Re: Late Round Gems

Jarrett Brown remains one of my late round gems:

West Virginia's Jarrett Brown got the best reviews by far among a weak morning quarterback group.

Jarrett Brown/QB/West Virginia: Brown was one of the few signal-callers who displayed NFL caliber talent today. His passes had terrific velocity and Brown's accuracy was better on Sunday than at any point the past eight months. He was effective throwing the deep out, the money pass at the combine.

Re: Late Round Gems

INDIANAPOLIS
We're taking a look inside the performances of the quarterbacks who participated in the NFL Combine.


NOTES:
Heights and weights are the official measurements taken at the NFL Combine.
Players are ranked based on their throwing performance only.
Official height example: "6055" = 6 feet, 5 5/8 inches.
Official height example: "5017" = 5 feet, 11 7/8 inches.

1) Jarrett Brown/West Virginia/6027/224: Just like he performed during Senior Bowl week practices, Brown wowed scouts with his big arm and accuracy. He throws the ball so effortlessly that you wonder why he hadn't been a starter at West Virginia for a longer period of time. He has outstanding arm strength and surprisingly good touch.

What you also see is a young quarterback that throws with tremendous confidence. You can tell he knows he's good, but he backs it up with almost flawless accuracy and execution. No quarterback has helped himself more from late January through late February. I can't see how Brown makes it out of the third round based on his upside alone.

Re: Late Round Gems

Are you Jarrett Brown? The red flag from my perspective is that his release is similar to Vick's AND that the reviews vary on his accuracy. One says "flawless accuracy," while another says "makes receivers work for catches," and another says "His accuracy was not deadly." That sounds a lot like Mike Vick. That's somewhat to be expected from a late-round QB though, so I wouldn't be completely opposed to spending a 4th or later pick on him assuming we don't take a different qb earlier.

Doesn't matter how quick it is when a little under half the time he misses the target. So no I don't believe Vick has a good release in a game situation. Now if you want to impress a scout with how much velocity you can put on a football then fine he has an amazing release, but it's like getting a rocket launcher without a targeting system.

THERE'S YOUR ANALOGY!! Only took half a month.

Anyway I will never respect a true mobile QB until they can put up respectable passing numbers. Most of the mobile QB's that have become successful almost always evolved into pocket passers; Steve Young, McNabb, McNair, heck even Cunningham eventually reached his peak when he became a pocket passer. In the end the fact remains, a football travels much faster down the field then any QB can run.

I think the point that is lost on you is that Michael Vick has one of the better releases in the league.

Having a good release is not a red flag.

LoL, i'm not Jarrett Brown.
I just like to support my opinions with the latest info.

So your reply is to attempt to change the subject?

The comparison to Vick was about his release not his accuracy.

The fact that you can't admit that Vick has a good release imo tells a lot about your willingness or lack thereof to admit when wrong.

HTTR!

Release is directly related to accuracy. If you have a crappy release your accuracy suffers. Vick is inaccurate ergo he has a poor release. I believe you're the one trying to change the subject. And please don't speak of things you know little of. I have a whole book worth of post where I admit I'm wrong. All right maybe a childrens book but it's pretty reckless to suggest such a character flaw without evidence, or at the very least a limited scope.

Anyway to review a release determines velocity and accuracy. If one of those components is lacking then the quality of the release is reduced. I believe you're confusing a quick release with a good release.

Your argument doesn't hold much water, imo.
By your argument if someone isn't accurate or lacks velocity then they must have a poor release?
That simple isn't logical.

The quality of a QBs release is indepent from accuracy or velocity.
You can have a horrible release and good accuracy or velocity or a great release and horrible accuracy or velocity the factors are independent.

*And btw i was refering to this point of contention we're having not about your general posting history of which i have no clue nor care.

Look it, if you don't think Vick has a good release cool beans bro.

Hey, whatever floats your boat.

HTTR!
Agree to disagree

How dare you not read my posting history. It's second on the NY Times best seller list right now. Lol, anyway yeah I guess we have different definitions and feelings on the issues. No use in acting like this is ES. So yes, agree to disagree.

Brown is still working on getting the ball from under center and is stiff in his drop.

