PROSPECT SUMMARY – PEYTON RAMSEY
Northwestern quarterback Peyton Ramsey made the most of his graduate transfer season in 2020 after spending the early portions of his career with the Indiana Hoosiers. He led Northwestern to the Big Ten Championship Game and posted nearly 300 yards passing against the Auburn Tigers to close out his college career. Ramsey is an undersized passer who makes due oftentimes because of his mobility and athleticism to scramble both within and outside the pocket. His play at Indiana features plenty of RPOs and that is an element to the offense that he can run effectively with his ball-handling at the mesh point and his mobility to offer a third threat outside of the initial threat with the back and shallow targets working to the numbers for quick throws. Ramsey’s arm talent can best be described as adequate and will be a significant limiting factor to his NFL impact. But today’s game can be won both inside and outside of structure and Ramsey offers you just enough in both to serve as a bottom of the roster quarterback for emergency situations.
Ideal Role: Practice squad quarterback.
Scheme Fit: Spread offense with vertical elements and A-level RPOs.
