Scouting Report

40 time: 4.74

7th round/priority free agent

Snapshot: Despite being beat up by injuries early in his career, Garbers put together an admirable resume as a Golden Bear. He took over the starting job in 2018 and held onto it through 2021, with the exception of being sidelined in 2019 due to a broken collarbone. While his production is fairly marginal for a college passer, he's a multiple time captain with the intelligence and baseline tools to find work as a backup in the NFL.

Strengths: Good anticipatory thrower who can sync up the deep ball and lead his receivers properly. Adequate scrambler who can pick up a first down with his legs. Savvy decision-maker who protects the ball and won't take unnecessary risks. Calm under the gun. Eyes stay scanning downfield when he is forced off platform. Sense of pressure and ability to adjust to it are refined. Natural touch thrower who can change up his tempo where needed.

Weaknesses: Physical tools are average by NFL standards. Arm is underwhelming and will lead to some passes dying out across the field. Inconsistent with his placement and timing when working over the middle of the field. Processing speed will need to take a step forward. Tends to stare down his receivers and give away his process to defenders.

Pro comparison: Brett Rypien, Broncos -- Garbers is a bit more athletic than Rypien but has the same limitations of physical tools will spell danger for his immediate transition to the NFL. If he continues his growth with processing information, he should be able to overcome those limitations enough to stick.