Scout.com: Senior Bowl Q&A: QB Jarrett Brown
By Ed Thompson
Scout.com Senior NFL Analyst
Posted Jan 29, 2010



| More

While Florida's Tim Tebow had the majority of the media huddled around him at the end of Wednesday's South Team practice, Scout.com's Ed Thompson focused his attention on the quarterback who was delivering the best results on the field during the practice sessions--West Virginia's Jarrett Brown.


Ed Thompson: Jarrett, I've been very impressed by your pocket presence this week.

Jarrett Brown: I've always had a knack for it. I was always a pure passer. Some people think I've always been a running quarterback, but I didn't get my speed until I got to college. I feel comfortable under the center and dropping back and just sitting in the pocket.

Thompson: You putting some zip on your passes and you look like you're getting your timing down with this all-star cast of receivers.

Brown: Yeah, you know that first day, my head was kind of spinning a bit. But now I'm getting to know the plays inside out and getting great anticipation on the routes. So I'm able to throw a nicer and more relaxed ball.

Thompson: As you're meeting with these NFL teams, what is it that you want them to know about you as a person?

Brown: I really just want them to know who I am, just the real me, Jarrett Brown.

Thompson: Tell me about your family and the role they've played in helping you get here today.

Brown: My family is everything, I wouldn't be here without my family. I'm the youngest in the family. I grew up in West Palm Beach and had all these great guys who pointed me in the right direction. I just didn't want to fail them.


Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images

Thompson: I know that all the fans and the media are going nuts over Tim Tebow, but you've been the best quarterback out here so far this week. I like your poise, the energy level you're bringing to your team, and your execution.

Brown: Thank you.

Thompson: Talk a bit about working with Pat White until he moved on to the Miami Dolphins last year. Have you talked to him at all about what you'll be experiencing in the coming months?

Brown: I haven't talked to him about the Senior Bowl, but I have talked to him about his experience with the Dolphins organization. This is a great coaching staff. They kind of remind me of the West Virginia staff. They are great people, the kind of people I want to work with. Pat came back to school and started showing me some things. And sure enough, the coach here said something to me about one of those things, so it was great that Pat had already told me.

Thompson: I know you've met with plenty of NFL teams, but who are just a few of the ones you've talked to so far? I'm sure the fans back in West Virginia would like to hear about that.

Brown: Mostly all of them. I really appreciate the support from

Travis Ivey DT/NT 6'4 341

02/16/2010 - PRO POTENTIAL: DL Travis Ivey - Another Terrapin who battled injuries during his college career, Ivy started the final 16 games of his tenure in College Park. He'll get a look at the next level with a strong performance at the NFL Combine, and was set to play in the Texas vs. the Nation game on Feb. 6.

02/04/2010 - Texas vs. the Nation, Wednesday: Maryland nose tackle Travis Ivey measured in at 6-foot-4, 341 pounds this week. He looked strong in the middle and rejected a pass with his 10-plus inch hands in Wednesday's practice.

Travis Ivey, DT, Maryland

Maryland's Profile for Travis Ivey
Overview

Travis Ivey started all 12 games as a senior at DT and received an invite to the Texas vs. Nation all-star game. Ivey stayed healthy his senior year after battling leg and foot injuries earlier in his collegiate career. Didn't start playing football until his junior year of HS, as he was a basketball player prior to that.

Strengths
Ivey has excellent size and above-average athleticism for the NT position. He's a space eater with the strength to hold position well. Has exceptional lower-body strength to anchor and drive. Athletic player with good explosiveness to be disruptive in the backfield. Can shoot the gap. Has long arms and is adept at knocking down passes.

Weaknesses
Inconsistent player who really hasn't shown the production that a player with his skills should. He's more than just a space eater, yet he struggles to make plays. He doesn't play with an attitude and seems content to just push people around without an intent to get to the ball. Had trouble earning a starting position prior to senior season. Really needs to be coached up and motivated.
Projection
With more teams playing a 3-4, he'll get some attention with his size and athleticism, but his lack of production and motivation will keep him from being a high draft pick. Look for him to hear his name in the second half of day 3 of the 2010 NFL Draft. He'll need some time with good coaching before he can be a productive NFL player, but he could get there if he sets his mind to it.

Maryland:....Also at defensive tackle for Maryland is Travis Ivey. The coaches raved about his improved play and leadership during the spring, and the offensive line was having a tough time containing him. But he got a concussion in the fourth week and missed the rest of the spring. He also had a scheduled shoulder surgery at the end of the spring.
