Big QB with great size for the position. Absolute cannon of an arm and zips the ball all over the field. Accurate in the short passing game and excels in fitting passes into tight windows. Excellent on slants and digs in between defenders. Struggles with hitting defenders in stride and deep accuracy struggles mightily. Questionable decision-making at times. Throws consistently into double coverage and attempts to make too much happen sometimes. When preparing to get hit, he'll launch the ball instead of eating the sack, which results in some jump ball situations. Washington's offense relies heavily on slants and quick route combinations, which means Eason's getting the ball out of his hands quickly. Excels in this portion of the game. However, tends to lock onto primary read...rarely scans the entirety of the field to see what else is available. It's occasional, but the majority of the time he's locking onto his primary read and trying to force a throw into that receiver. Has a tendency to telegraph his throws as a result. Absolute hose. Great arm strength and drives the ball at all levels of the field. Ball comes out hot and this allows him to drive the ball into tight windows and make it work. All throws have a tendency to be bullets though. Has a tendency to not put touch on his throws and simply laser it in downfield. Decent awareness in the pocket. Shows the ability to step up and keep shoulders relatively square. Only bails when truly has no other option. Will stand in the pocket and take a shot if the pass is there. Good mechanics on short throws. Works through his one or three step drop, rotates through the hips and follows through. Struggles to maintain same dedication on deeper passes. Relies more on his arm strength and will let his footwork get sloppy. Opens his hips a lot. Throws with feet at different numbers on the clock than where he's going. Long release and will often start his passes from his hips and work all the way up. Keeps the ball in that location sometimes when forced to hold and check his pass. Struggles with improvisation. If his primary read isn't there and he's forced to bail out of the pocket, there aren't many examples of him turning that play into a huge positive gain. Decent under pressure and willing to stand in the pocket, but can also become flustered if pressure is bearing in quickly. Throws the ball up in those instances rather than holding and taking the sack. Decent athlete and can move well for his size, but would not be a scrambling QB by any means. Overall, an intriguing prospect that some NFL team is going to take a chance on due to the arm strength. Unless he experiences a meteoric rise through the draft process, will most likely be a Top 50 pick and will have to work his way onto the field. May have very little Fantasy value in 1QB leagues.

Jacob Eason, pick No. 122, officially signs with the Colts

Former Washington QB Jacob Eason, pick No. 122 of the NFL 2020 Draft has signed his four-year rookie contract with the Colts.

Fantasy Impact

Eason was sixth QB selected off the board in the 2020 NFL draft and will compete with Jacoby Brissett to backup starter Phillip Rivers. The fourth-round QB tossed for 3,000 yards and 23 touchdowns for the Huskies last season. Eason will learn under Rivers and could compete for the Colts’ starting QB job in 2021.
