Ryan Nassib is a rather interesting prospect because he’s another three year starter that accomplished a lot in his career at Syracuse. For starters, he led the team to two bowl appearances in three years which wasn’t the case before he took over QB duties from former Duke basketball transfer Greg Paulus. He’s the best QB they’ve had since Donovan McNabb was playing in the late 90’s.

He didn’t have great talent around him but still surpassed milestones, 9000 passing yards and 70TD. I’d say that’s a solid career but of course the record won’t show, similar to Glennon. But Nassib is mobile in the pocket only being sacked 16 times as a senior. He kept Syracuse in games they had no business being in.

Nassib cost his team with his decision-making last season with his performances against Rutgers and USC which were both losses. But he did show up in some big performances late in the season. But two Pinstripe Bowl wins in his career (Kansas State 2010 and West Virginia 2012.)

One game I’ll point out as a signature game was against the Louisville Cardinals going 15-23 for 246 passing yards and 3TDs, by far his best game of the season and maybe his career since it was on Senior Day. Another would be the Pinstripe Bowl upset over West Virginia 38-14 to end his career and the season winning five of his six games to complete a 8-5 (5-2) record.

His head coach at Syracuse Doug Marrone was hired by the Buffalo Bills. Remember Ryan Tannehill last yr. and OC Mike Sherman. They were at Texas a&M in 2011 and that helped them both. Chemistry is vital with Quarterbacks and coaches.

He compares to Christian Ponder or Jake Locker in some cases, but a better one from me would be closer to an Andy Dalton type, average size and an above average arm. Nassib didn’t have that much talent around him as I mentioned before but to have two bowl wins in three years as a starter is not too shabby.

He`s a smart guy who will take his chances but will be able to manage the game early in his career like Joe Flacco and Andy Dalton did as rookies.

He’s more accurate than Mike Glennon and I feel like he could be around in the early 2nd for the Bills, Jets, Jaguars, etc. The best bet for him would be with the Buffalo Bills with RB CJ Spiller, and WR Stevie Johnson. Maybe they can develop to start winning in the post-Brady era.
