Greg Cosell did brief piece on Quinn and Russell.
A few interesting things he noted:

His biggest problem with Quinn is his consistency with accuracy. In all the film he has watched -the guy puts even Zach Thomas to shame- it is the one thing that troubles him most. He doesn't feel Quinn is a top 5 pick.

Russell-Can make all the throws, very athletic, the usual. A little bothered by his weight. He noted that one of the biggest misperceptions of this year's draft -'draft myths'- is the notion out there that somehow Quinn and Weis' offense was more complicated than LSU's. Many of Quinn's supporters suggest he is a more cerebral player than Russell.

CJ and Peterson are the most polished offensive players.

I think one of them also mentioned that Russell's weight was up as well. I think it was Pat Kirwin that mentioned that Russell could be a 300 QB. Not quite what I'd like to see in a QB

As far as the offense Russell ran, I have heard reports that they adjusted the offense to have more outside the hash throws to take advantage of his arm strength and because he struggled with the misdirection and the timed throws, and threading the ball into the tight spaces found inside the field. I think it was earlier today or yesterday I read that, and I can't friggin remember where now dammit.

Careful, I citied one time that Russell was reported to be around 300lbs at one point and got called a "liar" and accused of making it up "as a smear campaign" against him, when I was just reporting on what I had heard.

Closes (http://Closes) thing to a 300 pund QB.

:D Made me chuckle when I saw the Giants use him on some 4th down and inches. That guy is a beast! He could probably play NT for us, lol.
