Tony Romo

QB | (6-2, 230, 5.0) | Eastern Illinois
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Started once as a redshirt freshman and has been the top gun since. Finished second in NCAA Division I-AA passing efficiency in 2000, was first in '01 and eighth last fall. Completed 24-of-49 attempts for 396 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions in 1999; 164-278-2,583-27-12 in 2000; 138-207-2,068-21-6 in '01; and 258-407-3,165-34-16 in '02. Ohio Valley Conference Offensive Player of the Year in 2000, '01 and '02. Won the Walter Payton Award at the best player in Division I-AA. Is also a fine golfer and basketball player.

Positives: All-around athlete with very good coordination and timing. Durable, productive quarterback who really has improved his work ethic and become a student of the game. Has a quick release, makes good decisions and is accurate up to 20 yards. Shows some leadership and looks the part.

Negatives: Lacks top arm strength and foot speed and really is helped by playing on a team that often dominates. A little slow to set up. Does not pick up his second and third option as quickly as teams would like. Might think he is better than his talent indicates.

Summary: Lack of arm strength is a concern.
