Analysis by CBS Sportsline:

Positives: High percentage passer who is very poised facing the pass rush…Scans the field quickly to find his secondary receivers…Has strong legs and great balance when forced out of the pocket…Shows superb roll-and-throw skills and accuracy on his intermediate and short tosses…Delivers swing passes to his backs nicely…Patient waiting for his receivers to get open and shows the ability to run with the ball when forced out of the pocket…Fluid dropping back and poses a threat to run with his elusiveness. 

Negatives: 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 of height poses problems scanning the field with larger defenders in the way…Has good timing and a quick release, but does not show zip behind his throws.

Info 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 141-461-8.

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.

Info from CNNSI.com:

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.

Info from NFL.com:

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). 

Info from FOXSports:

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.
