Kevin Hogan: best Chiefs QB prospect?

He seems like the prototypical Andy Reid type QB. Hogan has a lot of pro's that describe an Andy Reid/John Dorsey type of QB.

-He's smart.
-He's mobile.
-He runs a pro style offense.
-He's a winner (2 time Rose Bowl Champ, 39-11 record)
*Won Rose Bowl as a freshman taking over for Andrew Luck

He's won big time games and his teammates rave about his leadership. Right now Aaron Murray is a somewhat similar prospect, but the big difference is size. Hogan is a solid 6'4" 218 lbs with broad shoulders and a nice frame.

Yeah he has a weird throwing motion like Rivers, but who cares? He can make all the throws and has solid arm strength. He appears to have some nice footwork and technique. If he has any real flaws, I don't see why a year or two on the bench couldn't fix it.

Truth be told, he reminds me a whole lot of Kirk Cousins.

Observations on the bad:
-He does struggle with accuracy. Not only deep, but he just doesn't put the ball in the receiver's bread basket consistently so that he can make a play after the catch.
-He does hold the ball too long often enough and that could be a real concern in the pro game when he doesn't have an all-world offensive line to protect him. Sometimes he just has to get rid of the football or take a sack.
-He makes some head-scratching decisions at times, especially under pressure.
-He has that terribly awkward delivery reminiscent of Phillip Rivers and Byron Leftwich, so the question is which QB will you end up with?


Now, I do agree that there is plenty there to like and work with. I think a large portion of his flaws are coachable. Hogan is a very nice developmental prospect that I'd take a shot on in the mid-rounds if he's there. I wouldn't touch him before round 4; round 5 would be most ideal. If there is a huge early run on QBs, Hogan will slide up undoubtedly. If that were the case Round 3 might, and that's a big might, come into play there but I wouldn't feel all giddy about it.

Both excellent observations.

Fortunately for the Chiefs, with Smith only being 31 and playing the best ball of his career, they have the opportunity to bring along someone who does have the potential for QBOTF. I do think that they need to do this sooner rather than later and Hogan does check a lot of boxes for what Reid likes in a QB.

However, I personally feel that there are a number of QB's in this draft that do that - Lynch, Hackenberg, Hogan, Wentz all come to mind when considering what Reid typically likes at the position.

Hogan is a nice player and would work well in the system, especially if he got the chance to sit and rework his mechanics a bit. A little less mobile than Smith, less accurate but a bigger arm.
