An NFC area scout told Walter Football's Charlie Campbell that Mississippi State redshirt sophomore QB Nick Fitzgerald is "basically a faster better arm version of [Tim] Tebow."
Scouts lazily threw around Tebow comps for Fitzgerald's predecessor Dak Prescott, mostly because Prescott was running the same Dan Mullen offense that Tebow did at Florida. The comp works better on Fitzgerald, who, ala Tebow, is a raw passer but a supremely gifted runner with a thick frame. The scout mentioned that Mullen has groomed Josh Harris, Alex Smith, Tebow, Prescott, and now Fitzgerald, and actually coached Cam Newton longer than Gus Malzahn did. "Four of those six had barely one offer coming out of high school," he said. "I'd trust Dan Mullen to develop a quarterback over Malzahn. Fitzgerald just broke his school season total offense record following the best player in school history and Fitzgerald is just three years removed from running a Wing T offense in Georgia high school. Plus he's 6-foot-4, 230-pounds." Fitzgerald was one of the biggest surprises of 2016, putting forth a 21/10 TD/INT ratio throwing while adding 1,375 yards on the ground. May 17 - 4:14 PM
