Houser stands 6-3 and weighs around 200 pounds. He throws a beautiful ball and is known for having outstanding touch on his throws. He is an extremely accurate passer both in the pocket and on the run. He has above-average mobility and does demonstrate the ability to implement RPO plays into drives downfield much like Brian Lewerke did. He makes sound decisions and hits his receivers in stride which leads to huge YAC chunks for his pass catchers.

What does it mean to “fit the Tucker mold”, you ask? You have to have size, athleticism, and, if you’re playing a skill position, speed.
