As much as I like them, a real QB needs to be drafted in the next year or two.
The main knock on his physical ability seem to be his height and arm strength. His arm strength was graded poor at the combine. But he was injured during the combine and did not throw well.
He threw much better at hisUH pro day. For what it's worth, one NFL scout in attendance told UH Blogger Sam Khan Jr. that Keenum had above average arm strength.
As far as height goes, his is not ideal but there have been other successful NFL QBs who were not the tallest guys.
