Overview:

Beathard had a nice career at Iowa, completing 454 passes, for 5562 yards, 40 passing touchdowns, and only 19 interceptions. He has good size, has good arm strength, good mobility, a great deep ball, and a play maker with his arm. He also has a nice quick release, he threads the needle so to speak, and fits the ball into tight spaces with ease, and he makes something out of nothing when the play breaks down, or there is no one open to throw to. However he does not have great speed, and he is not the most accurate quarterback. With that said, I see Beathard as a late round pick at best, but more than likely he will go undrafted.
