13 DAYS UNTIL THE DRAFT...
Left-handed quarterbacks are a rare breed in the NFL. And even more rare as starters. I am not sure that Canfield has what it takes to start in the NFL but he did a lot of good things at the college level. That can be said for sure.
He red-shirted as a freshman and played in eight games as the back up that season. The following year, Canfield was named the starter. He played nine games of that season before suffering an injury to his shoulder against USC that would end his season. Missing much of the preseason for the Beavers didn't help matters much and led to him only starting 2 games that year. Canfield's final season was the one he would have to really pick up the pace and make up for lost time if he wanted to help his stock out any. And that he did. The Beavers Quarterback had a very good season throwing for over 3000 Yards, and maintaining a very high completion percentage. He threw 21 Touchdown passes and just 7 Interceptions helping the Beavers to a 8-4 record and a Bowl Game birth.
It is uncertain for any rookie entering the pro level of competition on just how well their game will translate but overall, Sean Canfield has some promise even with the odds stacked against him.
Below, we will look at some highlights, stats, and at the bottom, I will project the possibilities in the upcoming draft for Canfield.
You will have to filter through the game highlights here, but this will give you a good idea of what Sean Canfield has to offer the team that drafts him.

SUMMARY AND PROJECTION:
Had the Beaver Quarterback stayed healthy, it's possible that he would've been rated a bit higher than he is on most boards. I still believe that he will be drafted relatively high and that some team will overlook the injury and concentrate more on the upside that Canfield possesses. He doesn't have a John Elway-esque cannon, but his accuracy is above par, at least at the college level. One that can be said about Canfield is that you can tell he loves to play the game and plays it with passion. He also breaks down opposing defenses very well and makes the proper adjustments as needed. He measured at 6'4" and weighed in at 223 at the NFL Combine.
Possibilities -- 4th Round: Picks 99-131, 5th Round: Picks 132-169.
