Jacob Eason Heat Maps

It was an impressive freshman year for Jacob Eason, but still plenty of room for improvement

Despite shaky results as a team in Kirby Smart’s first year as head coach, Georgia clearly has the quarterback it needs to rebuild the program. Jacob Eason is coming off a promising freshman year in which he showed the potential to develop into an elite passer.

Using our new heat map tool we charted all of his passes from the 2016 season and broke them down into two charts. On the left are his completions and the on the right are his incompletions.

Eason clearly excels within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage, especially on the right side. But there is plenty of room for improvement down the field.

Arm strength is never an issue for Eason, so as he becomes more comfortable and patient in the pocket, he should improve his downfield productivity. Eason is a strong candidate to be one of the most improved quarterbacks in the nation in 2017.
