Overview:

Kaaya was highly productive at Miami, with nearly 10,000 passing yards, 69 passing touchdowns, and 720 completions. He has the size, good arm strengths, a nice deep ball, and he is poised under pressure. He also has good instincts, and does a good job of distributing the ball between is backs and receivers. On the other hand, he is inconsistent, he is not as accurate as the other top QBs, and took a lot of sacks. He has the talent to be a 1st round pick, but I expect him to be a early day 3 pick, likely being a early to mid 4th round pick, I can also see him dropping a bit, likely into the 5th round.
