McGough is not a name that stands out in this highly coveted draft class. The four-year starter for Florida International has not been a name brought up much in this class. Currently projected by most to be a 6th round or later developmental prospect. In 2017, McGough completed 65 percent of his of his passes for 2,798 yards, 17 TDs, and 8 INTs.
Play action deep pass
According to PFF’s Draft Guide, McGough had an overall adjusted completion percentage of 74%, good for 13th overall.
When under pressure he had a 61.9% adjusted completion percentage and an 81.9 NFL QB rating.
Ability to elude rushers, re-acquire his receivers and throw on the run
Deep passing ratings per PFF had McGough at a 91.9 NFL QB rating, but an adjusted completion percentage of 39.6%.
Drops it in the bucket with some touch
McGough broke his collarbone during the Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl to end his senior season. The injury has prevented him from participating in many of the all-star and other events draft prospects typically are doing this time of year. But he seems like a player that has a good amount of athleticism to his game.
Interesting to see the Bills looking this deep into the QB class. Although Bills fans should not be shocked as methodical and detailed are words often associated with both Brandon Beane and Sean McDermott.
Yankee concept throw on the money
Looks like the Bills are really leaving no stone unturned in their hunt to solidify the quarterback position.
