Chandler Harnish, QB, Northern Illinois

So much of the quarterback position is played above the shoulders that scouting is less about the physical tools and more about what that quarterback does with his physical tools. Northern Illinois quarterback prospect Chandler Harnish is the type of player who shows you what he does with those physical tools.

With adequate height and a solid arm to go with it, Harnish is an intriguing middle round prospect who at times does things his own way; whether it be changing his release point or throwing the ball off his back foot, he just gets the job done. His teammates rally around him and he's got all the right leadership qualities. One thing that can be measured is his consistent accuracy. Harnish can definitely hit the target in the numbers with regularity.

Harnish does well to read through his progressions, look off his primary receiver and has a natural feel for the pocket. He's got a sharp, concise delivery and can make most every throw in the playbook. His technique will need polish, but more importantly he'll have to learn when to use more sound fundamentals and when it is okay to improvise. A nice added bonus is that he has pretty good mobility.
