  2. SanDiegoState_logo.gifKevin O'Connell, San Diego State

    Height: 6-5. Weight: 225.

    Projected 40 Time: 4.59.

    Combine 40 Time: 4.61.

    Hand Size: 8 7/8.

    Projected Round: 4-5.

    A quarterback with great size and mobility, Kevin O'Connell led his team in rushing yards (408) and rushing touchdowns (11). He also threw for 3,063 yards and 15 scores. His 40 time really looks enticing.

  3. Tennessee_logo.gifErik Ainge, Tennessee

    Height: 6-5. Weight: 225.

    Projected 40 Time: 4.82.

    Combine 40 Time: 4.98.

    Hand Size: 9 1/8.

    Projected Round: 4-5.

    No one was sure how well Erik Ainge would play in the wake of breaking his pinky prior to the California game. The Vols couldn't win, but Ainge was 32-of-47 for 271 yards and three touchdowns. No one will ever question his toughness again.

  4. CentralOklahoma_logo.gifRyan O'Hara, Central Oklahoma

    Height: 6-5. Weight: 235.

    Projected 40 Time: 4.69.

    Projected Round: 5-6.

    Ryan O'Hara is one of the true sleepers in this draft. He has the prototypical size of an NFL quarterback and great mobility to complement his build. Unlike Colt Brennan, he can make all of the throws. Level of competition is obviously an issue, but keep in mind that Arizona recruited him, so obviously someone saw him as a Division I-caliber talent. Check out this YouTube clip for some film on


  5. Hawaii_logo.gifColt Brennan, Hawaii

    Height: 6-2. Weight: 207.

    Projected 40 Time: 4.84.

    Combine 40 Time: .

    Hand Size: 9 3/4.

    Projected Round: 5-6.

    Well, Colt Brennan's stock couldn't get any lower. That's why it went up. Actually, it was the fact that he gained 20 pounds and threw the ball OK.

    Prior to the Senior Bowl, I had Colt Brennan as a fourth- or fifth-round prospect. Now, I'm thinking that was too high. Brennan really sucks. He has no arm strength. His side-arm release is troublesome. His attitude sucks (take off that rainbow visor and stop drawing attention to yourself). He has character issues. I'm not even sure if he gets drafted at this point.

    If you want an NFL comparison, I'd say Chad Pennington.

    Needs to prove he's not a system quarterback. Struggled to throw in the wind vs. Oregon State. Compiled a mind-boggling 58 TDs in 2006. A bit small for an NFL quarterback. Will be 25 years old before the 2008 season even starts.

  6. Oregon_logo.gifDennis Dixon, Oregon

    Height: 6-3. Weight: 195.

    Projected 40 Time: 4.76.

    Combine 40 Time: Did not run.

    Hand Size: 9 3/4.

    Projected Round: 5-6.

    Dennis Dixon wasn't ready to work out at the combine.

    Forget the guy who had more picks than scores last year. Dennis Dixon was brilliant at Michigan, going 16-of-25 for 292 yards and three touchdowns. Dixon also gained 76 yards on the ground. Dixon may have worked himself into the second day.

    An elusive quarterback who can scramble for first downs. Threw more interceptions (14) than touchdowns (12) in 2006.

  7. LSU_logo.gifMatt Flynn, LSU

    Height: 6-2. Weight: 229.

    Projected 40 Time: 4.62.

    Combine 40 Time: 4.71.

    Hand Size: 9 1/4.

    Projected Round: 6-7.

    Inconsistent is Matt Flynn's middle name. Sure, he won the national title in 2007, but there were some games where he dazzled everyone with his ineptness. Other weeks, he was brilliant.

  8. PennState_logo.gifAnthony Morelli, Penn State

    Height: 6-3. Weight: 231.

    Projected 40 Time: 4.73.

    Combine 40 Time: 5.05.

    Pro Day 40 Time: 5.08.

    Hand Size: 9 7/8.

    Projected Round: 6-7.

    Forget everything that happened at the combine. I'm shocked Anthony Morelli actually found his way to the combine.

    Has nice size and a great arm. Looked good against Tennessee in the Outback Bowl. When criticized for his inability to read defenses, lashed out at reporters. Has some off-the-field issues I've seen personally that would keep me from drafting him.

  9. NewHampshire_logo.gifRicky Santos, New Hampshire

    Height: 6-2. Weight: 215.

    40 Time: 4.80.

    Projected Round: 6-7.

