Breakdown: Mettenberger’s size and arm strength make him the ideal pro-style quarterback for offensive coordinator Gary Crowton.
He’s listed on the Butler Community College roster at 6-foot-5, 247-pounds, but he’s now dropped into the 230-range.
He can make all the throws, with good touch when finding holes in zones and going over the top in man coverage. His size allows him to see the field clearly, and seldom are defensive linemen able to get their hands on his passes.
In high school he often scrambled when protection broke down, but coaches are impressed with how much he’s improved his pocket presence between time at Georgia and Butler CC. He has great patience, and when he rolls out he becomes very effective going to his right.
