2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Mitch Mustain, QB, USC
Then Mustain fell out of favor with Arkansas coach Houston Nutt and opted to transfer to USC. In 2008, after sitting out a year due to NCAA transfer rules, Mustain was the backup to Mark Sanchez. In limited action, he completed 11 of his 16 passes for 157 yards and two touchdowns. The following season Mustain lost out on the starting job to Matt Barkley. He could have left USC after that, but opted to stick around and be the backup, which he was for the rest of his collegiate career. There is a history of backup USC quarterbacks doing perfectly fine in the NFL and that is what Mustain is banking on right now.
Mustain has a ton of experience in a pro style offense and that should get him drafted as a late round flyer. Sure that experience is on the practice field and Mustain has done nothing to prove that he can be a more efficient quarterback than he was at Arkansas when he threw way too many interceptions, but he was just a freshman back then. Mustain will measure out well in the pre-draft workouts and some team can have a quarterback who knows what to expect at the next level with a late round pick.