    Has thrown at least 3,100 yards and 29 TDs in all three of his seasons at New Hampshire. The level of competition he has played against is very questionable.

  10. Marshall_logo.gifBernard Morris, Marshall (9/9)

    Height: 6-4. Weight: 211.

    Projected 40 Time: 4.68.

    Combine 40 Time: 4.68.

    Hand Size: 9.

    Projected Round: 6-7.

    Bernard Morris opened some eyes when he went toe-to-toe with West Virginia, going 19-of-29 for 256 yards and two touchdowns. I'm not sure if Morris will play quarterback at the next level, but he has the athleticism to engage in some sort of Brad Smith role.

  11. Kutztown_logo.gifKyle Spotts, Kutztown

    Height: 6-3. Weight: 205.

    40 Time: 4.79.

    Projected Round: 7.

    Kyle Spotts has decent arm strength and mobility. Level of competition is a question, but Spotts is worth a late-round pick.

  12. Tulsa_logo.gifPaul Smith, Tulsa

    Height: 6-1. Weight: 208.

    Projected 40 Time: 4.85.

    Combine 40 Time: 4.94.

    Hand Size: 9 3/4.

    Projected Round: 7.

    A bit small, but Paul Smith gets it done on the football field. A week after shredding BYU's secondary for 454 yards and five touchdowns, Smith was 22-of-32, 350 yards, two scores and two picks against Oklahoma.

  13. Nebraska_logo.gifSam Keller, Nebraska

    Height: 6-3. Weight: 241.

    Projected 40 Time: 4.95.

    Combine 40 Time: 4.97.

    Hand Size: 9 3/4.

    Projected Round: 7.

    Sam Kellar carelessly stood in the pocket too long and fumbled the ball deep in his own territory, up three, late in the fourth quarter against Wake Forest.

    Major character issues, which you just can't have from a quarterback. Threw 20 TDs and only nine INTs at Arizona State in 2005.

  14. SanJoseState_logo.gifAdam Tafralis, San Jose State

    Height: 6-1. Weight: 223.

    Projected 40 Time: 4.81.

    Combine 40 Time: 4.78.

    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.68.

    Hand Size: .

    Projected Round: 7.

  15. Miami_logo.gifKyle Wright, Miami

    Height: 6-3. Weight: 218.

    Projected 40 Time: 4.84.

    Combine 40 Time: 4.85.

    Combine 40 Time: 4.84.

    Hand Size: .

    Projected Round: 7.

    Despite his inability to play well at Miami, Kyle Wright actually impressed scouts and GMs at the combine and Miami's Pro Day.

    Benched in favor of the mediocre Kirby Freeman.

    In 2005, threw 18 TDs and 10 INTs. In 2006, had 8 TDs, 7 INTs and a thumb injury after he accumulated those stats.

  16. IllinoisState_logo.gifLuke Drone, Illinois State

    Height: 6-2. Weight: 210.

    Projected 40 Time: 4.87.

    Pro Day 40 Time: 4.90.

    Projected Round: 7-FA.

    One of the top 1-AA quarterbacks out there, Drone has generated at least 2,900 yards and 21 TDs the past two years. How will he fare without his top two receivers in 2007?

  17. Stanford_logo.gifT.C. Ostrander, Stanford (7/30)

    Height: 6-2. Weight: 227.

    Projected 40 Time: 4.84.

    Combine 40 Time: Did not run.

    Hand Size: 8 5/8.

    Projected Round: 7-FA.

    Doesn't have much experience; his single-season career highs are 918 yards and four touchdowns. He completed just 45.6 percent of his passes last year, but he had absolutely nothing to work with; Stanford's football program is currently a disgrace.

  18. Hillsdale_logo.gifMark Nicolet, Hillsdale

    Height: 6-2. Weight: 220.

    40 Time: 4.75.

    Projected Round: 7-FA.

    I'm not sure if Mark Nicolet puts enough zip on the ball to survive in the NFL, but he can scramble well. He also put up nice numbers, throwing for 3,335 yards and 31 touchdowns as a senior.

  19. BoiseState_logo.gifTaylor Tharp, Boise State

    Height: 6-2. Weight: 204.

    40 Time: 4.84.

    Projected Round: FA.

    Taylor Tharp put up decent numbers in his senior season (3,340 yards, 30 touchdowns, only 11 picks). Against his only tough opponent, however, Tharp tossed three picks in a 24-10 loss at Washington.

