Prospect Profile: Bruce Eugene


Full Name: Bruce Eugene School: Grambling Pos: QB

Ht: 6-0.5 Wt: 260 40: 5.12 Year: 5Sr

Bio: S.W.A.C. Offensive Player of the Year as a redshirt senior after totaling 56.1%/4,408/50/6. Missed the '04 season after tearing a knee ligament. Threw for 49.5%/4,485/43/16 as a true junior.

Pos: Short, stout passer with a big-league arm. Throws bullets down the field, zips the outs and loses nothing passing on the move. Withstands the rush and tough to bring down as a ball carrier. Throws the occasional beautiful pass down the field, putting air under the ball and letting receivers run to it.

Neg: Changes his point of release and has a poor throwing motion. Stares down the primary target and is not averse to forcing the pass into coverage. Stats are over-inflated due to the system at Grambling.

Analysis: Very much a product of the system, Eugene offers solid physical skills yet needs a lot of work from the ground up. Practice squad material.
