Bio: Full-time starter the past two seasons throwing for 54.8%/2,860/23/12 as a senior after 1,848 yards and 12 touchdowns the prior year.
Pos: Tough, pocket passer best in the short field. Sells the play-action pass, goes through receiver progressions and looks off the safety. Buys time for receivers and accurately zips the short throws.
Neg: Lacks a big arm and cannot drive the ball downfield. Off the mark outside of 15 yards. Not a nimble quarterback who can elude the rush.
Analysis: Effectively commanding the Southern Miss offense for two years, Almond lacks the pure physical skills to play at the next level and is at best a third quarterback.
