WHAT THEY ARE SAYING ESPN: Goff is a really crisp pocket passer with a tight, quick release. He has ideal height and adequate bulk already and is only going to get bigger, fill out and should become a powerful passer in time. Goff is very consistent fundamentally and his arm, release and accuracy are very attractive ... He has a very high ceiling for development and his best football is ahead of him. Scout: Goff has great size and can get the ball down the field. He has one of the quickest releases in the nation and can throw some of the longer routes like the deep outs, on a line. He spins it very well and shows great accuracy. For a tall quarterback, he moves around effortlessly in the pocket and has enough athleticism to make that first guy miss and get some positive yards on the ground when the play breaks down.
