Getting to know … Iowa QB Stanzi

Ricky Stanzi
Height: 6’4″
Weight: 230 lbs.
College: Iowa
Conference: Big Ten
Position: QB

Overview: Stanzi possesses the mental makeup and on-field moxy of a starting NFL quarterback but still has quite a bit of development left before he’s ready. Can be a playmaker when using his feet to buy extra time, scrambling to throw, and allowing receivers more time to break free. Is accurate on shorter passes but must improve consistency on intermediate and deep routes. Flashes the ability to go through his progressions but ultimately still locks onto primary targets and forces too many throws. If Stanzi can improve his accuracy, awareness and footwork, could be a good one.

Noteworthy: Ranked fourth in the Big Ten and 12th nationally in passing efficiency (157.63), setting an Iowa single-season record. … Posted 26-9 record as starting quarterback, ranking second among Iowa quarterbacks in career victories. … One of five finalists for 2010 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, and one of five finalists for Premier player of the year award.
