Combine Results

40-YARD DASH: 4.78 seconds

VERTICAL JUMP: 32.5 inches

BROAD JUMP: 113.0 inches

3-CONE DRILL: 6.90 second

Pros

  • NFL size
  • Competitive
  • Never gives up
  • Played in a Pro-Style attack
  • Intelligent kid
  • Mobility is decent, but nothing special. However, he isn’t afraid to run with it.
  • Makes ugly winning plays, but rather win ugly than lose pretty
  • Managed an offense
  • Accurate on short yardage throws

Cons

  • No technique
  • No footwork
  • Focuses on top target
  • Doesn’t move defenders with his eyes
  • Doesn’t have a clean release
  • Doesn’t reset for throws
  • Doesn’t have an NFL arm
  • Bad at reading defenses
  • Slow through progressions
  • Panics when faced with pressure
  • Doesn't stay composed
  • Awful pocket awareness
  • Can’t hit deep throws
  • Doesn’t understand touch and velocity. Even if he did, he doesn’t have the arm strength to execute consistently
  • Drops his eyes before pressure is actually there

Overall Thoughts

Hogan has the body of an NFL quarterback, but none of the talent or tools of an NFL quarterback. Even to get Hogan to be an adequate backup would take years of work, which means most teams won’t be willing to risk a draft pick on him.

There is a very low ceiling for Hogan, and very small chance he gets close to hitting it. There just isn't anything to like about him, except his luck at winning ugly, which won’t translate into the NFL level of play.

Broncos Round Projection: Undrafted

Where He Goes: Round 6- round 7

Per sources, the weak quarterback draft class will see Hogan drafted and that will be because some coach will love his intelligence and pound the table for him. Most scouts want nothing to do with Hogan, due to there being little-to-no tools to work with.
