Height|Weight: 6-4  218

College: Stanford

Grade: 79.8

Round: 5

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.

Film Study:

  • 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

    If you want Hogan, chances are you will have to take him with your 4th round comp pick.

  • gcarr1213 I don’t want the Cowboys to draft a QB period. I would roll with Moore, but knowing how they think, they probably will. If that is the case, I don’t want it to happen before the 4th or 5th round. There are more glaring needs at the moment such as CB, DT, MLB and S. This is the wrong time and the wrong class to get a QB.If the Cowboys draft a QB in the top 3 rounds, or something foolish like a TE or WR I am washing my hands of this team. I have been loyal for over 40 years, but I have had enough mediocrity. The Patriots took over where Lamdry left off and I am sick of the way the Jones family has mismanaged this organization. I want to support winners not bumbling idiots.

    I say sign Trumaine Johnson CB Rams, Daryl Young FB Redskins, Lamar Miller RB Dolphins, Colt McCoy QB Redskins, and then sign Brandon Mebane DT Seahawks, and resign Mo (can’t cut or get rid of everyone). Mebane can play 1 or 3, best at 3, and then draft Reed in round 2. Would give Dallas relentless pass rush from the middle of the line, and offer excellent run defense as well. Mebane is currently 30 sign him for 2 years. Dallas could have well over 25 million in space, and would have enough to sign all these guys if they chose.

    I have no doubt on Hogan as a qb.  I seen him plenty here on the West coast.  Nice Article AL, I bet you he will climb in the Draft as Draft day come upon us

    I like Hogan RB a lot at Christian McCaffrey.  McCaffrey had a great year winning the AP Player of the year.  I believe this year they are several RB who are game changers in the draft.  I just hope we can get some of those player at different positions

    albeam17 gcarr1213 I really dont like NE but they are my team to take it all again.  In not the player that I like but more of the system they are develop under.  In NE you are going to see the last string Rb,WR, OL and CB getting  a shot to contribute in the games.  It doesn’t take 3 years to evaluate a player there.  In NE it isnt about making a splash in how they draft but more how the player fits the system and can help the team
