On3 DB / Kenny Minchey

As a College Recruit

Polished, consistent passer with feel for the game. Has a compact build at 6-foot-1, 201 pounds with a 10-inch hand. Tests as a good athlete for the position, running a 4.78 second 40-yard dash, a 4.32 second shuttle and jumping 37 inches in the vertical prior to his senior season. Completed 61.3 percent of his passes for 3,280 yards and 32 touchdowns against 9 picks as a junior. A steady, consistent passer on both Friday nights and in the camp setting. Able to replicate throws from different platforms and in the face of pressure. Negotiates space in the pocket well and shows a good feel for the pass rush. Arm strength looks to be better in the camp setting than at times on Friday nights. Can continue making more plays with his legs. Longer back stroke within his throwing motion that can show up in game settings. Will not wow you with his physical tools relative to other blue-chip quarterbacks, but presents a well-rounded skill set, particularly as a passer.

Kenny Michey's compact build and ability to make improvisational plays from within the pocket remind us of Brock Purdy. Minchey is taller than Purdy, while Purdy was more productive and more of a run threat at the high school level.

Kenny Minchey turns in rock solid week at Elite 11 Finals

Charles Power

Kenny Minchey had a good three days at the Elite 11 Finals. He was a Top Performer on Day 2 with one of the better pro day workouts and showed good zip on his throws throughout the week. Minchey has a compact, powerful build and was able to drive the ball out to the boundary and middle of the field with little strain. He was solid, but not spectacular in 7-on-7 on Thursday, with On3 charting him on target for 10 of 18 passes with one touchdown, one interception and a sack. The four-star signal caller showed one of the more well-rounded passing skill sets on hand and had a solid week, in our opinion.
