Draft Dossier: Tony Pike

Tony Pike: Quarterback, Senior – Cincinnati

Height\Weight: 6’5″, 225

Career stats: 27 games played, 5018 yards passing, 61.7% completion rate, 49 TDs, 20 INTs

40-time: 4.93

Went 21-4 as the Bearcats starter in 2008 and 2009. Led them to back-to-back Big East titles. Pike is tall, rangy and athletic. Displays excellent vision and throws with poise and accuracy. Moves well inside the pocket and can throw on the run. Very intelligent and has plenty of big game experience. Needs to add weight. Suffered a string of injuries in five years. Played in a shotgun offense. Arm strength is good, not great. Likely a mid-round selection.

Best attributes: Accuracy and vision.

Weaknesses: Durability and mechanics.

Reminds me of: Jason Campbell, Redskins. Campbell can make all the necessary throws, but succumbs to mental lapses at the wrong times.

Why he should be an Eagle: The Birds need a developmental quarterback behind Kevin Kolb. Reid has had success with former Bearcats Trent Cole and Brent Celek. Pike will need solid coaching and must get stronger, but he would make an ideal fourth- or fifth-round prospect.
