The Last Fan Posted February 26, 2008 Share Posted February 26, 2008 Chad Henne, QB, MichiganName: Chad Henne (+) Coming off shoulder injuryCollege: Michigan Number: 7Height: 6-3 Weight: 228 Position: QB Pos2: Class/Draft Year: Sr/200840 Time: 40 Low: 4.98 40 High: 5.28 Projected Round: 1-2 Stock: Rated number 3 out of 111 QB's 30 / 2545 TOTAL 02/25/08 - The coach we talked to after he was done surveying the action sounded like a man who wants no part with any of the QB Class of 2008. He shared his assessment of the action: ``Awful. This is the worst I have seen. There were a lot of bad football players on that field. ``Matt Ryan didn t throw today. On film, I like him. I think he s the best of the bunch. But we haven t seen him yet. Brian Brohm threw today. I think he was OK but his arm is just too weak and might not be enough at the pro level. But he didn t jump out at you like a top-10 pick, or anything close to that. After that, gosh, it was bad with the exception of Brennan who made 100% of his throws and was fun to watch I couldnt stop cheering every time he threw the ball. ``Chad Henne is a big, slow release guy, he stands in the pocket too long. He s got a big, wide base, kind of a squatter, not fundamentally very strong. There just aren t many fundamental quarterbacks. ``The kid from Nebraska [sam Keller] was just awful. ``Joe Flacco, fundamentally he s pretty average. But I watched him take about a million sacks on tape. He s a big, tall, long release guy. My whole deal with him is if he took a million sacks in college, what s going to happen in the NFL? Kind of reminds me of that big kid from Michigan that Arizona had, John Navarre. Same thing. He took too many sacks. He couldn t move around. Just like that kid from Arizona State that wound up in Oakland, Andrew Walter. He s going to be out of the league in another year. Do you want him? ``Andre Woodson? He didn t do anything either. I guess I ll have to go watch him work out at some point. This coach won t be holding his breath on the way to that workout either. QB Chad Henne is noted for his accuracy, but struggled a bit during the morning session Sunday. He missed a few receivers in various drills, although he did finish on a strong note with two excellent passes on the deep up and out pattern to finish the session.he has the strongest arm in the pack and he often thren laser cannons over his recievers head. He lacks touch and he seems to throw with evey thing he got on every given pass.What has made Henne so popular is his passion for the game and will to win and be succeful. I like him he reminds me of a Big Ben but not quite as mobile. Look for him to be taken in the late 1st round and mid 2nd round Ready to start: C+Potential: B+Status: Work on Progress, possible stealSuccess in the NFL: It will depend on the team who drafts him. With the right coaching he can become successful in the years to come. He needs a good QB couch to help him on his throw and delivey. This kid is running with a gun and shots with his eyes closed. he can play in the system at the pro level and can have lots of success Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
