Skills

"Shows good ball skills on play-action but small hands lead to problems protecting the ball when hit. He has good timing and touch on underneath throws. He also does a good job of throwing accurately in the short-to-intermediate passing game when on the run. Also, for as intelligent as he is, Fiedler takes too many risks and doesn't show enough caretaker-type qualities. He doesn't always see the whole field. He will telegraph too many of his throws and he has a tendency to throw the ball up for grabs when the pocket collapses around him. He lacks ideal size, has too many passes batted down, and he has trouble seeing the entire field as a drop-back passer from within the pocket."-ESPN website "Scouts Inc." ESPN (an acronym for the Entertainment and Sports Programming Network) is an American cable television network dedicated to broadcasting sports-related programming 24 hours a day. ...
