Prospect Profile: Zack Mills
Zack Mills School: Penn State Ht: 6-2.5 Wt: 215 40: 4.81 Year: 5Sr Bio: Threw for 57.8%/1,722/9/12 as a senior. Posted career numbers of 56.5%/2,417/17/10 as a sophomore. Moved in and out of the starting lineup since he was a red-shirt freshman. Positives: Tough, left-handed passer with good leadership abilities. Sets up with solid footwork, patient and goes to the safe underneath outlet if nothing is available down the field. Sells the ball fakes, does not panic under the rush and takes a hit in order to get the throw off. Remains poised if the play breaks down and always working to make something positive happen. Negatives: Not an elusive quarterback who can escape the rush. Holds the ball a bit long in the pocket. Stares down the primary receiver. Cannot drive the deep throw. Analysis: After a solid sophomore campaign, Mills has watched his play level off the past two seasons. And though a well-sized pocket passer, does not possess the arm strength necessary for the vertical game.
