Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, Patriots
2015 Outlook: Deep-league OnlyLast updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs
In very limited action during his first year in the NFL, Garoppolo completed 70.4 percent of his 27 passes with one touchdown. Jimmy has decent size (6 feet 3, 226 pounds) and a quick release. Most of his plays were from the shotgun in college, and he rarely saw pressure. Garoppolo sells the play-action fake and the pump fake very well. His arm is solid, but he throws too many passes without a tight spin. Jimmy isn't a threat in the running game (4.97 40-yard dash at the 2014 combine), but he can make the occasional play on the ground, as evidenced by his eight career rushing scores at Eastern Illinois. Garoppolo, a four-year starter in college, finished his career with 13,156 passing yards, 118 TDs and 51 interceptions. Garoppolo's ability to read defenses will be challenged in the much faster NFL. He is a player with upside, and the Patriots may have no choice but to see what he can do for them for the first month of the 2015 campaign.
