ESPN Fantasy Projection: O'Connell was selected in the fourth round of April's draft. He's a 6-foot-3 pocket QB with decent accuracy, an average arm and little to no rushing ability. O'Connell is a conservative passer (career 7.7 aDOT) who averaged a rookie-class-low 11.2 yards per completion at Purdue. He also scrambled on a class-low 1.8% of his dropbacks, which is a red flag for his fantasy upside. Perhaps most concerning, O'Connell's production and efficiency plummeted in 2022 after a breakout 2021. He'll battle veteran Brian Hoyer for backup duties behind Jimmy Garoppolo.
