Pos: 
Tough, intelligent signal caller who lacks a next-level arm. Patient in the pocket, remains poised under the rush and makes good decisions. Intuitive, displays a great sense for what's happening on the field and knows where his receivers are. Senses pressure, steps up to avoid defenders and gets rid of the ball to avoid bad sacks. Sits in the pocket and takes a big hit in order to get the throw away. Quickly locates the open wideout and takes the safe underneath outlet if nothing else is available. Accurate, places throws where only his receiver can make the reception and puts touch on passes. Commands and controls the offense. Relatively nimble and displays the ability to get outside the pocket and make the throw on the move.
Neg: 
Really cannot put speed on throws or drive the deep ball. Not elusive and won’t pick up much yardage with his legs.
Analysis: 
Shurmur is a coach’s son and plays like one. He shows a great feel for the game as well as the position but lacks top physical skills. He's unlikely to get drafted, but Shurmur will be given a chance in camp this summer and could make a roster as a third quarterback.