  20. SouthCarolina_logo.gifBlake Mitchell, South Carolina

    Height: 6-3. Weight: 211.

    40 Time: 4.72.

    Projected Round: FA.

    Blake Mitchell was benched after a poor performance against LSU.

    The good: Mitchell threw for more than 260 yards in his last four games of the season, including four touchdowns against both Middle Tennessee State and Houston. And what about the tough opponents? Mitchell was 24-of-33 for 275 yards at Florida in a 17-16 loss. The bad: Mitchell was suspended for a fight with a bouncer last year. In this past spring game, he was 13-of-39 for 150 yards and two picks.

  21. WashingtonState_logo.gifAlex Brink, Washington State

    Height: 6-2. Weight: 211.

    Projected 40 Time: 4.67.

    Combine 40 Time: 5.03.

    Hand Size: 8 1/2.

    Projected Round: FA.

    Alex Brink, along with John David Booty, has the smallest hands in this class.

  22. SouthernIllinois_logo.gifNick Hill, Southern Illinois

    Height: 6-3. Weight: 210.

    40 Time: 4.75.

    Projected Round: FA.

    A pretty efficient quarterback, Nick Hill completed 71.5 percent of his passes and tossed just seven picks. Despite those figures, he still managed 3,175 yards and 28 touchdowns.

  23. SouthernMiss_logo.gifJeremy Young, Southern Miss

    Height: 6-3. Weight: 215.

    40 Time: 4.58.

    Projected Round: FA.

    Jeremy Young played well at Tennessee, finishing 19-of-36 for 254 yards, one touchdown and one interception. He also rushed for 48 yards on nine carries. Like Brad Smith, Young will probably be asked to play another position in the NFL.

  24. IowaState_logo.gifBret Meyer, Iowa State

    Height: 6-3. Weight: 204.

    40 Time: 4.68.

    Projected Round: FA.

    Threw just as many touchdowns (12) as interceptions in 2006, a far cry from what he accomplished in 2005: 2,876 yards, 19 TDs, 10 INTs.

  25. Auburn_logo.gifBrandon Cox, Auburn (9/27)

    Height: 6-2. Weight: 202.

    40 Time: 4.72.

    Projected Round: FA.

    Brandon Cox's 2007 season is worse than his 2006 campaign; it seems like all he can do is throw interceptions.

    Too inconsistent for my liking. In Week 2, 18-of-27 for 249 yards and two TDs. Against Georgia, 4-of-12 for 35 yards, one TD and four INTs.

  26. TroyState_logo.gifOmar Haugabook, Troy State

    Height: 5-11. Weight: 205.

    40 Time: 4.54.

    Projected Round: FA.

  27. FloridaState_logo.gifXavier Lee, Florida State

    Height: 6-4. Weight: 235.

    40 Time: 4.57.

    Projected Round: FA.

    Xavier Lee for some reason has declared for the 2008 NFL Draft.

    Lee has a fast 40... and... ummm... that's about it. He might get drafted as a receiver???


Quarterbacks:  2009 Prospects

Florida_logo.gifTim Tebow*, Florida

Height: 6-3. Weight: 235.

Projected 40 Time: 4.54.

Projected Round (2009): Top 5 Pick.

ESPN's Jesse Palmer said that Tim Tebow moved himself into Heisman consideration in the wake of his performance at Ole Miss. I have to agree. Tebow's passing numbers were great - 20-of-34, 262 yards, two touchdowns - but his rushing numbers were downright spectacular (26 carries, 164 yards, two more scores).

Tebow passed his first true test with flying colors. The sophomore was 14-of-19 for 299 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against Tennessee. He also rushed for 61 yards and two more scores on the ground.

Oklahoma_logo.gifSam Bradford**, Oklahoma

Height: 6-4. Weight: 214.

Projected 40 Time: 4.68.

Projected Round (2009): Top 10 Pick.

3/26/08: Sam Bradford is going into his redshirt sophomore year, so he'll be eligible for the 2009 Draft. If he matches his 2007 numbers this upcoming year, I see no reason why he woudn't come out early. Bradford threw for 3,121 yards, 36 touchdowns and only eight picks - as a freshman. Unbelievable. Can we get a birth certificate?

Purdue_logo.gifCurtis Painter, Purdue

Height: 6-4. Weight: 223.

Projected 40 Time: 4.81.

Projected Round (2009): 1-2.

