What if Colt Brennan falls to the middle late rounds?
 
It looks as if Colt Brennan didn't impress too much at the Senior Bowl this year. I believe some GM's feel as if he's a product of a great offensive system. They are questioning his mechanics, release points, and some question his physical stature.

For a guy that's set all kinds of records and can obviously play, should we draft him if he slides to the 3rd-5th round of the draft.

I think you've got to take a chance on him if he slides to the 4th round or later (i believe we have a 4th....no i didn't research it). Yes, i know JC is our guy, but why not take a chance to groom someone that could work on mechanics and build strength. Then in a couple years, who knows...Good qb's are hard to find and everyone wants one. Think of Rivers/Brees. Thoughts?

We don't have a 4th, gave it up in the Duckett deal.

[QUOTE]•Colt Brennan, Hawaii quarterback. His stock has been in free fall since the end of the regular season. He will need to weigh more than the 186 pounds he weighed at the Senior Bowl (he blamed it on the flu), and he needs to answer questions about his character in interviews with executives. [B]One front-office man said Brennan has been coming across like a "jackass" in interviews[/B][/QUOTE]

Granted, that's just one man's opinion but it's potentially something the other teams are keeping an eye on.

NOOOOOOO!!!!! I'd rather us bring back Brunell to play 3rd string than draft this guy. He IS NOT pro material and we have too many other needs than wasting a draft pick on someone who doesn't have a chance to play anytime soon.

Have you seen any pictures of him? He looks like a total tool. I've also seen a few interviews of the guy and came away less than impressed.

Yeah, i've heard him interview on the radio and he came off really well. I've seen him on TV and he didn't come accross as well. Maybe its just a look or personality thing...not sure.

I know that he got into a little trouble a few years ago but I believe he's been a model citizen since.

Sounds like it he would be a project, and of course our scouts would have to do some due diligence, but might be worth a look.

Not quotes you like to hear about a QB prospect, even a late round guy:

"In June Jone's system, even Timmy Chang :vomit:excelled."
"The best thing for Brennan to do is face some serious competition his senior year, but that is not to be the case. Only Boise St. brings a quality defense."
"He throws too many interceptions, needs to develop more patience and improve his footwork"

He blew up competition in the WAC, only weighs 190, is "barely 6'2", and a "comes across as a jackass" (LOL). Let Mike Martz draft him.

Re: What if Colt Brennan falls to the middle late rounds?
 
here is a scouting report for him:
[quote]Position: Quarterback
School: Hawaii

Status: Senior

Height: 6-2

Weight: 195

40-Yard Dash: 4.90

Positives:
Brennan possesses a very live arm with surprising accuracy. Possibly the quickest release among all the quarterbacks in the draft. He's athletic enough to evade a pass rush and roll out, but not much else. Brennan stands tall in the pocket and makes quick decisions, understanding where to place the ball, and sometimes seems to be able to read opposing coverages, which will lower his learning curve in the NFL.
Negatives:
Colt's a bit light at somewhere between 190 and 200 pounds, but has the frame to get to a better playing weight for an NFL QB. Because he will inevitably draw the “system quarterback” label due to his time in coach June Jones' pass-happy system, he will have to test very well at the Combine and in workouts. He's sometimes too willing to throw to an outlet receiver when he has a man open farther downfield.
Overview:
Brennan's an odd prospect. On one hand, he looks like he could be the second coming of Joe Montana, with a strong arm and a natural feel for the game. But on the other, there's significant doubt about how much of his success is his, and how much of it is the system he was in.[/quote]

The scouting report failed to mention that Brennan's "negatives" includes being a massive douche bag.

Brennen is one of the most accurate passers in this draft. Given he threw a few ints, his completion rating is still over 70% for three years. I live in Hawaii and have been watching him for some time now. He is the greatest thing that ever happened to Hawaii football, and had to deal with the preasure of the whole state on his shoulders week after week. There were many times this year where he wasn't having a very good game but would still drive down for the winning touchdown. He can handle pressure, and he has the composure to drive down for the winning/tying score. He is developed enough for a pro system, especially a passing system (Jim Zorn's system). I say if he falls to the fifth or sixth snag him and keep him as our third stringer, you never know who will be the next tom brady.

I haven't heard much good about him since I watched he & his boys get pummelled by Georgia. But to be fair, there are a lot of qb's who are "prospects" that might not be as good. We really need to get a young qb to be our #3 & groom as an eventual #2.

I can't see taking Colt in the 3rd, there are too many good players available that have a higher probability of success. In the 5th maybe at best.

Wow, this is very different from what I heard yesterday. Colt Brennan was on NFL radio and the GM on before him said that he was one of the nicest guys he's met (this was over the phone, etc). I don't want to touch him, and the GM said he had some really big flaws in his game, but said he was a top notch guy.

You're not going to find a much bigger Colt Brennan fan than me, and I would prefer not to draft him before round 5. I think he has the attitude to be a good player. The kid had to walk on at Hawai'i, they barely even recruit and he couldn't get a scholarship... Anyway, the kid likes to prove people wrong and he CAN throw the ball. He's got as quick a release as I've seen out of a college QB, but he does throw some picks.

I, personally, think that saying he "throws a lot of picks" is a dumb statement because he also throws a lot of touchdowns. Picks are going to happen when you have to throw 50 times a game.
