.

Weaknesses

  • Arm strength, while great, might not be quantifiably elite.
  • Exhibits modest hip stiffness, which can sometimes snag his hip rotation on release.
  • Flat-footed release stance can, at times, tug front shoulder down and skew passes low.
  • Idle feet can cause lopsided upper body mechanics and shoulder misalignment.
  • Tends to widen his base too far ahead of releases, which snags hip rotation even more.
  • Can better understand the balance of velocity and touch needed on certain plays.
  • Sometimes drifts into pressure and can be more cognizant of interior rushers.
  • At times, could be quicker and more efficient loading up on timing and rhythm throws.
  • Eyes sometimes idle on initial reads and drop when pressure threats loop around.
  • Has relatively little experience with multi-progression reps and successive reads.
  • Still improving at anticipating and triggering on windows over the middle of the field.
  • Can occasionally be too hesitant when tight-window opportunities arise.
  • Could be quicker to move to his checkdown or adapt when options aren’t open downfield.
  • Has just eight career starts and 251 career pass attempts heading into 2024.
  • Missed most of 2023 with a broken bone in his right foot.

Current Draft Projection and Summary

Heading into the 2025 NFL Draft cycle, Weigman grades out as an early-to-mid Day 3 prospect on my board. However, he still has very little relative experience, and 2024 could be the season that vaults him into the early round — or perhaps even first-round range.

The former five-star recruit undoubtedly has the tools to eventually command Round 1 capital. At his size, Weigman is a stellar athlete with good short-area agility and burst. He’s also a very natural off-platform thrower with the ease of velocity to push the ball up seams and outside the numbers.

Also helping Weigman is his natural mechanical feel and accuracy. There are still a few mechanical inconsistencies that need to be worked out, but Weigman does have a great feel for correction when working off-platform, and he can use controlled shoulder tilt to add loft and layer throws.

For Weigman, many of his areas for improvement stem from inexperience. He’s not yet a natural progression QB on a down-to-down basis, and his anticipation can be inconsistent. Additionally, while he senses edge pressure well, he can improve at navigating the interior of the pocket.

Having said all this, the tools are there with Weigman, and there are flashes of high-end ability in every category — processing, precision, pocket management, and risk propensity. Right now, Weigman’s grade is incomplete, but with a good season, he has the talent to be a Round 1 riser.
