Scouting Report (3/28/2020) Colten Gauthier is a terrific quarterback prospect who possesses a good height/weight combo at this stage and is only going to get stronger once he is in a college strength and conditioning program. He possesses deceptive mobility and athleticism and has sparingly been used as a runner.
Colten plays with intelligence, makes good pre-snap reads and will go through his progressions. He demonstrates good toughness and can stand in the pocket, take a hit and deliver the ball. He is confident with command of the scheme and can run the offense from the line of scrimmage. He maintains poise and focus scanning the field and rarely do his eyes come down to pressure in his face.
Colten is an accurate passer and throws a very catchable ball when he sets his feet, addresses his target and steps into his throw. He plants and delivers off the drop with ease. He will stick it on them in tight spaces and does not miss the strike zone much. His footwork, balance, weight transfer are all consistently sound and shows the ability to consistently drop the ball in over the top of coverage.
He has a quick, smooth stroke and the ball flips off his hand in a fluid and compact manner. He appears to have very good arm strength with quick and good timing. He plays pitch and catch and throws to a spot with terrific anticipation.
Overall, Colton is an intelligent and mobile athlete that plays with good vision and patience in the pocket. He appears to have a tremendous upside with continued development to his skill set and physical make up. He still has plenty to work on but is the type of quarterback that thrives under Mike Bobo and could develop into a star at the next level.
