Orton, who is six-foot-four and 225 pounds, is solidly built. His arm is strong, and he has the ability to hit receivers on just about any throw. He is tough, can take hits and puts plenty of zip on the ball. He’s still raw and developing and needs to continue working on reading defenses, finding open receivers and checking off safeties. He’s got some good experience, has fine potential and could be a good professional QB.
