Overview:

Kizer was very productive at Notre Dame, with over 5800 passing yards, 47 passing touchdowns, and only 19 interceptions. He has great size, he has good speed, is very mobile, is a great running quarterback, and is very accurate. He also has a strong arm. However he forces some throws, and is inconsistent at times. He is primarily a shotgun quarterback, so he will have to get used to being under center. But because of the potential, I view Kizer as a late 1st, to early 2nd round pick when it is all said and done.
