2005 (Sophomore): The promising Booty, believed to be the first prep football player to graduate a full year early from high school and enroll at a major Division I-A university, will compete for the No. 2 quarterback job as a sophomore in 2005.
The Good: He is a good athlete with an adequate arm and the fine intangibles the position demands. He has a quick, compact delivery and his accuracy allows him to find open receivers and hit them in stride. He has good footwork in his setup and will stand in the pocket and wait for the play to develop despite heavy pressure. He has operated mainly under center, which is a bonus.
The Bad: He lacks the strong arm that NFL scouts seek in a prospect, though he has enough arm strength to compete for NFL starting time. He loses accuracy in the deeper game. He can struggle to drive the ball down the field and make the tough throw. As a runner, he is barely adequate.
