Kiel was productive for only playing in 29 games, where he had 505 completions, for 6835 passing yards, 56 passing touchdowns, and only 26 interceptions. He has good size, good arm strength, has a ice deep ball, has good instincts, is good under pressure, and is a nice pocket passer. He is also a decent running quarterback, fits the ball into tight spaces nicely, and has good vision of the field. He is not the most accurate quarterback, he is inconsistent at times, which led to being benched, he does not have great speed, gets sacked quite a bit, and not the most mobile quarterback. With that said, I see Kiel as a late round pick at best.
