Patrick Witt - QB - Yale

By Joe Everett on Thursday, 26th April 2012

patrick-wittWitt started his collegiate career in Nebraska but opted to transfer to Yale after Bill Callahan was fired.

He is highly intelligent and shouldn’t have too much trouble adjusting to a new offense but his background and character concerns are large.

Not only did Witt have some incidents while at Nebraska but he also had a run-in at a night club while at Yale

A former Rhodes Scholarship candidate and highly touted recruit out of  high school, Witt definitely regressed through his collegiate career but does have a chance to get on as a backup with the right team.

A more cerebral pocket passer that can pick apart defenses from close within, Witt may not have great arm strength but he understands when to torque down and deliver a touch pass or rip the football to squeeze a pass into a tight window.
