Biography: Four-year starter awarded All-American and all-conference honors last season. Senior totals included 58.1%/4089 yards/38 TDs/12 interceptions after he had 59.6%/3459/33/12 as a junior.
Positives: Underrated small school passer with NFL-type skills. Patient in the pocket, knows where his receivers are on the field and possesses a big-time arm. Remains poised under the rush and buys time for receivers. Gets rid of the ball with a flick of his wrist, loses nothing throw and on the move and possesses an explosive release. Puts speed on out patterns, can drive the deep throw and consistently places passes were his receivers have an opportunity to make the reception. Powers the ball through tight spots.
Negatives: Does not consistently set up with proper footwork or release the ball off his top foot. Stares down the primary target, does not always find the safety and forces the ball into covered receivers. Struggles to picks up yards with his legs.
Analysis: Simoneau possesses the underlying physical skills to play at the next level yet needs to polish his technique and decision-making. He offers a good degree of upside and is worth a spot on a practice squad.
