He set a Big-Ten record, starting 50 consecutive games for the Gophers from 2007-2010 after being Red-shirted in 2006. 

Weber finished with 10,917 yards passing and 72 touchdowns. He has passed for more than 200 yards in 30 of 50 career starts (55.7%), with at least one touchdown pass in 37 of 50 games

Adam completed 205-of-368 pass attempts for 2,515 yards in his senior year, with 20 touchdowns.

Wes Bunting of NFP had him as the 5th ranked quarterback in the Undrafted Free Agent Pool.

CBSSports Chad Reuter had this to say about Weber:

Strengths: Tough, hard-working player who is respected throughout the Big Ten. Quick, over-the-top delivery. Unloads accurate deep balls with tight trajectory and spiral. Ball flight and anticipation allow him to make up for average arm. Works from under center and shotgun. Solid footwork, well-balanced and poised in the pocket. Will look off safeties on occasion to free up other routes. Eludes defenders in the pocket and keeps his head up to make plays downfield. Good anticipation and timing on out-routes. Has some mobility out of the pocket and can ran just fast enough to make first downs if pass rush leaves him room up the middle.


Weaknesses: Below average height for an NFL quarterback. Only an adequate arm, some balls to the sideline take time to reach their target. Misreads defenses and tries to fit balls into tight spaces which, combined with a lack of elite arm strength, results in interceptions. Not an elusive runner in space, needs to secure the ball more effectively and learn to slide. Pats the ball before he throws.


It should also be noted that other sites have him listed at 6'1", 211 lbs.
