We here at Universal Draft have become somewhat fans of QB Brandon Weeden of Oklahoma State, mostly because the player we see on the tape continues to go unrecognized within the Draft media. Brandon is a 27 year old redshirt junior who has finished his degree and could declare early. With the shocking news that QB Andrew Luck of Stanford has decided to stay in school, I believe Brandon Weeden may be the only 'complete' quarterback that could enter the 2011 NFL Draft. His combination of arm strength, accuracy, and understanding of how to use touch and ball placement are second to none. He combines that with a natural feel for pressure and the ability to slide away from it while still keeping his eyes upfield and finishing by using that God-given right arm of his to get the ball where it needs to be. All indications are he has a nice, grounded personality, and it shows on the football field. He has had a number of games where defenses have been able to confuse and pressure him into mistakes early, but his even-keeled persona has allowed him to settle in, make a bad day into a good day, and not allow the blowout to take shape. His understanding of defenses, mastery of his own offense, and eye discipline were all problematic early in the year, his first year starting, but the growth trajectory for all of the above was on a steep incline as Dana Holgorsen shared that he has never had experience with a quarterback that from the first game to the last made as much improvement as Weeden. That steep growth trajectory is a good sign of coachability at the next level. We believe that if Weeden were 5 years younger, he would be discussed as the potential #1 overall pick. However, the age and injury history to his throwing shoulder have to be accounted for, as does the relative inexperience.
