Aaron Rodgers School: California
Ht: 6-2 Wt: 223 40: 4.77 Year: 3Jr
Bio: Junior college transfer who made a major
mark on the Cal program the past two seasons.
All-Conference selection as a senior after posting
66.1%/2,566/24/8. Also added 247 yards
rushing with 3 additional scores. Junior quarterbacking
totals were 61.6%/2,903/19/5.
Athletic passer with the physical skills and mental
intangibles needed to lead a franchise at the
next level. Quickly sets up in the pocket, sells
ball fakes and technically very sound. Poised
under the rush, steps up to avoid defenders
and works to keep the play alive. Patient, buys
time in the pocket and waits for receivers to
come free. Does an excellent job with his reads
and natural looking off the safety. Does not
make mental errors and throws the ball away
rather than toss the errant pass. Times the
short and intermediate throws well, as receivers
rarely wait for the ball out of their breaks.
Outstanding vision and immediately spots the
open receiver. Possesses a quick release, live
arm and zips the outs or gets the ball downfield.
Throws with touch. Sits in the pocket
and takes a big hit in order to get the pass off.
Fleet-footed and picks up yardage with his legs
Negatives: Though accurate, lacks
top pass placement and has receivers extending
vertically to pull the ball out of the air. Must
improve his accuracy down the field. Lacks top
footwork releasing the ball off a three step drop.
Lacks pocket stature.
Analysis: A physically
gifted passer with a great understanding of the
position, Rodgers has made himself one of the
nation's top quarterback prospects the past two
seasons. May not fit every system, but should
quickly flourish in the NFL for a timing offense
that does not throw the ball down the field with
regularity. Offers a good amount of upside and
is a coachable player who should continually
improve his game.
