Gruden has come away impressed with Nassib’s ability to learn quickly. He noted that Nassib had “a lot of freedom” at Syracuse to switch plays and read the field.
“He’s functioned in a couple of different offenses,” Gruden said. “What they did this year at Syracuse, changing their offense two weeks before the regular season, says a lot about this kid’s ability to adapt.”
Gruden said that Nassib’s size, arm strength and athleticism are assets. He called Nassib “a nuisance runner” and believes Nassib could run the read-option on the NFL level.
Gruden also liked what he saw from Nassib in late-game situations with the Orangemen.
Granted, Gruden's track record at identifying young quality QBs is awful (the closest thing he has to a success story is Shaun King), but he's considered credible nonetheless, so it's still interesting. Any chance Nassib could be this year's Christian Ponder, as in a guy widely considered a 2nd rounder who somehow sneaks into the top 15 picks?
