Kevin Hogan finished his career at Stanford completing 727 of 1,103 passes (65.9%) for 9,385 yards, (8.5 YPC), 75 TDs and 29 INTs for a passer rating of 154.6. He added and additional 1,249 yards on 315 attempts (4.0 YPC) and 15 TDs with his legs. He has plenty of experience in a Pro Style offense which to me, is more important to me than gaudy numbers out of a spread offense which can be deceiving when evaluating college QBs. Coming from a Pro Style offense, a QB is much more NFL ready.
- Kevin Hogan has the prototypical size and length scouts look for and arm strength is not an issue: he has a Howitzer… High Football IQ… Excellent leadership ability and work ethic… Shows a good command of the offense… Excellent pocket awareness, poise, and toughness… Will step up to make the throw knowing he is going to get hit…
- Shows the ability to play outside the pocket while on the move… Does a nice job of sliding in the pocket to buy time… Shows the ability and willingness to make plays with his legs… Able to make all the throws… Makes throws in to tight windows with good anticipation… Has shown he can play out of the shotgun or under center… Above avg accuracy… His ability to throw with touch from a solid base is impressive… Excellent escape ability… Has the arm strength and velocity to spread a defense…
- Kevin Hogan has a peculiar throwing motion that I would like to see improved… He appears stiff in the legs and his footwork needs to be smoother… Needs to improve his accuracy on deep balls (at his best when he can set up a clean base and has the time to load up the ball) Get’s rattled when contained and under heavy pressure at times and tries to force a ball in to tight coverage off of his back foot… If his feet get disrupted it can cause him to err…
Overall Kevin Hogan has all of the intangibles I look for in an NFL QB. I like him better than Goff because of his experience in a Pro Style offense and he has a more muscular build which leads me to believe he will be more durable…
Kevin Hogan has experience in big games and played well in the Rose Bowl. He may never be a Tom Brady, but I believe he can develop in to a solid NFL QB. Hogan won more games at Stanford than Andrew Luck despite having a worse offensive line. He has shown me that he can play under pressure and has the poise to get the job done. I don’t think the Cowboys need to draft a QB this year, but they probably will. If that is the case, acquiring Hogan in the 4th or 5th round could prove to be the best value in the 2016 NFL draft. In my mind, Hogan is as much of a sleeper as Kurt Cousins was. NFL Comparison: Phillip Rivers
