The 2013 college football season hasn’t even begun, but there is one quarterback in college football who is already generating a lot of buzz in the scouting community. The quarterback that is catching the eyes of NFL scouts may be a name you have not yet heard of, but it is certainly one that you will want to remember. Who is the mystery quarterback? San Jose State Spartans signal-caller David Fales.
San Jose State had offensive lineman David Quessenberry and tight end Ryan Otten on the draft radar for the 2013 draft and Fales was the man who stuck out while the other players were being evaluated.
Former NFL scout Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com and the Network shed some light on the Fales buzz:
Here’s a name to put on your radar screen for the 2014 NFL Draft: San Jose St QB David Fales. He’s already generating a lot of buzz.

Fales is listed at 6-foot-3, 220-pounds, so he certainly has the size to succeed at the next level and he has the talent as well. Last season, Fales completed 72.5 percent of his passes for 4,193 yards and 33 touchdowns, which was the most accurate among quarterbacks in the FBS.
Sports Illustrated also honored Fales as an honorable mention All-American.
Fales is an excellent pocket passer and he commands the huddle and pocket. He has shown the ability to read through his progressions, while keeping his composure and his eyes downfield.
Many fans may not know who Fales is just yet, but you can be sure the NFL teams are away of just how talented he is.
