Pos: 
Super-elusive quarterback with an underrated game. Patient in the pocket, buys as much time as necessary and steps up to avoid defenders. Takes off up the field only when necessary and is a legitimate threat with the ball in his hands. Effectively sells ball fakes, possesses a quick release and takes the safe underneath outlet if nothing else is available. Displays good timing on throws, can drive his deep passes and flashes outstanding pass placement. Shows the ability to put deep throws in front of targets, puts air under long passes and lets receivers run to the ball. Resilient, stands in the pocket and takes a big hit in order to get the throw away.
Neg: 
Lacks size and pocket stature. Needs to improve his downfield accuracy.
Analysis: 
Christion was a terrific small-school signal caller who lost headlines to conference opponent Easton Stick. He's been dismissed by many but possesses the athleticism, arm strength and overall awareness to play at the next level. Unlikely to be selected in the draft, Christian is a priority free agent who should find his way onto a practice squad this fall.
