2010 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Jarrett Brown



Strengths:
  • Good height and outstanding bulk
  • Highly athletic with great speed
  • Throws a smooth ball - tight spiral
  • More accurate than you'd think
  • Great arm strength - throws with outstanding velocity
  • Puts nice touch on the ball when he has to
  • Comfortable throwing on the run
  • Very elusive in the pocket
  • Impressive physical skill set





    Weaknesses:
  • Release could be more compact - slight windup but nothing overly detrimental
  • Very shaky footwork
  • Lacks experience - one-year starter
  • Can't read coverage
  • Comes from zone-read spread offense
  • Inconsistent decision-maker
  • Lacks an understanding and maturity of the passing game
  • Raw prospect and needs a couple years of development

    Summary: Jarrett Brown is the ultimate developmental quarterback. He possesses the prototypical physical tools you want in a quarterback, but he lacks basic understandings of a pro-style system. In a quarterback class lacking depth, some team is going to draft Brown anywhere from the late second round to the early fourth round, and try to develop him into a starting quarterback. I think he is a third-round talent, but I wouldn't draft him as a franchise quarterback - he needs serious development on the bench.

    Player Comparison: Tarvaris Jackson. Jackson has been a developmental quarterback in Minnesota with elite physical gifts. I think Brown is more accurate, so his career could pan out differently than Jackson's.
