Scouting Report: Kyle Lauletta, QB, Richmond

Exton, PA | 6022 | 215 | 4.72E | 2018

This quarterback is something to get excited about with his ability to make rare throws and arm strength—this kid can wing it! He operates a shotgun-based run/pass option style offense. Flashes zip, can make all the throws and will adjust his touch on throws depending on the situation. He possesses the pocket sense to get rid of the ball right before the pocket collapses and can nail the out route from the opposite side hash mark like no problem! He must learn how to slide and avoid unnecessary hits. He takes too many blows to the upper body and has already endured a torn ACL injury in the season finale of his 2016 campaign. He also suffers from a bad wide receiver group that drops a lot of passes that should be completed. His command and leadership during the Spiders comeback win versus Albany was outstanding. He has been praised by the coaching staff for his great leadership and intangibles. With his ability to thread the needle like few quarterbacks coming out of college can, combined with his instincts and quick release, it would come to no surprise to see him selected on day two of the NFL Draft.
