Boomer-Boomer said:Hey Travis, he's an interesting prospect. The one thing that may worry scouts is that he is in the 6-1 area. That height may concern people. I know Mike Belotti thinks a lot of him - he reckons he is on the same learning curve as Joey Harrington and that he may end up with a higher pro grade. That's praise indeed.
But he has a very good arm, he is accurate and he is mobile. Plus he seems to be the leader of that team and a sort of fiery, Brett Favre character with his competetive edge - like Brett he's something of a good ole boy. He looks compact in the pocket and has good technique. It will be interesting to see where he ends up when all is said and done, because if he improves from junior to senior the way he did from soph to junior he could be making a strong move. He will need help from Demetrius Williams and Cam Colvin at WR and Tim Day at TE especially, but he could be a real mover up draft boards.
Thanks for the in depth response. That is pretty much exactly what I was wanting to hear. I too think that height is not such a major issue when determining the worth of a QB. I like that Kellen is fiery and mobile, two areas I feel are of the most importance when "measuring" a QB. (no pun intended-actually it was intended!)
