Brandon Weeden - Potential Late Round QB
I really want to take a late flyer on Brandon Weeden from Oklahoma St. He's a QB that reminds me of a raw Brady.
He seems Brady-esque in the way he drops back, holds the ball, and throws the ball. He's got some good poise in the pocket. He's got good mechanics and a nice release. He's got some good zip on his ball, and excels in the short to intermediate passing game. He's got some great accuracy and touch on a lot his throws. Like Brady, he's a little inconsistent when it comes to throwing the deep ball, but I've been very impressed with his skill set overall and think he is someone we can develop.
I watched a good amount of Oklahoma St. games because I'm a big fan of Mike Gundy and a lot of his players (Weeden, Blackmon, Hunter, Cooper). He really improved and got better as the year went on. He went from being a guy I felt meh about to being a guy I want us to take a good look at over the course of the season.
Here are two excellent videos of him from the guys at Universal Draft.
