Summary: Hummel battled through two horrific knee injuries to have a terrific senior season with the Boilermakers. He is by no means a typical NBA athlete, but his work ethic, heart, ability to shoot the ball and intangibles could land him a spot in the second round.
Player Comparison: Luke Babbit.
Babbit is a skilled forward who can shoot the ball from the outside, but his lack of athleticism has held him back in the NBA. Hummel figures to go through a similar struggle in transitioning to the next level.
I can't imagine the Pats trading JG for anything less than a 1st round pick. We're talking about a potential starting/franchise QB here who is game ready, looked great when he had the chance to play. He is probably a better prospect than any QB in this draft class. Given the fact that Brady is 39 and nobody knows for sure how many more years he decides to play, the Pats may want to hang onto him for at least another season while he's still under contract. I can't see the Pats giving him up cheap and I can see teams in need of a QB giving up a mid-late 1st round pick. Considering what some teams have given up just to move up a few spots in the draft for a QB, a 1st round pick seems pretty reasonable.
