It’s always hard to evaluate small school prospects and it becomes even harder when they are Division 2, but Tyson Bagent is a man among boys at Shepherd. Even though he is a Division 2 guy, Bagent has an NFL arm. He can air the ball out enough and he can hit it with velocity when he needs to. Now obviously he has bigger windows to throw, but he’s fairly accurate and I would not be concerned about him making accurate throws at the next level. However, he will have to adjust to the window size for the NFL. Bagent does not scramble much, but when he does he’s effective. He will not make many people miss or run through many people, but he can pick up good yardage when it is necessary. Bagent does not face a lot of pressure, because of how good his whole team is, but when he does he handles it relatively well. Same with playing out of structure, he doesn’t experience very many plays out of structure but does okay when he has to make something happen. Mechanics wise, Bagent is technically sound and I have no concerns.
