About Jarrett Stidham
Jarrett Stidham had an unusual college career as he was extremely successful between two programs – Baylor and Auburn, leading both schools to prime time bowl appearances. Beginning in the offense heavy Big 12, he put up video game numbers in his appearances as a freshman, with a 199 passer rating in his ten games, throwing 12 touchdowns on only 109 pass attempts. After sitting one year during his transfer he managed to throw 36 touchdowns to only 11 interceptions over his final two years with the Tigers.
Stidham is an interesting prospect as he has all of the traditional physical tools you’d like to see in a quarterback with his size and strong arm, but also is an above average runner.
