I'd be surprised if GMs were more worried about his arm than other factors. Keenum throws a nice ball.

there are several reasons he went undrafted - "your eyes" being one of them. if you see a floater for 30 yards and a 10 yard out that doesnt have much zip, that is the definition. if someone else sees the same thing it becomes popular opinion and spreads like wildfire. a 60 yard strike followed by a 20 yard laser dont register because the conclusion is already reached. your eyes saw what scouts did - he didnt have enough arm despite having more than enough arm.

another is school history - from andre ware to kevin kolb. a UofH product isnt going to produce next level. another is the offense. a spread record breaker isnt going to make it because the hawaii and texas tech record breakers arent NFL caliber quarterbacks. another is his size. teams want a 6'5" 240lb prototype. another is his age. he was 2 years too old coming out of college. another is the system didnt have him pro ready and there wasnt an answer to whether he could adjust to being under the center.

there are many factors going into his not being drafted. do any of those speak to the quarterback he is or could become? i think not, but then again i'm not being paid to see these things.

I was wrong. Just looked up some scouting reports and it appears that arm-strength and a lack of pocket presence were his two biggest knocks.

I'm good with Keenum ball velocity at 55 mph.
Same as Russell Wilson;
One mile faster than EJ Manuel, the last first rounder.
One mile slower than Cam Newton, a previous number one overall pick.
From that link:

Joe Flacco, Delaware 55
Isn't Flacco considered to have maybe the best arm in the league? Either this study is off, we're taking it out of context, of people don't know what they're talking about. Why would there ever be any doubt in Keenum's arm strength if these numbers are freely available?

Keenum's list of converts grows

By John McClain

October 30, 2013

For the last two seasons, I've been besieged with emails from University of Houston fans extolling the talent and character of Texans quarterback Case Keenum.

There was no questioning Keenum's character, not after the fortitude he showed during six years at UH. He spent more time on campus than some professors.

I have to admit I didn't believe those loyal Cougars fans who never wavered in their conviction Keenum could succeed in the NFL. Every team bypassed him in every round of the draft. How could they all be so wrong so many times?

Keenum spent his rookie season on the practice squad. He was inactive behind Matt Schaub and T.J. Yates for the first six games this year.

Coach Gary Kubiak, offensive coordinator Rick Dennison and quarterbacks coach Karl Dorrell have a combined 57 years of NFL experience, but it wasn't until Oct. 20 they finally unleashed Keenum at Kansas City.

Great story in the offing

Now, though, after watching Keenum throw for 271 yards and a touchdown without an interception in a 17-16 loss to the unbeaten Chiefs and examining so many I-told-you-so comments from those same UH fans, I'm a believer. I think.

Keenum has a long way to go before he proves he can be successful on a consistent basis, but he's off to a good start. We're going to find out a lot more about his legitimacy in Sunday night's nationally televised game against Indianapolis at Reliant Stadium.

Keenum was impressive at Arrowhead Stadium with one week to practice. Now he's getting two weeks to prepare for the Colts.

His teammates like what they've seen.

"He's a natural-born leader," left tackle Duane Brown said. "Some guys just have that aura about them, that swagger. They rally guys together. People just naturally have a certain level of respect for them.

"He works hard. He's very vocal. He tries to get the energy level up in practice. That's good to see. I'm excited (to see) what he can do for us."

Will a star be born on NBC, or will the Texans suffer a sixth consecutive defeat and join Atlanta as the biggest disappointments of the NFL season?

If the Texans can upset the first-place Colts - and that's a big if considering what a disaster they've been - they have a chance to get on a roll. None of the next three opponents - Arizona, Oakland and Jacksonville - has a winning record.

Imagine what a terrific story it would be if Keenum ignites the Texans to a 6-5 record when New England visits Reliant Stadium.

We're getting ahead of ourselves, of course.

It would be helpful if Keenum had running backs Arian Foster and Ben Tate healthy. It would help if tight end Owen Daniels were ready to go and not stuck on injured reserve. And it would help if inside linebacker Brian Cushing and strong safety Danieal Manning weren't on injured reserve, too.

But the absence of the injured players makes the Keenum situation even more intriguing. He doesn't have healthy running backs or the Pro Bowl tight end. And the defense is short-handed without Cushing and Manning.

No. 1 pick a QB?

The coaches have high expectations for Keenum or he wouldn't be starting.

"I want to see him move forward," Kubiak said. "He's got to improve. Our team's got to improve around him."

Unless Keenum is injured or plays so poorly Kubiak has no other choice than to bench him, expect Keenum to start the rest of the season. The Texans must find out if he can be their quarterback or if they'll have to use their first-round pick on a prospect.
THE REST OF THE STORY

In response to the "Keenum went undrafted for a reason" argument - that's true. The reason is a lot simpler than y'all mental contortionists would like to admit. The reason is stunningly simple - you were WRONG.

Default Re: Who gets the start at QB after the bye?

Published scouting reports are humorous. They are often filled with miscalculations and thrown together without much thought. In that business, respect is essential. So, those publications tend to organize their analysis to fit in with conventional wisdom instead of actually representing an isolated perspective on a player.

Clearly, though, more than just the publications were turned off by Keenum. The question is "why" and are the issues legitimate and unsurmountable.

I think his size is what most likely dismissed him in the eyes of the NFL scouts... coming in below that minimum bar of 6 ft. 2 inches, without any eye-catching skills to supplement the lack of heighth was probably a deal-breaker.

I have no idea if he will become a good NFL QB. I hope so. What seemed clear is that he did not lack necessary arm strength, accuracy, or have any mechanical issues with his delivery. I also did not see his heighth as an issue.

Here is my biggest concern: his ability to throw in the pocket, from under center... He has to overcome footwork issues from a lack of experience under center and teams scheming for him and preparing to clutter the middle throwing lanes with bodies and arms... will he be able to see and also get passes away without being knocked down? I think that will be the biggest physical test.

Keenum is the best QB on the Texans right now. When you consider Schaub and Yates though, that's not exactly high praise. But until he proves it to me otherwise, I'm going to continue to believe that Keenum is the future of the Texans.

Joe Montana
official height: 6 ft 2 in (1.88 m)
official weight: 205 lb.

Case Keenum
official height: 6 ft 1 in (1.85 m)
official weight: 205 lb.

I doubt 3 hundredths of a meter will completely make or
break a quarterback's career.

And just for you guys jonesing for him:

Johnny Manziel (from draft scout)
official height: 5 ft 11.5 in
official weight: 210 lb.

One should never make more out of the numbers than
what they really are..

I think that sums it up nicely.

Throwing on the move should be his strong suit, teams will scheme to minimize that.

Lienart appeared to be on track in 2008.

Kolb was meh..... in 2011.

However, if you don't think Keenum's draft status was related to Kolb's performance, what's your theory? He's as tall as Wilson & Kaepernick, so it couldn't have been his height.

I do believe it's as you stated, several reasons stacked against him. However, this one may end up working in our favor. Being a little more mature than you're average kid straight out of college... hopefully he'll improve by leaps & bounds as he sees NFL defenses in games that count.

The Abilene native revealed that he strained his right hamstring running his second 40-yard dash at the combine and that it affected his throwing during drills. On Monday, there were no ill effects from the injury, as Keenum whizzed pass after pass to receivers on a variety of patterns, showed capable arm strength and displayed his athleticism with a 4.31-second time in the 20-yard shuttle and 6.89 seconds in the three-cone drill.
