Nicholas Vattiato QB vs. Brady Cook QB

Nicholas Vattiato of the Blue Raiders, with a 65.6% completion rate, exhibits a fair amount of accuracy in his passing. Although his 4 yards per pass attempt might not seem daunting, it suggests a strategy more inclined towards short, safe passes. On the downside, Vattiato’s 3 sacks totaling a loss of 25 yards indicate vulnerabilities in either his pocket presence or the offensive line’s protection.


On the other hand, Missouri Tigers’ Brady Cook is off to a blazing start this season. With a completion percentage of 81% and an average of 8.2 yards per pass attempt, Cook is proving to be both accurate and adventurous. His high passer rating of 165.5, paired with zero interceptions, showcases his efficiency and decision-making skills.
