2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Sean Canfield, QB, Oregon State

Despite being a three year starter, Canfield has not played that much for the Beavers. He red shirted in 2005 and began playing the following season. Canfield posted decent numbers while playing a limited role in 2006: in nine games, he threw for 335 yards (28-45) with a pair of TDs and two INTs. He started all eleven games in 2007, producing 1,661 passing yards on 165-286 (57.7 completition percentage) with 9 TDs and 15 INTs. His junior campaign last year was cut short due to a shoulder injury. Canfield shows good touch and timing. He has a quick release and throws with accuracy, and makes quick reads. He has good pass rush awareness in the pocket; he is a tough competitor. However, Canfield lacks bulk and strength. He has only average speed (4.96) and elusiveness. Deep balls tend to flutter as he doesn't put great velocity on deep outs. He needs to do a better job taking care of the ball. He tends to make poor decisions when trying to force a pass into coverage. Also, he will have some lingering injury concerns. Canfield does not have exceptional physical tools, but his competitiveness should enable him to make it to training camp. At this time, he projects as a late round pick--maybe the sixth. Canfield could improve his stock with an impressive showing at the NFL Combine.

Prediction: 6th Round

Some team will see what he did his senior year and bring himin to develop only to see his weak arm and poor huddle command in person.
