Mental

Is he instinctual? Does he play with urgency?

Has shown some big comebacks when kept clean in pocket. More a prepared player than instinctual. Always knows the situation. Works to fall forward as a rusher. … Doesn't show ability to improvise. Seemingly not fully trusted by coaches in big situations, with a tendency to take the ball out of his hands (for All-American RB).

Technical

Does he have a refined skill set? Is he a projection or is his game developed enough to contribute early?

Three-year team captain. Makes some checks pre-snap. Always in sync with offense through drop. Above the line decisions, taking what the defense gives him and flashing ability to get through three reads. Adequate ability to torque through core. Rhythm passer who is accurate when throwing to a low to intermediate spot. Flashes touch to drop passes over LBs. Keeps eyes up v pressure and has a single slide or climb to evade rusher. … Frequently skewed in drop. Nervous feet in the pocket, showing easy tell of stopping feet before throw. Nearly always throwing off back foot, failing to transfer any weight. When throwing off front foot, hyperextends plant knee and will kick back foot. Limited placement when throwing to moving receiver, failing to anticipate. Limited arm strength, survives on touch alone for deep or cross-field intermediate routes. Panics after mental timer expires and will vacate clean pockets. Indecisive outside structure and makes limited decisions out of rhythm, especially running into sacks. Lacks athleticism to evade second rushers. Won't be able to scramble at the next level. Has too many passes batted at LOS.

Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
Senior who has started 46 of 48 career games, including all 13 in 2021. Three-star recruit with MILB father who took over in the fifth game of his freshman season and never conceded the starting job. Won Big 12 FOTY and Honorable Mention All-Big 12 in 2018, followed by 2019 Second Team All-Big 12 and both 2020 and 2021 First Team All-Big 12. Under HC Matt Campbell (sixth season), OC Tom Manning (third season), and PGC/QBs Coach Joel Gordon (fourth season), Purdy led a run-first offense that ran mostly Mesh concepts or Hitch routes in pass. Low-end backup you can win despite in a timing-based offense. Leader who can distribute on-time to other offensive weapons and will protect the ball. Doesn't have desired size, arm strength, accuracy, or mobility.
