– Keith Price‘s impressive 2013 debut — 324 yards passing, two touchdowns, one pick and newfound mobility — has put him back on the radar of NFL scouts. From NFL.com analyst Bucky Brooks:
Those numbers are certainly solid, but it was his efficiency as a passer and playmaker that stood out most to me. Price worked the ball to all areas of the field, but avoided forcing throws into tight windows. Additionally, he displayed the trademark athleticism that put him on the radar as a spectacular sophomore. If Price can continue to build upon the momentum created by his impressive debut, he could become a relevant player in the 2014 quarterback class discussion.

I’ll host a live chat here at noon, and then I’ll put the finishing touches on another story about the “fast track” UW offense, this looking more closely at the between-play mechanics of what goes into going so fast.
