Clayton Tune 2023 NFL Draft Scouting Report


  • Threw for 3,500 yards and 30 touchdowns (2021)


  • Scheme tendencies: Spread system 
  • 2022 projected role: Starting QB 

Pros: Clayton Tune is a veteran quarterback that always seems to be cool, calm, and collected in the pocket. Tune shows to have good pocket presence in his ability to step up in the pocket and evade defenders that are coming. Tune has athleticism and the ability to escape the pocket to keep the play alive. Outside of the pocket, Tune can keep his eyes down the field and find an open target. On the run, Tune has above-average accuracy and has shown that he can get the ball to all areas of the field. On the surface Tune is not your prototypical mobile quarterback, but I believe in a system with bootlegs and rollouts, he can show well and be in a position to have some productivity.

Cons: The downside to Clayton Tune’s game comes from his arm strength. Tune shows to be an effective passer on short-to-intermediate throws but deep passes seem to give him trouble. Tune can locate the open man on deep routes but it appears that he doesn’t have the arm strength to hit them in stride 45-plus yards down the field. In this Houston offense, they are asked to work all three levels of the field effectively. In Tune’s case, working the third level is not as consistent because of this arm strength issue. Tune is a productive quarterback and he always seems to be in control, but his arm strength can present issues and would make him a quarterback that would do well only in specific systems.
