All I was able to find was the QB weigh in ,

I didnt think Henne was that big,

How is his Pocket Awareness?

Read One report Flacco was impressing everyone.

I can find anything on the combine results,

so post a Link,

or if you are watching on NFL Network,

I heard henne lost his wallet at the weigh in so pocket awareness is questionable.;)

At the College Football Challenge Flacco seemed more poised and relaxed. Henne was uptight through the whole challenge. Flacco also threw very well and he won the longest pass competition. Flacco threw for an amazing 72 yards and 76 yards respectively. Henne choked and threw for 65 yards. Flacco could've thrown farther, but he slipped a lil. He seems to be very comfortable, smart, and athletic, since he also won the foot drill too.

We should pay considerable attention to Flacco. I saw the Delaware vs Del St. game, he was very consistent and fairly mobile. If we can pick him up in the 2nd round and acquire some linemen via FA or draft, along with a solid RB he'd be a great prospect. It would at least kill the Matt Schaub complaints.

Flacco said "4.6 or Bust" if he runs a, 4.6 he would remind me a lot of the Matt Jones

Article on Flacco,

Big-armed QB Flacco creating buzz

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2008/writ...2/combine.2.22/

"Henne, for one, doesn't buy any argument that this year's quarterback class is weak.

"I think this year's class is one of the best quarterback classes we've had in a long time," he said. "We all have experience at the college level. I think there are some stars out there.""

Plenty of uncertainty surrounds this year's QB class

i think one reason flacco is impressing everyone is because noone knows the kid, he play at deleware lol how many games did anyone catch of his? why didnt he go 1A? and by the way 76 yard throws are irrelavent when it comes to running an nfl offense. chad henne is more NFL ready in my opinion

He did start out with the Pitt Panthers but Tyler Palko won the starters job and Flacco transferred to Deleware.

The NFL readiness of Flaco seems to be the reason he's not there projected in the first round. Apparently he's got some footwork problems, but his arm seems to be pretty strong.

From the SI article...

But NFL people are talking about Flacco. At 6-foot-6, 236 pounds, he's a big-bodied quarterback with a big arm. The kind of arm that has scouts drooling. He had trouble taking snaps at the Senior Bowl after playing mostly from the shotgun formation at Delaware, and teams here want to see how much mobility he has for a big man (he said he's "4.6 or bust'' in Sunday's 40-yard dash). But nobody's questioning his ability to deliver the football.

"Flacco's exploded this year,'' NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock said Friday. "I went to watch him practice in Delaware [last season] and I went, 'Wow.' He's got a huge arm, the best arm in the draft. His feet need a lot of work, but he can make every throw. I think he's two or three years away, but some people think he can be the best quarterback of the entire class. He's got that kind of ability.''