3/26/08: Curtis Painter threw for less yardage (3.846) than he did as a sophomore, but he compiled more touchdowns (29 to 22), less interceptions (11 to 19) and a higher completion percentage (62.6 to 59.4).

Painter threw for more yards (3,985) last year than any player in Purdue history, which includes Drew Brees and Kyle Orton. That said, after starting hot in 2006, Painter was largely ineffective against Wisconsin (20-40, 187 yds, 1 INT), Penn State (22-39, 184 yds, 2 INTs), Illinois (20-42, 229 yds, 1 TD, 1 INT) and Indiana (4 INTs).

Georgia_logo.gifMatt Stafford*, Georgia

Height: 6-3. Weight: 237.

Projected 40 Time: 4.74.

Projected Round (2009): 1-2.

3/26/08: Matt Stafford improved upon his freshman campaign, throwing for 2,523 yards and 19 touchdowns. He did, however, complete just 55.7 percent of his passes.

I'm not as high on Matt Stafford as other people are. Call me crazy, but I'm not sold on a guy who compiled way more picks (13) than touchdowns (7), even if he was a freshman. Stafford threw three interceptions against both Mississippi State and Kentucky - not the greatest opponents in the world.

Stafford looked good against Auburn (14-20, 219 yds, 7 carries, 83 rush yds, 2 total TDs) and Georgia Tech (16-29, 171 yds, 1 TD), but things fell apart for him in the Chick Fil-A Bowl against Virginia Tech, where he went 9-of-21 for 129 yards, one touchdown and an interception. Stafford doesn't have the greatest weapons to work with, so I admit that I'm being a little harsh in my criticism.

Louisville_logo.gifHunter Cantwell, Louisville

Height: 6-5. Weight: 230.

Projected 40 Time: 4.72.

Projected Round (2009): 1-2.

This is sort of like the Carson Palmer-Matt Leinart situation at USC. Hunter Cantwell stepped in for an injured Brian Brohm in 2006 and threw for 700 yards, five touchdowns and two picks, maintaining a completion percentage of 64.3. One of the top prospects in the nation who will have to wait until the 2008 season to play.

Clemson_logo.gifCullen Harper, Clemson

Height: 6-4. Weight: 215.

Projected 40 Time: 4.75.

Projected Round (2009): 2.

In his first season of extensive action, Cullen Harper threw for 2,887 yards, 27 touchdowns and only six interceptions. He qualified for the 2007 All-ACC Second Team.

OhioState_logo.gifTodd Boeckman, Ohio State

Height: 6-5. Weight: 243.

Projected 40 Time: 4.76.

Projected Round (2009): 2-3.

3/26/08: Todd Boeckman improved throughout the 2007 campaign but looked very mediocre against LSU in the national championship, going 15-of-26 for 208 yards, two touchdowns and two picks.

A massive quarterback with a great arm, Todd Boeckman really proved himself by throwing for 257 yards and three scores at Penn State.

Missouri_logo.gifChase Daniel, Missouri

Height: 6-0. Weight: 223.

Projected 40 Time: 4.58.

Projected Round (2009): 3.

Chase Daniel's 6-foot frame really hurts him. Plenty of small quarterbacks have succeeded in the NFL, so that doesn't mean Daniel will be a bad signal caller; it just means he won't get drafted as high as he should.

One attribute that will help Daniel is his scrambling ability; he's quick and has shown that he's capable of picking up yards on the ground. In terms of passing, Daniel completed more than 50 percent in every single game. He ended his 2006 campaign with three interception-less games. He threw for 240 or more yards 11 times, finishing with 3,527 yards, 28 touchdowns and just 10 picks.

Texas_logo.gifColt McCoy*, Texas

Height: 6-3. Weight: 205.

Projected 40 Time: 4.69.

Projected Round (2009): 3.

Colt McCoy threw interceptions like a madman in a 20-point loss to Kansas State. Through five games, he has way more picks than he had as a freshman.

McCoy's freshman campaign reminds me a bit of Philip Rivers' 2006 season. The Longhorns, much like Marty Schottenheimer, didn't let their young quarterback loose until midway through the season.

When McCoy was allowed to fire at will, he tore it up. He threw for six touchdowns against Baylor. He compiled 346 yards and three scores against Oklahoma State. He accumulated 256 yards and four touchdowns at Texas Tech. He was 26-of-40 for 308 yards and two scores in the Alamo Bowl against Iowa. There's no reason to think McCoy will regress; he has great weapons at his disposal and plays in a weak conference.

