Pos: 
Strong-armed quarterback with excellent upside potential for the next level. Patient in the pocket, effectively commands and controls the offense and goes through progressions to look for the open target. Naturally looks off the safety, has a strong arm and easily gets the ball through tight windows. Effectively sells ball fakes, puts touch on throws when necessary and shows the ability to get outside the pocket and deliver the ball. Keeps his eyes down the field on the move and looks for the open wideout. Puts air under deep throws and lets receivers run to the ball. Throws with an over-the-top delivery and flashes the ability to precisely place passes.
Neg: 
Puts receivers in precarious positions, makes them extend for the ball in a crowd and gets them clobbered. Spent his college career with losing programs at the small-school level.
Analysis: 
Linta possesses the physical and mental skills to play at the next level and just needs more experience before he's NFL-ready. He's worth a spot on a practice squad and has the ability to develop into a backup for a roster.
