Default QB Collin Klein, why no NFL hype?

I've only seen him play twice this year...don't know too much about him, looks like he is also a TE or started as one before playing QB

height: 6'5" (perfect)
weight: 226 lbs

so my first thought is that I guess he is like Tebow, where he is a great runner but a horrible passer...but the numbers suggest that is WRONG

right now Klein is 117 for 165...a comp% of 70.9%...which is amazing

to put that into perspective, Andrew Luck had a 71.3% comp% last year...they are about the exact same...


so why is this guy no where to be found on mocks?...why on college QB prospect lists is he found near the bottom?

great height/size
looks like he is a very accurate thrower
he can RUN TOO!

I am not seeing the flaws here...

8 games and 165 total passes...... they rely very little on his ability to throw the ball.....he plays in an offense that is hard to evaluate just how good a QB prospect he is, makes very few throws from within the pocket on a 5 step, 7 step drop.

He's a developmental NFL QB prospect if he even stays there.

Default Re: QB Collin Klein, why no NFL hype?

He's basically the prototypical athletic college QB who's just not a NFL QB. How many times have we've seen this before?? But that being said I'm sure he'll make his way onto a NFL roster and I'm sure a team will find use of his abilities in a wildcat/gadget type of formation and possibly convert him to a different position.

Default Re: QB Collin Klein, why no NFL hype?

Luck had nearly 80 more pass attempts 8 games into his last season at Stanford. He averaged 30.3 pass attempts per game compared to 20.6 pass attempts per game for Klein this year. Don't get me wrong, the 70% completion rate is impressive, but trying to pass his 70% off as being equal to Luck's is just silly.

And I'm not even implying Klein's comp% would take a big hit if he started attempting 10 more passes a game, but it's not really the same thing. He's a great college QB, but I'm not sure he's an NFL QB.

so he isn't a good prospect because he can't throw well?

Tebow's college passing stats dwarf Kleins. Guy has thrown 465 college passes, completing 62%, 26 TD 8 INT

Tebow completed almost 200 more than Klein has attempted, 66%, 88 TD 16 INT

I'm sure the small sample size, wierd throwing motion and specialty offense has NFL guys spooked.

It's a QB starved league and he'll certainly get a shot. Hell, they're willing to pretend Jake Locker is an NFL QB. But I would expect the Tebow experiment has them a bit gun shy.

you're comparing entire years of Tebow to a half season of Klein...Klien's comp% is higher, and his current passer rating is higher than Tebow's ever was

No, those are Collin Kleins career passing numbers:

200-465, 62.4 %, 26 TD's, 8 INT's.

Those are his numbers for his whole career, not half of a season.

okay, it is still comparing a small amount of playing time to a large amount...

IMO the only numbers that should really be looked at are this year's

but from what I have been reading it will be LATE LATE LATE

that is why I made this thread, it is rare I think to have a Heisman winner being damn near passed up in the draft...



here is Walter's top QB prospect list:

Klien at #15...list his arm strength and mechanics as the problem, and state will likely never be an NFL starter
