    Actually as far as facial looks and body go, I think he looks almost like a young Dan Marino - playing like Marino is another thing...

    It's overly simplistic, but the fact Brohm, Henne and Booty are all under 6'3'' reduces their chances of developing into quality NFL Qbs. it's very hard to play NFL QB at that height and be successful as a pocket passer.

    Obviously there are exceptions such as Romo, McNabb, Garcia. But those players are famous for their mobility in the pocket. That mobility allows them to find throwing lanes.

    The only quality pocket passer I can think of under 6'3'' is Brees, and he is basically a "football genius".

    If I had to rank the Qb prospects, I would have them

    1. Ryan
    2. Ainge
    3. Flacco/O'Connell (longterm prospects)
    4. Woodson
    5. Brohm/Henne

    What about Doug Flutie, who's not much bigger than Wes Welker?

    On the one hand, Ainge is Danny Ainge's son, which would be kinda cool. OTOH, he did go to Tennessee (as a UConn fan, and an anti-Quarterhick, I have plenty of reason to think the Vols are teh suck). . . .

    But if Belioli can stomach having him, I guess I can learn to do the same. . . . :)

    Flutie was never a pocket passer. He was a scrambler, like a Garcia, only more so.

    Slight correction, he is Danny Ainge's nephew.

    Hey, it's closer than Antonio Cromartie and Dominique Rodgers, so that's OK (I misread Wikipedia). :)
