Kevin Hogan QB Stanford #8
[divider top=”0″ style=”solid”][level-scouting-reports]
Strengths: Prototypical size and strength. Underrated athlete who can make some plays with his feet and will lower his shoulder for extra yards – similar athleticism to Andrew Luck. Smart quarterback who consistenty makes good decisions. Praised by coaches for work ethic and leadership.
Weaknesses: Has a Tebow-like throwing motion. Winds up when he throws which cuts down on his ability to release the ball quickly and also affects his accuracy when he’s pressured, as it can alter his motion. Decent arm strength, but it appears to require maximum effort. Doesn’t have the flick-of-the-wrist power to propel the ball downfield. Accuracy is shaky, especially on downfield and anticipation throws.
Overview: Hogan looks the part and has the basic raw tools, but he still needs a ton of work before he’s ready for the NFL. He can handle the mental demands of quarterbacking, but his fundamentals are lacking and it hurts his accuracy. Unless he refines his mechanics to speed up his release, he will struggle at the next level.
