QB Jordan Rodgers, Vanderbilt

Jaguars, UDFA. Vanderbilt: Slightly below-average size. Average hand size. Brother of Aaron Rodgers.

Positives: Has pro-style experience. Athletic. Above-average quickness. Fair accuracy on the run. Has experience as a holder on FGs. Gets set up in pocket quickly. Keeps eyes downfield on the run. Good effort on runs. Good speed. Vocal leader who was consistently talking to his WRs in NFLPA Game practices. Will likely interview well.

Negatives: Below-average deep accuracy. Hesitant and double clutches often. Below-average ball security under pressure and holds ball too loosely. Below-average velocity. Below-average accuracy on timing routes. Threw two INTs to LBs on short routes in 2011 bowl game. Often overthrows. Below-average arm. Doesn’t step into throws. Consistently poor decisions and mechanics on run. Deep passes float on him. Eyeballs receivers. Needs to learn when to throw ball away.

Projection: He will battle Matt Scott for the third QB spot in Jacksonville, but will probably lose out. Should stick on some team’s practice squad, though, but he doesn’t have the talent to be anything more than a career backup. No need to draft.
