When it comes to Arm Strength Goff is about average for an NFL QB. He is a bit different from the mold though. He has very good velocity on his throws and can fit passes into some tight windows, but he lacks the raw arm strength to throw the ball deep downfield consistently. Sometimes his throws just die in the air and don’t travel as far as he’s trying to throw them.
These next three gifs are examples of his top throwing speed. He’s not going to break the radar gun with his velocity, but it’s respectable at the very least.

In these next two examples you can see Goff attempting some deeper throws. On this first one he tries to throw a bullet to the sidelines. Standing about 5 yards deep in the endzone he throws a bullet pass that seemingly dies after about 20 yards.

In this next example, he doesn’t get enough behind this throw and throws it way up in the air. The ball doesn’t have nearly enough distance on it which causes his receiver to have to turn and slow down not hitting him in stride. He did not step into this throw and that is why he underthrew this pass, but this was a bit of a rarity as the next two plays will show.

On this throw Goff throws a beautiful deep ball to his receiver. Good velocity on the throw, about 50 yards in the air, and it’s placed well enough for his receiver to make the catch. The big problem on this throw is that didn’t get enough behind this throw to lead his receiver.

For this final throw, Goff get’s more than enough behind this ball to lead his receiver extremely well on a 60 yard pass.

Goff has the ability to throw some great deep passes, and can throw the ball well over 50 yards, but his main issue on deep passes is just getting the ball far enough to lead his receivers. On some plays he is able to complete passes of 60 yards, but on others he seems to struggle completing passes deeper than 40 yards. He has the arm strength to blow the top off the defense, but he seems to want to aim the ball too much and sometimes underthrows his target.
