Overview:

Shimonek finished his career at Texas Tech, where he played in 20 career games, has 367 completions, for 4445 passing yards, along with 39 touchdowns, 11 interceptions, and a completion percentage of 66.4. He has good size, he has good accuracy, and he has a strong arm. He also has a good deep ball, along with good pocket awareness. He has god patience in the pocket, and gets the ball out quickly when needed. He puts the ball where his receiver can get it, he fits the ball into tight spots with ease, and he distributes the ball to all of his receivers, and backs. He also has good instincts, and is a tough nosed player. On the other hand, he takes too many sacks, he is not known as a running quarterback, he does not the the best speed, and he is not as experienced as other quarterbacks are, as he sat behind Patrick Mahomes. With that said, I view Shimonek as a potential day 3 pick.
