Pros: Shea aligns at QB for the Wolverine spread offense. He brings sufficient overall athleticism to the offense. He shows good mobility within the pocket, to slide, avoid the rush and deliver the football. He also shows the athleticism to make plays off schedule and extend the play. He has flashes of sufficient accuracy while throwing on the move. He throws a catchable football and has flashes of sufficient accuracy in the short to intermediate areas. He has won games during his time at both institutions and that should not be ignored. He has also shown the competitiveness to rally and inspire his team and to bound from adversity over the course of a game. He will struggle to roster in the NFL but if placed in an ideal situation which highlights what he does best, he could challenge for a 3rd QB role by year 2.
Cons: He has less than ideal overall size for the position. Overall, his accuracy is just average. He is better in the short to intermediate areas and has even shown flashes of better accuracy in the quick game. However, there are just too many instances of receivers uncovering and having to adjust their body to make tough catches. This severely limits their their yards after catch and ultimately doesn’t allow their offense to effectively utilize their assets. He has a tendency to lock on his primary receiver and has instances of forcing the ball into tight windows. Several instances of ill advised throws over the course of the game and seems to rarely go through a full progression and hit his check down. He has been sufficient on 3rd downs due to his ability to extend plays and be a threat with his legs when nothing is there.
