Sporting news describes BYU's John Beck...
Although he doesn't have ideal height (6-2), Beck is a smart, decisive passer who sees the field well and can make all the throws.
reminds me of Drew Brees and he's 2 inches taller!

I like John Beck, think he would be a good developmental player if we don't draft one sooner.

But the Drew Brees comparisons need to stop. Any short quarterback is now compared to Brees and it really getting annoying.

It pains me to say anything positive about BYU but John Beck is the best QB to come from there in quite some time. He's not Steve Young or Jim McMahon but he's better than Steve Sarkisian.

BYU has a better track record for sending QB to the pros than say.... Notre Dame.

I think he's the 5th QB in this draft that someone has said "reminds me of Drew Brees"...interesting.

Quarterback Gibran Hamdan


And seeing how this guy is a future HOF Quarterback drafting one would be out of the question at this point.

the Beck comparison is valid

I don't blame people for making this comparison, because despite the Brees' success scouts will continue to marginalize guys for the wrong reasons

drafting a guy on the 2nd day who makes good decisions and has a decent arm could be a great thing

Edwards if any QB second day. However we shouldn't have any second day picks if things go right.

If you want a day 2 QB with upside look at Josh Swogger from Montana. From what I read of the reports from the Texas vs Nation game last week he was the most impressive QB with good zip on the ball and perfect arching bombs.

Do you know anything about it?

You realize Steve Young went there? He turned out okay.

thanks

I wasn't aware of a lot of Brees comparisons going on, but I believe that description sounds like both players. I'd be happy with getting him 2nd day if Quinn doesn't pan out.

As did Jim McMahon & Ty Detmer.

As for Beck I saw the AS game and a couple of other games and my opinion would be...NO!!! No pocket presence and as far as the quote for seeing the field...I never saw an instinctive aware guy...

S. Spurrier spotted Hamden at a Pro Day, he was basically an afterthought and Spurrier I believe got him in the 7th. He is an athletic guy that actually practiced at WR with both the Seahawks and Redskins. He apparently has a very good arm and is a good athlete. He is 6-5 or so, and was tearing up NFLE before he got hurt...broken ankle I believe.

Worth a shot anyway.

I think we all know the answer to that question...
