Pos: 
Three-year starter who completed 51.6 percent of his throws as a senior with 16 TDs and nine interceptions. Also added 1,121 yards rushing with 13 TDs. Large college quarterback who projects to another position at the next level. Possesses a strong arm, puts touch on throws and throws a catchable ball. Keeps his eyes downfield, withstands the rush and shows dangerous ability as a ball carrier. Plays with an aggressive style, drives his shoulders through defenders and consistently picks up positive yardage with his legs.
Neg: 
Stares down the primary target. Late with throws and telegraphs too many passes. Tosses the ball into double and sometimes triple coverage. Tends to fall out of throws and doesn’t properly follow through over his top foot.
Analysis: 
After a tremendous sophomore campaign, Fitzgerald watched his game regress the following two seasons. He's an athletic prospect who’s dangerous as a ball carrier but will have to find another position at the next level, most likely tight end.
