Any thoughts on Russell as an NFL prospect? It's a pretty limited sample combining last year and the two games so far, but curious if he is worthy of being on the radar as an NFL prospect at this point in time. Does he have a decent amount of upside?


Tyler Russell
College : Mississippi State Bulldogs
Position : QB

Tyler Russell Mississippi State Bulldogs Official Bio

Quote:
09/10/12 - WEEK 2 SEC OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Tyler Russell, Quarterback, Mississippi State...Russell led Mississippi State to a 28-10 victory over Auburn in the SEC opener for both teams, State's first win in an SEC opener since 1999. He completed 20-of-29 passes for 222 yards and three touchdowns without an interception. Russell led the Bulldogs on three touchdown drives in its first four second half possessions as State scored 21 unanswered points to seal the game. He completed passes to nine different receivers. - SEC football

09/08/12 - Tyler Russell threw for 222 yards and three touchdowns, Marcus Green caught two touchdown passes and Mississippi State easily beat Auburn 28-10 on Saturday at Davis Wade Stadium. Auburn briefly took a 10-7 lead when Onterio McCalebb returned a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown to open the second half, but Mississippi State (2-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) responded with 21 unanswered points. Auburn (0-2, 0-1) struggled through an awful offensive performance. Kiehl Frazier completed 13 of 22 passes for 125 yards, three interceptions and two lost fumbles. The victory broke a string of unsavory trends for the Bulldogs. They had lost 10 out of the last 11 against Auburn - including four straight - and hadn't won an SEC opener since 1999. It was also coach Dan Mullen's first victory against the SEC Western Division's best four teams. He was 0-12 combined against Alabama, LSU, Arkansas and Auburn until Saturday's breakthrough. The big reason for the victory was Russell, who was deadly accurate when given time in the pocket. The 6-foot-5, 210-pound junior completed 20 of 29 passes and didn't throw an interception. LaDarius Perkins added 83 yards rushing and a touchdown. Auburn's offense wasn't very good in a season-opening 26-19 loss to Clemson last weekend, and it took another step backward against the Bulldogs. - AP Sports

09/05/12 - SCOUTING THE OFFENSE: MSU did not open up the playbook against Jackson State, and it didn't have to. Quarterback Tyler Russell completed 15 of 23 passes for 175 yards and two touchdowns, and some of his misfires were on forced throws. The good news for the Bulldogs, offensive coordinator Les Koenning said, is that Wilson took a cue from each mistake. One such mistake, when he forced a throw on a post pattern, later resulted in a touchdown when he made the right read on the same play. "He read the coverage, changed, different things happened and he read it," Koenning said. "That's a sign of maturity." State will continue with its by-committee approach as well after playing four tailbacks against JSU. LaDarius Perkins (eight carries, 50 yards, two touchdowns) will get the bulk of the carries. - The Sports Xchange

09/01/12 - Tyler Russell completed 15 of 23 passes for 175 yards and two touchdowns to lead Mississippi State to a season-opening 56-9 win over Jackson State on Saturday night. Mississippi State (1-0) opened the game with a 35-point first half, their largest since the 2010 season. The Bulldogs finished the game with 377 yards total offense and did not punt the football until the final minute of the third quarter. Dan Mullen's offense was at its balanced best, with 183 yards passing and 194 yards rushing. LaDarius Perkins rushed for 50 yards and 2 touchdowns. Jackson State (0-1) managed 265 yards of offense and 16 first downs, but turned the ball over three times and struggled to sustain drives against a deeper Bulldog defense. Mississippi State returned two Dedric McDonald interceptions for touchdowns. E.J. Drewery caught a 9-yard pass in the second quarter for the Tigers' lone touchdown of the game. - AP Sports

08/23/12 - For two years, Tyler Russell was the guy pushing Chris Relf to do more and be better. Relf is gone now, though, and Russell is clearly the guy. He started four games last season for Mississippi State and threw for eight touchdowns against four interceptions (while completing 53.4 percent of his passes). At 6-foot-4 and 220 pounds, Russell is more of a passer than Relf ever was, and the offense has adjusted accordingly. There's even been talk of Russell breaking all of MSU's passing records as soon as this season. - The Sports Xchange

He looked ok when I watched him, but nothing really wowed me when I was watching him throw. While I was watching, I didn't get to see him throw any long balls, so I just saw him throwing some short routes.

He does not have the skillset of an NFL passer, at least from what I saw against Auburn. Good size, completed some short passes, just not an NFL prospect to me.

Been watching MS State for awhile now. Their defense has been solid if not great the last couple of years. Vick Ballard was their main offense because their QBs sucked badly. I haven't watched them this season but will this weekend.

He's not even the second best QB named Tyler in the SEC. Laughing

He's got the size and the arm, but he is not very accurate and rarely takes risks.
