2010 NFL Draft QB Rankings, 21-94

  1. Levi Brown: Bills, 7th round. Troy: Good size. Streaky accuracy. Average arm strength and speed. Knows when to throw ball away. Athletic. 3/4 release and often pushes the ball rather than having complete arm motion. Good accuracy on move. Checks down to secondary receivers. In Texas vs. Nation practice, late on reads. In game, seemed nervous under pressure. Below-average touch deep. Locked on WR. Looks unwilling to run. Inconsistent release point led to some overthrows. May make team as 3rd QB, but doesn’t have NFL future.
  2. Tim Hiller: Colts, UDFA. W. Mich.: Great size. Some durability issues, but has played well with pain. Fairly accurate. OK mechanics, but could use some work. A statue QB who has OK pocket movement, but is not effective on the move. Works spread offense most of the time, but has a little experience under center. Said to be a student of the game. In Texas vs. Nation practice, showed below-average arm strength. Fairly accurate on short to medium routes. Indecisive and nervous under pressure. Adequate mobility. Checks down too often. Bad decisions and doesn’t read defenders well. Footwork looks good under center. Doesn’t place ball well on short touch passes. Very much like Curtis Painter on the Colts, and will battle him and Willy for last spot on team.
  3. Thaddeus Lewis: Rams, UDFA. Duke: Short, but has good bulk. In Texas vs. Nation practice, showed OK arm strength. Mechanics are very inconsistent, leading to inaccuracy at all levels. Forces ball when under pressure. In game, fairly accurate short. Fumbled. Good touch. Not likely to make Rams or any other NFL team.
  4. Isaiah “Juice” Williams: Bears, FA Tryout. Ill.: Slightly below-average height, but good bulk and speed for the position. Not likely to make team behind Cutler, Hanie, and LeFevour.
    1. Todd Reesing: Kan.: Measures at 5’10” tall. In Shrine Game practices, worked well outside pocket, but lacks size to be effective within pocket. Sets up well in pocket, though. Sub-par arm. Fairly accurate on run. Hesitant decision making. Deep ball floats too much. When on run, doesn’t keep eyes open for receiver. Very athletic and hard to catch. Sidearm delivery at times. Good play fakes.
  5. Tyler Sheehan: Texans, UDFA. Bowling Green: Average size. Lots of short hops during bowl game. Several bad decisions when pressured, but did well in the clutch. Stares down receivers. Inaccurate on the move and the pocket. Nice touch. Average windup. Steps into throws. Will compete with Booty for 3rd QB position, but probably won’t make it.
  6. Tim Buckley: Falcons, UDFA. Alcorn St.: Good arm and touch. Great speed. Average decision-making skills. Slow setup and delivery and a little inaccurate. Should compete with Shockley and Ward for 4th QB or practice-squad position. Could have a future on right team.
  7. AJ McKenna: Saints, UDFA. Albany St.: Good speed and great size. Good on the run. Productive at ECB, but showed poor pocket presence at HBCU Senior Bowl. 2009 SIAC MVP. Likely just a warm body for training camp, but may compete with Daniel for last QB spot. Likely cut.
  8. Greg Paulus: Saints, FA Tryout. Syracuse: Slightly below-average size. Average speed and athleticism. Starter in 2009 after transferring from Duke after graduation. Said to need work on reading defenses.
  9. Dennis Brown: Norfolk St.: Great size and speed. Good zip on throws. Good pocket presence — senses the rush and makes correct adjustments. Slow setup and long windup. Not very accurate.

  15. Andrew Schmitt: Lions, FA Tryout. E. Mich.:
  16. Riley Skinner: Giants, UDFA. Wake Forest: Below-average height, athleticism and quickness, but has adequate bulk. Reportedly has good accuracy and decision making. Competing for practice-squad spot or potentially to replace Bomar as #3..
  17. Noah Shepard: Packers, UDFA. S. Dak.: Good size. Excellent upper-body strength. May beat Pizzotti as 3rd QB, but behind Rodgers and Flynn, not much of a future in Green Bay.
