2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Jacob Eason, QB, Washington Huskies

Positives
Large pocket passer with a big arm and the ability to make all the throws. Patient, buys time for receivers and throws the ball with an over-the-top delivery. Possesses great pocket stature and size, drives deep throws with speed and quickly gets rid of the ball with a flick of his wrist.

Puts passes out front of receivers, possesses a live arm and easily gets the ball through tight windows. Easily withstands the rush, takes a hit and gets the ball away. Puts air under deep throws.

Negatives
Makes questionable decisions under pressure. Does not always find players in the defensive back seven. Can be all over the place with throws and makes receivers work hard to come away with the reception. Often relies too much on his strong arm and forces the ball to covered targets.

Analysis
Physically, Eason possesses the top arm of all the quarterbacks in this year’s draft and comes with huge upside. He also offers a lot of downside, as he lacks a large body of work and has played limited football the past three seasons. While he showed flashes of brilliance at times this year for Washington, there were also moments when he looked very pedestrian.

Eason will need a lot of work on his game and should not be rushed onto the field. If coached correctly, he can be a productive starting passer at the next level; otherwise, Eason will consistently struggle.
