Kessler was a 3-yer starter at USC, where he was highly productive, with great experience, and great numbers overall, and great accuracy, but some will question the system, as we have not seen a USC quarterback come into the NFL and succeed since Carson Palmer, but when it is all said and done, I expect Kessler to be a mid round pick, somewhere in the 4th-5th round range.


has good accuracy

good arm strength

a solid shotgun QB

he has decent size

a 3-year starter

highly productive


He tends to overthrow his receivers at times

he does not have great mobility or good speed

the concern is with USC QBs not doing so well in the NFL so will that continue with Kessler
