Overview:

Russell was very productive at Baylor, completing 345 passes, for 5491 passing yards, 60 passing touchdowns, and only 18 interceptions. He has good size, has a great deep ball, is a good running quarterback, has decent speed, has a strong arm, and is a good pocket passer. He is also a play maker with his arm, and legs, is a tough player, has good instincts, is hard to take down when running, he runs over defenders, and has a knack of making something out of nothing. He also had a great deep ball. On the other side, he has had injury issues at Baylor, which cost him most of the 2015 season, he needs to get used to playing under center, he takes some unnecessary hits, and sacks, and is not the most accurate passer. With that said, I see Russell as a late round pick, but more than likely he will go undrafted.
