Scouting Report on Joe Boisture

How we scouted: Film footage, In-person visits, Game setting, Campby Barry Every - 09/21/2009

  • AgilityDivision I Player

On the Hoof: Very tall, yet lean body with long arms and has the look of a basketball small forward. Boisture reminds me physically of a taller version of Stanford quarterback Josh Nunes.
Needs Improvement: Has a long and deliberate throwing motion that needs to either be shortened or more zip needs to be put on the ball. Adding some muscle mass and strength will make him more durable and a hard target to bring down.
Most Impressive: Has excellent accuracy and very good spin on his passes. Boisture also has excellent height and can see the whole field, regardless how big his future offensive line is.
Conclusion: Has a ton of upside, so if he can afford to redshirt and learn the system while he physically matures, he could start battling for playing time early in his career. The NFL loves huge quarterbacks and he will eventually be Ben Roethlisberger-size.