USC_logo.gifMark Sanchez*, USC

Height: 6-3. Weight: 225.

Projected 40 Time: 4.71.

Projected Round (2009): 3-4.

Will likely take over for John David Booty in 2008. Only threw seven passes as a freshman, so there isn't much film to digest.

TexasTech_logo.gifGraham Harrell, Texas Tech

Height: 6-2. Weight: 196.

Projected 40 Time: 4.73.

Projected Round (2009): 3-4.

Another Texas Tech quarterback? Sort of - Graham Harrell is much better than any of his predecessors. Still, it's a bit scary to take a signal caller from a school that has produced nothing but NFL duds (see Florida Gators as another example). Harrell, like Chase Holbrook and Colton Brennan, produces disgusting numbers because of his offense. He threw for 5,705 yards, 48 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in 2007.

Something scouts won't be able to measure is Harrell's ability to perform in the clutch. Down 31 points with less than eight minutes remaining in the third quarter against Minnesota, Harrell engineered the greatest comeback in bowl history, beating the pathetic Golden Gophers, 44-41.

ArizonaState_logo.gifRudy Carpenter, Arizona State

Height: 6-2. Weight: 199.

Projected 40 Time: 4.80.

Projected Round (2009): 4.

3/26/08: Rudy Carpenter puts up some nice stats - for the most part. He threw for 3,202 yards, 25 touchdowns and only 10 picks in 2007. So, what's the problem? Carpenter was sacked 54 times. The Sun Devils currently have the top center prospect in the 2008 Draft, so it's not like he had no protection.

NewMexicoState_logo.gifChase Holbrook, New Mexico State

Height: 6-5. Weight: 235.

Projected 40 Time: 4.75.

Projected Round (2009): 4.

Thanks to the ESPN Hype Machine, everyone talks about Colton Brennan, and not Chase Holbrook. Yet, both are very similar collegiate quarterbacks - they put up sick numbers in gimmicky offenses. At 6-5, 235, Holbrook is a better pro prospect than Brennan (6-3, 196), in my opinion.

Holbrook threw for 4,619 yards, 34 touchdowns and just nine interceptions as a sophomore last year. In his final game against Louisiana Tech, he was 41-of-54 for 514 yards and three touchdowns. An even more amazing statistic is that Holbrook finished the 2006 campaign with 179 consecutive passes without a pick.

TexasAM_logo.gifStephen McGee, Texas A&M

Height: 6-3. Weight: 208.

Projected 40 Time: 4.68.

Projected Round (2009): 4-5.

Stephen McGee was very inconsistent last year. For example, he was 19-of-23 for 183 yards and a score against Missouri. Three weeks later, he completed just eight passes (and one interception) in a 17-16 loss to Oklahoma. McGee was only a sophomore, but he needs to grow considerably over the next two years.

California_logo.gifNate Longshore, California down.jpg

Height: 6-5. Weight: 233.

Projected 40 Time: 4.88.

Projected Round (2009): 5.

3/26/08: Nate Longshore regressed in his junior year after a solid sophomore campaign. He threw only 16 touchdowns and managed a completion percentage under 60. One has to wonder how much he'll struggle without DeSean Jackson, Lavelle Hawkins and Craig Stevens in 2008.

Alabama_logo.gifJohn Parker Wilson, Alabama

Height: 6-2. Weight: 209.

Projected 40 Time: 4.72.

Projected Round (2009): 6.

John Parker Wilson doesn't exactly have the size that will make scouts salivate, but he has shown the ability to come up large in the clutch. Wilson was 16-of-20 for 243 yards and three scores at Arkansas. He was also 22-of-35 for 291 yards, two touchdowns and a pick at LSU. Any quarterback who can put up those numbers against LSU, especially on the road, has my respect.

Nebraska_logo.gifJoe Ganz, Nebraska

Height: 6-1. Weight: 200.

Projected 40 Time: 4.65.

Projected Round (2009): 6.

3/26/08: Considering what he was able to accomplish at the end of the 2007 season, it'll be exciting to watch Joe Ganz this year, especially now that Nebraska fans won't have to worry about Bill Callahan screwing up any game plans. In just three starts, Ganz threw for 1,399 yards, 15 touchdowns and seven picks. Nebraska scored 163 points in those three contests.

Arizona_logo.gifWillie Tuitama, Arizona

Height: 6-3. Weight: 211.

Projected 40 Time: 4.78.

Projected Round (2009): 6-7.

