PROS: Shows consistency with both accuracy and velocity on passes. Has shown the ability to stretch the field vertically and also fit passes into tight windows. Ball placement is ideal. Knows when to put passes high, when to put them low, when to lead receivers away from contact, etc. Has good mobility and can maintain passing integrity with arm strength and accuracy when on the run and outside of the pocket. Generally, a reliable decision maker pre and post snap.
CONS: Herbert doesn’t have the biggest frame, so durability is somewhat of a concern – has broken both his femur and collarbone. Bad decision making doesn’t seem to come from getting rattled as much as it does lapses in judgment when it happens. Has a tendency to stare down receivers.
