    My pick for a developmental QB. Hopefully next year at this time we can get a first day pick for Cassell, and we'll need someone to come in and take over. Here's what an Indinapolis-based scout says:

    Rowe stands out among college quarterbacks for one reason — he never seems to force the ball into coverage. Oh, he’ll make some tough throws and ignore his short and intermediate targets looking for the long-gainer, but you rarely ever see him put one up there that makes you think “oh, I’ll bet he wants that one back.” Rowe has a big-time arm and good accuracy, but that’s not really what makes him special. He reads coverages well and understands blitz packages like a defensive coordinator. Although he doesn’t exactly have a halfback’s running ability, he can buy time with his feet and, better yet, stand up in the face of the rush and and deliver. He’s not a threat to take off on third down, but is hard to stop on short-yardage. Colts fans will appreciate how well he fakes on play-action....

    The workout numbers: Age 23 Height 6' 5 1/4" Weight 226
    40 time 4.91 Vertical Jump 31.5 Short Shuttle 4.15 Broad Jump 906 Three Cone 6.72

    Offensive MVP of the East-West Shrine Game.

    I keep slipping Rowe into my mocks too, but this note from condraft.com does make me a little uneasy:

    "Intangibles are not really there. A little goofy."

    Goofy? Have you ever seen a description like that in a draft profile? What are we supposed to make of that?

    Good grief, the kid plays in Reno, some of that cross border air is bound to affect him.
