As an Aggie fan, I hope he drafts. We need someone new at the helm.
He gets most of his rushing yards on scrambles and broken plays. Very rarely does he do it on designed runs. LSU and Missouri both have good fronts that can rush the passer. They got after him, but kept him in the pocket and took that part of his game away. His struggles were obvious. In the two games against LSU and Missouri....

40/76 (52.6%) for 419 yards with 2 TD's and 2 INT's.
23 rushes for 75 yards.

He has improved his pocket passing this year, but his game is still reliant on getting out of the pocket and improvising. Keep him contained to the pocket the entire game and he's nowhere near as effective. That's been my main criticism of him all year long. This is exactly how NFL teams will attack him and he hasn't proven that he can succeed as a pocket passer.
