back and poses a threat to run with his elusiveness.
Struggles to maintain that accuracy throwing long, as the ball seems to
hang…Lacks the arm strength to get the ball upfield in an instant…His lack

from Pro Football Weekly:
Notes: Went on a religious
mission after high school. Saw limited action his first season at BYU,
completing one pass and having another picked off. Worked at quarterback
and receiver in 1999, when he was 0-for-2 passing with a pick but also
ran five times for 32 yards and caught nine passes for 83 yards. Began
2000 way down on the depth chart but wound up starting and winning the
last two games. Completed 57-92-782-2-4 on the year and ran for 129 yards
and three touchdowns. Started in '01 and was the Mountain West Player of
the Year despite playing most of the season with a third-degree separation
of his right throwing shoulder. Completed 261-408-3,542-33-8 and rushed
Positives: Excellent competitor.
Super intangibles. Very tough. Tremendous guts and courage. Good athlete.
Plays quicker and faster than his time. Has quick feet and good vision.
Can and will run and does not like to slide. Accurate short- to medium-range
passer with good timing and touch. Has good presence and awareness. Can
think on his feet. Well trained. Maximizes what arm strength he does have.
Negatives: Looks small and
almost frail. Despite courage and toughness, durability may be a problem.
Very average-to-marginal arm strength. Cannot get much on the ball unless
he can step and throw. Will float too many passes. Struggles to throw deep
and had the benefit of playing most of his games at a rarified atmosphere.
Lack of arm strength shows up at sea level.
Summary: Made huge strides
in '01, but lack of size and lack of arm strength will hurt him in the
draft. Will play a lot better than he will look in a scouting combine-type
setup. Could be a Jeff Garcia-type pro with a little less arm strength
if he goes to the right team, is brought along slowly and avoids injury.
First-year starter and All-Conference
choice last year after passing for 64.0%/3,542/33/8. Threw only 92 passes
for 782 yards as a junior when he started the final two games.
Quick thinking signal caller very
much in the mold of recent BYU quarterbacks. Sets up in the pocket with
solid fundamentals, throws with an over the top delivery and elusive. Gets
outside the pocket to make plays on the move and avoids the rush. Puts
air under his deep throws and places his corner routes nicely. Goes through
his receiver progressions when given time in the pocket and shows an adequate
intermediate passing arm. Lacks stature, size and easily brought down as
the pocket collapses. Does not possess the big arm, loses a lot throwing
on the move and cannot drive the ball down the field. Not patient as the
pocket collapses around him, rarely buys time for his wideouts nor does
he react well to pressure. Not accurate down the field and the longer the
throw, the more scattered his passes are. Tends to step out of his throws
or releases the pass off his back foot, which hurts both the velocity and
accuracy of his tosses. Size/speed numbers will prevent him from being
drafted but if he builds upon his senior campaign a potential third-string
quarterback at the next level. Free Agent.
Had a solid combine workout. Had
a 32½-inch vertical jump, an 8-foot, 10-inch long jump and ran two
40s (4.90 and 4.83). Played quarterback and free safety in high school
— his team won the state championship one season. Also played basketball
and high-jumped in track. Played five games in 1998 as a true freshman,
then played running back and wide receiver in 1999 until starting the last
two games at QB, winning both. Had a great year in 2001 (33 touchdowns
passing, eight touchdowns rushing) while playing injured (right shoulder).
Is an older player because he went on a mission before entering BYU in
1998 (born Dec. 29, 1976). A good athlete and tremendous competitor. Moves
well, has quick feet and is part of a great system for quarterbacks. Reminds
me of San Francisco's Jeff Garcia when Garcia played for San Jose State,
but has slightly better arm strength. Does not look as tall as he is. Is
a smart player recruited by many big-time programs out of high school (UCLA,
Michigan and Miami, among others).
Doman is getting a lot of attention
paid to him because of the outstanding season he had for the Cougars. He
played in a pass-oriented offense and it needs to be determined if what
he did was based on his ability or the offense. Doman is a very smart player.
He makes all the reads that he needs, not locking in on a single target.
He has good accuracy, though it is not so good on deeper passes. He uses
good footwork on his drops and possesses a smooth and quick release. Doman
is quite mobile and a threat once he gets out of the pocket. On the downside,
he is not very big (6-0, 195). What he has to do in post season tryouts
is prove he has the arm strength and ability to play in the NFL.