3/26/08: Put up solid numbers as a junior (3,683 yards, 28 touchdowns, 12 picks) and only had one really bad game (at Oregon State). Even against USC, Willie Tuitama managed to complete 30-of-43 attempts for 233 yards.

VirginiaTech_logo.gifSean Glennon, Virginia Tech

Height: 6-4. Weight: 225.

Projected 40 Time: 4.69.

Projected Round (2009): 7.

3/26/08: Needs to be more consistent to warrant draft consideration.

UCLA_logo.gifBen Olson, UCLA

Height: 6-4. Weight: 231.

Projected 40 Time: 4.72.

Projected Round (2009): 7-FA.

Ben Olson struggled coming back from a knee injury in 2007, failing to complete 50 percent of his passes.

Olson's 2006 season had three distinctive parts to it. In his first two games, he threw 442 yards, five touchdowns and one pick. The following two contests, Olson was guilty of four interceptions and no scores. On Oct. 7, Olson suffered a season-ending knee injury against Arizona. Thus, Olson's pretty much an enigma at this point.

One glaring negative: Olson will be 26 in April 2009. That may scare a few teams away.

TexasSouthern_logo.gifBobby Reid, Texas Southern

Height: 6-3. Weight: 235.

Projected 40 Time: 4.63.

Projected Round (2009): FA.

Bobby Reid was the quarterback that sparked the controversy between Oklahoma State's head coach and the media. Reid was reported as being a soft player whose mother fed him chicken after the game. I'd comment on this, but I don't want Mike Gundy slitting my throat or anything.

A tremendous athlete, Bobby Reid leads a potent Oklahoma State offense that averaged 39.2 points per game in 2006. But that doesn't mean Reid's a great prospect. The rising junior failed to complete more than 50 percent of his passes on four occasions. He was also very inconsistent, going 23-of-35 for 411 yards and five scores at Kansas, and 11-of-31 for 145 yards, one touchdown and a pick at Texas Tech.

Reid's a scrambling quarterback, so he can get out of tight situations when pass protection fails, but his aerial game leaves much to be desired. Furthermore, one can only speculate how effective (or rather, ineffective) Reid will be once Adarius Bowman moves on to the NFL.

Toledo_logo.gifClint Cochran, Toledo

Height: 6-3. Weight: 205.

Projected 40 Time: 4.78.

Projected Round (2009): FA.

I understand your point.  It could be one of two things.

1)  Brohm and Cantwell are two great prospects.

2)  Brohm and Cantwell are two great stat inflated system QB's that may not produce anything close to what they produced in College.

ajohnson1050 (3/29/2008)
So Celtwhat system inflated the numbers for Louisville QB's Brohm and Cantwell?

It's not the Run and Shoot like Hawaii's Brennan runs. It's not the spread offense that Florida, West Virginia, Oregon, and Illinois run. Tell me, what exactly is it?

The Louisville Passing System. Short LPS. Most effective passing system in the recent years and brought into popularity by Bobby Petrino.

haha, just kidding, made that up.

First, I didn't say that it was the system that inflated his numbers.  I mentioned it as a possibility.  I do believe though he is a very talented stat inflated system QB. 

Second, It's not the spread offense that Florida, West Virginia, Oregon, and Illinois run.  It's the spread offense that Louisville runs.  Louisville ran a spread with 4 or 5 receivers about 65-70% of the time.  Where Petrino differed from Kragthorpe was he mostly ran out of the power I and Kragthorpe tended to use a single back on running plays.

Somecut8 was not far off with his post in this thread.  Petrino called it the "FTS" offense, or "Feed the Stud".  Kragthorpe ran basically the same offense.  Check out Tulsa's offense or Paul Smith's stats.

I refuse to get into a long discussion again about Brohm.  I don't think he is as good as quite a few people here think he is.  I think Ryan and Henne are better.  If we end up with him that would be fine with me.  I do not want us to trade any picks to move up and get him.

Actually UL went to a more deep oriented passing attack which Brohm approved of which led to a suggestive shot at Petrino.

Despite the change in system and porous Oline play (and defensive play that put more pressure on UL's offense), Brohm had his best year of his career.

Cantwell has proven jack squat.

I think this is one of two sites I've seen projecting him that high when in actuality it's based off nothing.

The success rate of guys who've only started two years in college is bad enough. A guy who will only be a ONE year starter projected that high? A guy who's been sacked for more times than he's thrown TDs? Please.
