DJ Uiagalelei's name isn't going to light the world on fire with other top prospects running to join him from the transfer portal. The perception is likely he is what he is at this point. That's fair. He's not going to wow you throwing on the run, as that's the area where he's the most inaccurate. He's not going to pull off some Jordan Travis stuff and leave defenders in awe when pressure comes, but he's incredibly hard for one guy to bring down. He has a longer throwing motion that causes some inaccuracies, and lacks consistency with touch on shorter passes. He has a cannon for an arm, but the lack of touch can cause passes to ricochet off receiver hands for incompletions or interceptions.
