Draft Scout David Fales News
01/27/14 - Following a strong performance at the 2014 Senior Bowl All-Star Game in Mobile, Ala., San Jose State University quarterback David Fales will be one of three signal callers competing in the 16th Quicken Loans All-Star Football Challenge. Produced by Intersport, Fales is entered in the Quarterback Accuracy competition with Clemson's Taj Boyd and Logan Thomas of Virginia Tech. All three quarterbacks were at the Senior Bowl. Fales completed 6-of-7 passes with an interception for 104 yards and a touchdown for the winning South team. Boyd was 7-of-16 with an interception for 31 yards and Thomas was 4-of-5 for 17 yards for the North team that scored its only touchdown on a 1-yard fourth quarter run. - Fresno State football
01/22/14 - 2014 Senior Bowl Wednesday...While Fresno State's Derek Carr and Eastern Illinois' Jimmy Garoppolo starred the first two days in Mobile, San Jose State's David Fales enjoyed his strongest performance of the week. Carr and Garoppolo seemed to play it safe Wednesday, frequently taking check-downs and rarely risking dangerous throws. Garoppolo, for example, elected to throw an intermediate sideline route out of bounds rather than attack deep down the middle to an open receiver on a surprise flea-flicker midway through practice. Adding to his reputation as a "gamer," Fales kept his eyes downfield, rifling a few well-thrown intermediate and deep passes, including one particularly well-thrown pass to Colorado State tight end Crockett Gillmore after escaping the rush and rolling to his right. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
01/21/14 - 2014 Senior Bowl: 10 observations from Monday's South practice...8. San Jose State quarterback David Fales is more of a gamer than a practice-guy but his lack of ideal arm-strength, unfortunately, stood out in comparison to Carr and, to a lesser-extent, Garoppolo. Fales telegraphed some throws (including a short pass over the middle that was intercepted by LSU linebacker Lamin Barrow) and his passes to the perimeter had too much air under them. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
12/18/13 - 2013 ALL-MOUNTAIN WEST SECOND TEAM (COACHES/MEDIA): QB David Fales, Sr., San Jose State,...For the second season in a row, Fales was a second-team all-conference choice. He is the first San Jose State quarterback to throw for more than 4,000 yards in a season and did it in each of his two years as a Spartan. Fales completed 64.1 percent of his passes for 4,189 yards and 33 TDs and scored two more touchdowns on the ground. He shares or holds 28 San Jose State school records. - San Jose State football
12/03/13 - 2014 NFL DRAFT, WEEK 14 STOCK REPORT, NFL PROSPECTS WHO HELPED THEMSELVES: QB David Fales, San Jose State...In a game that saw over 1,000 yards of total offense (in the first half), Fales and Fresno State's Derek Carr put on a show through the air. And although Carr will be the higher sought after NFL prospect, Fales showed why there's a place for him at the next level as well, out-dueling the Fresno state quarterback and picking up the victory for the Spartans. He finished 37-for-45 (82.2%) for 547 yards, six touchdowns and no interceptions, adding 33 yards rushing and a score on the ground.
Fales showed excellent timing and anticipation and even showed off some mobility to make throws on the move, displaying supreme confidence and resolve. He throws more rainbows than ropes and is more of a finesse passer, but he was successful due to his natural instincts at the position. Fales won't be on every draft board due to his pedestrian arm strength, but his passing vision, touch and overall feel for the position is above average, making him a great fit for a west coast offense that emphasizes multiple reads. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
