  Draft Scout by Conference

  Fisch is optimistic that the new QBs will catch on quicker - especially transfer Jayden de Laura, who's favored to start. De Laura appeared in 16 games for Washington State over the past two seasons, starting 15 of them. That gives him an inherent advantage. Last spring, the two scholarship quarterbacks who took most of the reps, Will Plummer and Gunner Cruz, had four combined college appearances. De Laura attempted 490 passes with the Cougars. Plummer (80) and Cruz (seven) had combined for 87. "I think the learning curve is very different," Fisch said, "just because of the fact that Jayden has a lot of inventory to pull from." One challenge that's common to all three quarterbacks is having to adjust to an offensive system that bears little resemblance to the ones they ran at previous stops.

Plummer operated a version of the spread offense. Cruz played in an Air Raid scheme, then the run-and-shoot, at Washington State. De Laura also ran the run-and-shoot at WSU. Fisch runs a pro-style system that's similar to the Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams' offense. The verbiage is more elaborate. The quarterback operates under center a good chunk of the time. The tight end plays a prominent role. All of that takes time to get used to. De Laura held the ball a beat or two too long at times during 7-on-7 Wednesday - a sign that he still has learning to do. It would have been more surprising if he had breezed through practice without a hiccup; after all, de Laura has been on campus for only a couple of months. - Arizona Star News
