I've seen him play in person a few times, but I always thought of him more as a runner. Flacco was, obviously, more impressive versus UNI.

You never know. Kurt Warner was not drafted and made the squad from the AFL. 2 MVPs and a SB trophy.

Anybody know what school Jerry Rice attended?

Mississippi Valley State. Let him compete in camp. I thought Thigpen looked very good in limited action last summer.

New Hampshire (I sort of doubt anyone has even heard of the school let alone the player). I am pretty sure this kid will be there just to provide throws to receivers.

You never know though, he could be the next Kurt Warner.:shrug:

Did not play against top competition...Lacks the ideal size that you look for...Does not have a very strong arm...Can be reckless at times...Makes iffy decisions when under duress...Worked from the shotgun and has to adjust to a pro style offense.Yup sounds just like what we need.ROFLROFLROFL

Nearly every player can be picked apart--especially QBs.....hell, you'd find similar comments in the evaluations of nearly every QB in the draft.

Maybe we should look up the write-ups on Tom Brady, Tony Romo....just to compare.... :hmmm:

Santos led his team to 3 straight wins over I-A teams. Remember he came from an I-AA school so that is impressive.

QB TOM BRADY
(6-4 1/2, 211, 5.25) Michigan
Notes: Baseball catcher and football quarterback in high school who was drafted by the Montreal Expos in the 18th round of the June 1995 baseball draft. Opted for football and redshirted at Michigan in ’95. Saw limited action in ’96 and ’97 and started the past two years. Completed 3-of-5 passes for 26 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in ’96, 12-15-103-0-0 in ’97, 214-350-2,636-15-12 in ’98 and 180-295-2,216-16-6 in ’99, when he often shared time with super sophomore Drew Henson. Went all the way against Alabama in the Orange Bowl and completed 34-46-369-4. Unlike many Michigan quarterbacks, Brady is a pocket-type passer who plays best in a dropback-type system.

Positives: Good height to see the field. Very poised and composed. Smart and alert. Can read coverages. Good accuracy and touch. Produces in big spots and in big games. Has some Brian Griese in him and is a gamer. Generally plays within himself. Team leader.

Negatives: Poor build. Very skinny and narrow. Ended the ’99 season weighing 195 pounds and still looks like a rail at 211. Looks a little frail and lacks great physical stature and strength. Can get pushed down more easily than you’d like. Lacks mobility and ability to avoid the rush. Lacks a really strong arm. Can’t drive the ball down the field and does not throw a really tight spiral. System-type player who can get exposed if he must ad-lib and do things on his own.

Summary: Is not what you’re looking for in terms of physical stature, strength, arm strength and mobility, but he has the intangibles and production and showed great Griese-like improvement as a senior. Could make it in the right system but will not be for everyone.

Completion percentage--which trumps just about everything else, imo.

Not that anyone should expect anything from an undrafted free agent anway.

Amazing. I had no idea, I presumed he was a walk-on UDFA.

You were right. 6th rounder for Minny in '07.
