Kizer's 2015 season at Notre Dame was first-round quality tape, according to Rookie Scouting Portfolio author Matt Waldman. Where Kizer fails most often falls under the realm of where most career starters struggle: processing information into action at a quick enough speed to exploit defenses in key moments. If forced to play early, Kizer will struggle in this respect but the Browns defense make Kizer a garbage-time compiler.

Summary

Kizer, a second-round rookie, is large and athletic. If he's able to learn the intricacies of commanding an offense and reading NFL defenses, he should make plays with his arms and his legs. The "cons" on Kizer are that he struggled to hold on to his job at Notre Dame. He also has plenty of work to do with his decision-making and mental capacity to be an NFL quarterback. (May 13)
