Tom Brandstater (QB)
Height: 6'5"
Weight: 220
College: Fresno State
Conference: WAC
Hometown: Turlock, CA
High School: Turlock

Combine Results:
40 Yard Dash : 4.95 seconds
Vertical Jump : 28.5 inches
Broad Jump : 106.0 inches
3 Cone Drill : 6.93 seconds
20 Yard Shuttle : 4.37 seconds


Round: 6
Pick (Overall): 1 (174)

Pick Analysis: Brandstater is a big, strong quarterback. He's a good football player who was productive in college at Fresno State. He's got good speed and athleticism for his size and comes from a good college system. He gives Josh McDaniels a young signal-caller to develop over the years, like he did with Matt Cassel.


Regards as the premier quarterback in the Western Athletic Conference, Brandstater possesses the range and arm strength that National Football League teams look for in a pro style quarterback. The unquestioned leader of the team put up impressive numbers since taking over the starting position as a sophomore, but has also excelled in the classroom, earning conference academic honors the last three seasons. His intelligence on the field is evident, but academically it is even more impressive, having graduated before his junior campaign and is finishing up work on his Master's degree.



Fresno State has boasted some great college quarterbacks in recent years and Brandstater has placed his name right next to the likes of Kevin Sweeney, Trent Dilfer, David Carr and Billy Volek in the school record books. He closed out his career ranking fifth in school annals in pass completions (584) and fourth in pass attempts (989), while ranking sixth all-time with 6,857 yards passing and 7,006 yards in total offense. His 47 touchdown passes placed him seventh in Bulldogs annals.



At Turlock High School, Brandstater was a relatively unknown prep quarterback, as he played in an offense that relied more on the running attack. He threw for more than 1,000 yards as a senior, but made a better impression as a defensive back. He earned first-team All-District defensive honors from the Modesto Bee and guided his team into the Sac-Joaquin Section Championship vs. Stockton Lincoln in his final campaign.



Brandstater was the top quarterback performer in Fresno State's Summer Football Camp in 2003. He decided to enroll at the university in 2004, spending the season as a redshirt. In 2005, he saw brief action in eight games behind starter Paul Pinegar, completing just 6 of 13 passes for 49 yards, one touchdown and an interception.



The following season, Brandstater earned the first of three Academic All-Western Athletic Conference honors. He started 10 of 11 games, completing 146 of 268 attempts (54.5 percent) for 1,490 yards, 13 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. He then spent the summer working on his degree and with coach Pat Hill, as the pair worked on improving his throwing mechanics.



Brandstater arrived back on campus for 2007 fall drills having already earned his degree. It was time for him to also earn some national recognition. He finished 23rd in the NCAA with a 140.49 passing efficiency rating and finished sixth in the WAC with an average of 213.23 yards per game. He amassed 2,654 yards on 211 of 337 passes (62.6 percent), connecting for 15 touchdowns against only five interceptions.



The three-time Academic All-WAC choice topped his previous season's numbers as a senior. He ranked fourth in the league in passing efficiency and total offense, as he hit on 221 of 371 tosses (59.6 percent), generating a career-high 2,664 passing yards to go with 18 touchdowns, as he collected 2,614 yards in total offense.

Tom Brandstater - QB - Fresno State
Height: 6-5 | Weight: 220 | 40-Time: 4.95

Strengths:
Prototypical height and weight...Accurate on short and intermediate throws...Nice touch and timing...Very intelligent...Can throw on the run...Real tough...Hard worker...Leader...Played in a pro style system.

Weaknesses:
Arm strength's merely average...Has some issues with his delivery and mechanics...Struggles with the deep ball...Stares down his targets..Not really a threat to scramble...Makes too many bad decisions...Upside ?

Notes:
Three-year starter for the Bulldogs...Redshirted in 2004 then backed up Paul Pinegar in 2005...Was a three-time member of the Academic All-WAC team...Earned his bachelor's degree prior to the start of his junior season...Played under four different offensive coordinators in four years...Solid college player who has some tools to work with and just might be worth a late round flyer as a potential long-term backup

He's the 6th round QB with the amazingly coincidental name that the broncos just drafted from Fresno.

Orton will tutor him this season. Next season he will take over the 9-7 team from '09/Cutler7624

Mandatory pick for a team that only has 2 QBs on the roster.

I've watched this guy play a lot, and he's not a "smart" player. He made a ton of big time mistakes that cost Fresno State multiple games. A lot of folks here are glad he's gone so that David Carr's little brother can have a chance it lead the Bulldogs (if he starts his first year).

McDaniel's would have to be a genuis to mold Brandstetter into anything in the NFL. Weak arm, and makes bad decisions, and can't really scramble. Aside from Tom's size, I really don't see any plusses from this guy.

The Bronco's are so going to suck this year! LOL!

The Broncos are seriously going to start the season with Kyle Orton as their QB.

My wife is from Fresno and is a huge Fresno State fan. Therefore, I have seen this guy play a lot. There is no way he will be a late round reach that pays off. He makes made decisions and isn't that talented either. They wasted a pick here.

Good to hear. That would suck to have a real Tom Brady leading any of our division rivals.

You don't actually believe random Fresno fans know QBs better than Josh McDaniels, do you?

Besides, this is a sixth round pick. He's expected to be a backup. If he becomes anything different, that will be the exception, not the rule.

As long as he has "chief" in his username, he's not random fan. He's a chiefsplanet-certified football expert. It's a rule.

If McDaniels turns this guy in to anything my hat is off to him.

Good luck with that.

That's exactly my point, McDaniels would have to develop Brandstetter from the ground up to even have a QB worthy of back up status.

I was really wondering how he kept his starting role last year...Folks here in Fresno were actually calling for Pat Hill to be fired (who is very popular despite his poor record) because of Brandstetter...That's how bad this guy is. Unless, McDaniels is a genius or perhaps a wizard...this is a terrible pick.

This is true. There is a whole vetting process that goes along with it. Exhausting but worth it. :clap:
