He himself, iirc, even mentioned on the NFLN's combine coverage about how he wasn't as smooth at taking the ball from under center and dropping back as the other guys during the drills because he'd never really had to do it that much before.
I'll look around and see if I can track down the tape or transcript of that.
Add to that a problem with accuracy and poor throwing mechanics and he could've been the 3rd overall pick in the '06 draft.
