What scouts are saying:
"Pure dropback, strong-armed thrower who will require patient, confidence-building play-calling and a clean pocket to function at a high level in the NFL. Has starter talent in a vertical, downfield passing attack if he can learn to take command of a huddle and continue progressing as a decision-maker." (Nolan Nawrocki, NFL.com)
"He has the NFL size and arm strength and has flashed the improved decision-making and anticipation to be a potential starter in the NFL. He is still developing and has the psyche that needs to be massaged some. The ACL injury and maturity concerns are red flags and potentially damaging to his draft stock, but his natural traits grade him as a solid day two draft pick." (Rob Rang, CBSSports.com)
"Mettenberger massively improved his game in 2013 under the direction of offensive coordinator Cam Cameron. The senior's accuracy, decision-making, field vision and fundamentals were exceptionally better. Unfortunately for Mettenberger, he suffered a torn ACL late in the season, and it could come back to hurt him on draft day as he was unable to participate in the Senior Bowl and NFL Scouting Combine.
