Projected Round
Two-year starter who earned MVFC Newcomer of the Year in 2016 after transferring from the University of Illinois and received Second Team All-MVFC honors. Senior season ended after six games due to injury. Finished his career with 204 completions on 383 attempts for 2,660 yards, 21 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
College quarterback who will likely be given consideration at running back this summer. Patient in the pocket, stands strong against the rush and displays a sense of timing on throws. Effectively sells ball fakes, easily gets outside the pocket and loses nothing throwing on the move. Has a big arm and drives passes down the field. Very effective carrying the ball, displaying the agility necessary to turn the corner. Strong, runs hard on the inside and picks up big yardage off initial contact.
Tosses the ball into covered targets. Inaccurate throwing on the move and can be all over the place with throws.
Bailey is a solid athlete with a live arm who is also a threat picking up yardage with his legs. He lacks the accuracy to line up under center on Sundays but has enough speed, quickness and strength to get consideration carrying the ball.
