2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Andy Dalton, QB, TCU
As an upperclassman Dalton emerged as a better leader and the TCU defense was not the only story. Dalton ended the year throwing for 2,756 yards and 23 touchdowns. He even rushed for 512 yards and three more scores. The numbers got even better in 2010 when Dalton threw for 2,857 yards and 27 touchdowns. He also completed an amazing 66.1 percent of his passes and threw just six interceptions. And, yet again, Dalton did plenty of damage with his feet and rushed for six scores.
TCU's offense never gets the credit it deserves, but that pretty much went out the window following their Rose Bowl victory over Wisconsin. That victory has also catapulted Dalton's draft stock and he will get another opportunity to boost his stock even more during the Senior Bowl. Dalton is a smart quarterback who can make most of the throws asked of him. He is not fast, but he is quick and can avoid the rush. His biggest drawback will be his size. Listed at 6-3, Dalton is really closer to 6-1 and in a draft class full of big quarterbacks, that may be what ends up hurting Dalton the most.
