I hope we take a serious look at Colt Brennan. If Kubiak likes him, then letís draft him in the 2nd-4th round.

He is a very good player, second best qb in the draft, if he decides to hold through.

I thought I heard on the 610 sports flash he had decided to not enter the draft. Is he rated higher than Kevin Kolb from U of H?

Colt Brenan is ranked third behind Quinn and Russel and Kolb is raked 6th by most draft experts

Brennan declared, but he may decide to stay his senior year anyway. I think he's still looking at his options.

He is better than Kolb yes.

He is not the secnod best QB. He got a boost when Brohm decided to stay, but he is still not top 3 or 4.

Today was the deadline so I believe his decision is final now. Undoubtedly Brohm staying in school helped impact Brennan's decision. I'm still not a particularly big fan of his, I would not consider drafting him before the 3rd round but with a relatively thin QB class I think he could end up being taken by then.

IIRC, they have 72 hours to change their minds, so I guess they have til Wednesday/Thursday to backout as long as they haven't selected an agent. If they have an agent, then they can't backout.

OK, I hadn't heard that part of it. If I were him I'd probably return to school as I don't think he's a 1st rounder, although I'm not sure how much his stock can really improve next year, hard to live up to the stats he put up this year. If Brohm had come out this year I'm pretty sure he would have stayed in school as he could have ended up being the top QB next year.

He will make his decision on Wed at 3:00pm. I would really hope Houston would get him if he comes out. He is really good. I watched him all this year and I am really impressed with him.

6'3" and 190? Who wants Ichabod Crane as their QB? I wouldn't touch him in the first two rounds myself.

I'd take him over Kolb. I like this guy alot and I think given time to grow before thrown into the spotlight he will be an above average NFL QB.

I don't really like Brennan... but I don't think his size is an issue. He seems to have a pretty good arm.

Exactly, which to me means mid-late 2nd round at best unless someone is really desperate for QB help.

ahem... Joe Montana... ahemso since he is 190 pounds he is automatically Joe Montana? How many sub 200 pound QB's make it in the NFL on a regular basis? He may be a decent prospect but he comes from a system that produces guys like Klingler, Ware and Chang

Hey, I'm 190 myself and no one ever called me Mr. Montana.

I don't like Colt above the third. He will go higher because of his gaudy stats and the belief that he has not in fact lost of big 12 QB ability, and has not actually transformed into the WAC run-n-shoot QB that he actually is today.

You either like him or you don't, but . . .
1) He has the 72 hours of "seller's remorse" because he doesn't have an agent. I suspect what's holding him up is that someone (June Jones?) is trying to find out if a team will definitely take him in the first round.
2) The NFL underclassmen evaluation projected him to go in the 2nd round. Jones was quoted as saying that the evaluations skew on the conservative side. Jones has told juniors in his program looking to leave early that they shouldn't. Except this time.
3) His "gaudy" statistics shouldn't blind one from the fact that they mean something about his abilities. He can play in a pro set, he did that at Saddleback CC before coming to Hawaii, unlike Timmy Chang who spend high school and college in the run and shoot and had to learn to go under center in NFL training camps! Colt would have flourished in most college programs. No, he wouldn't have passed for 5500+ yards but he still would have been the most accurate passer in college football.
4) Yes, he needs 20 more lbs of meat on him; he acknowledges this. The question is whether he will gain it playing his senior season or doing it with a clipboard on an NFL sideline. The Joe Montana comparison is actually pretty apt. Kinda wiry, but runs well (Brennan is a very good runner, very good escapability, can get the first down); not the strongest arm but accurate; and is a gamer. And remember where Montana was drafted? So us Colt fans are worried about where he's drafted for his sake ($$); hey, if he's still around in the 3rd round, he would be a steal.

No, as I said, I don't particularly like him... just that 6'3" 190 easily becomes 6'3" 200 with some growing up and time in the weight room. I don't think that his size is at all an issue. It wasn't for Tom Brady, either.

"Brady, who is 6'4" and just 24 years old, came out of the '99 season at a skinny 195 pounds. Scouts noted he lacked mobility, had a decent, but not great arm, and might just be a product of the system Michigan employed. Keep in mind, the jury was still out on Griese before the 2000 NFL season. Brady has since added some bulk and is now up to 220 pounds."

Does that make Colt Brennan the next Tom Brady? No. As an aside, I think suboptimal height is a bit more valid of a concern than weight.
