  • Colt Brennan Comparison

    I finally figured out who Colt Brennan reminds me of.

    Well im on the Brennan band wagon, but not sure if he's top 5 just yet.
    BTW, were Kolb and Beck system QB's too? I know they came from school famous for system QB's but didnt know if the two schools were still cranking out system Qb's. I like to use those to as examples. If system QB's can be 2nd rounders, than why cant Brennan be a first? \

      John Beck and Kevin Kolb are both alumni from pass happy systems. But, both are winners and both displayed great mechanics and put up a good show at the draft. During the off-season many coaches got a glimpse of what type of QB both are by isolating them in real type offenses they will run in the NFL. That's why both went in the second round. Colt Brennan is just like the two. He's stuck in the pass happy system and will be questioned on his adjustment to a more pro style offense. I think he has the tools to be a first round draft pick. He's certainly too good to pass up on if the team is looking for a QB.

        I really think Colt Brennan has more to gain or lose at the Senior Bowl than any other prospect. As I've mentioned before I am really hoping he decides to play in the game because I know I'd love to see him in a different system for a week.

          I suppose I'm the only one who sees Alex Smith in Brennan.
          The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

            Rivers efficency numbers at NC State were pretty crazy, I remember he was also called a system QB for almost his entire college career and wasn't projected anywhere near the 1st to begin with because of the stigma. How much did he actaully improve his stock at the senior bowl? I can remember him kind of being mentioned as a 2nd day type guy.

            In short, good initial comparison for now.

              There is no real good comparison out there, imo, but Rivers is about as so so as any. Rivers' numbers and delivery may be similar, but that's all. Alex Smith is a pretty decent. Brennan has good escape ability and when he runs, he'll try to juke guys out or do whatever to get the extra yard even if it risks injury. I don't know if he'll continue to do that with more on the line this year, but we'll see. Additionally, he's got crazy accuracy while on the run.

                I see a little bit of a younger Gannon in Brennan to be honest.

                  That's a very good comparison, Scott. I like it.

                      Colt Brennan and Alex Smith ran two different types of offenses. But as far as mechanics go I think they are really similar.

                      Scott, you hit it right on the nail. That's what I was talking about when I said it will be good for him to be isolated away from Hawaii's offensive system. The Senior Bowl week would be the perfect spotlight for him to display his skills in pro style offenses.

                        no, jay has a much better arm, and slightly better mechanics. The rivers comparison is nice, both have that side motion, rivers was far worse in college though.

                          For anyone who does actually plan on following Colt this year, June Jones has said Colt will be taking more snaps from Center. I'll be interested to see how much he actually does.

                            ill say around 5-7, and that might be a little too many, but if he's serious, then it should be around that much
