Pros: Jake aligns at QB for the Ute spread offense. He is an average athlete with regards to his mobility both in and out of the pocket. He does a good job with subtle movements to slide and step up in the pocket to avoid the rush. In the passing game, he is sufficient overall. He's been productive distributing the ball within his scheme at South Carolina. He does a good job of going through his progression then checking it down when necessary. He can throw the 5 route from the opposite half with sufficient velocity. He throws a catchable ball and has above average accuracy on his deep ball. Bentley does a good job feeling the rush on the backside, stands strong in the pocket with A-gap pressure and will deliver the football under duress.
Cons: Bentley's overall athleticism is average and he isn’t a legitimate threat to the defense with his legs. He does have subtle movements in and out of the pocket to buy himself some time but this isn’t a strength. His arm strength is average and his accuracy on the move was inconsistent. He hasn’t been a great decision maker and turnovers have been an issue for him. He missed most of 2019 with a foot injury and it should be researched as he goes through the process as well.
