Scouting Report: Thomas Sirk, QB, Duke

Glen St. Mary, FL | 6032 | 220 | 4.85E | 2018

Operates primarily from shotgun with high number of run/pass/option plays. Possesses somewhat of an elongated delivery. Was disappointed with some of his decision-maker as a sixth-year player. Is quick to tuck and run but is not a smart runner; takes unnecessary big hits and lacks the speed required to be an effective scrambler at the next level. Has a history of injuries, including an ACL tear in 2016 and was placed in the concussion protocol after taking an early exit in a loss to West Virginia early in 2017. A transfer from Duke, he has struggled during his transition with the Pirates, which has caused his draft stock to pummel. His four-year experience with Duke head coach and noted quarterback guru David Cutcliffe will likely earn him a UDFA look following the NFL Draft.
