Keith Price is a good player. He gets a lot of attention around these parts for being a solid player. The problem is, he hasn’t really been the dominant quarterback he can be. He’s shown flashes, but never just had the stretch of games that shows you he can dominate teams. That makes him dangerous because, as a senior heading into the final stretch of his college career, this is the time when turning it on is key. He is slated as a 7th round talent in the upcoming NFL Draft, his team sits at 4-3 with an outside shot to make a run at the Pac-12 Championship game and he only has five definite games left in his career. Now would be the perfect time to change people’s opinions on him and his team.

He can beat you with his arm. He can make any throw. He is an occasional runner, but he doesn’t run unless it’s the only real option. He will challenge defensive backs without hesitation or fear. Expect him to light up the Cal secondary if he’s on and ready to play.
