Summary

Herbert enters the league as the prototypical "talented but raw" prospect. He carries a top-five draft pedigree, fresh off four dynamic years at Oregon. There, Herbert showcased a powerful, confident arm and the ability to beat defenses over the top. He also showed mobility on designed runs and tested beautifully across the board at the combine. Still, he was rarely asked to read his way across the field and deliver on NFL-type touch throws. It seems unlikely he'll convince coach Anthony Lynn to start him on Opening Day, but it's certainly possible as Lynn thoroughly rebuilds the offense. Once he hits the field, Herbert will likely profile as a low-end QB2, blending in with a handful of similarly risky youngsters. But the upside - working well with big-play dynamo Mike Williams and perhaps chipping in a few rushing points each week - is definitely there, right off the bat. (May 2)
