Matt Corral has the athleticism NFL scouts and GM's want in today's QB, and he can extend plays outside of the pocket and is accurate while on the move. In addition, he can extend drives in key third-down situations with his legs.
Corral benefits from the use of an RPO-heavy scheme. He is also very with zone read. His ability to put pressure on a defense with his legs is a paramount aspect of his game but can be an issue in the NFL, where athletes are faster at every position. He will have to learn to get down quickly and not take unnecessary contact.
As a passer, Corral is a player who will need to be in an offense that uses a lot of quick throws and RPO's to get the ball out fast early in his career so that he can improve his ability to go through progressions and to take the check down if available. He doesn't possess an elite arm, but he does possess good mechanics and a quick release. His decision-making has improved since 2020, he does not take as many risks, but it is something to keep an eye on. He did worse with throws under pressure than when kept clean in 2021.
