* Five years in college
* Pro System
* Nice mechanics
* Seems very mentally tough

I bet he has a nice NFL career eventually.

He's a nice player but he'll get broken like a toothpick in the NFL. His arm strength is average at best as well. I think he could be a nice backup but probably not a starter.

Tom Brady did not have a strong arm and was thin...just saying...High character kid too.

Brady wasn't listed at 202 lbs coming out of Michigan...and I really doubt Cousins is even that big. He looks 190-195 lbs at best.

I like Cousins as well, but he really needs to go somewhere that will let him sit for a couple of years. He needs to bulk up a bit. It's not out of question he could do this and add some arm strength as well, but he's going to have to be a hard worker.

Cousins is listed at 6'3 205lbs. Brady at the combine measured at 6'5 211lbs. Not a huge difference if Cousin measures at those numbers.

Like I said I doubt Cousins actually weighs that much. If he comes in at 205 at the combine he'll be racing to the bathroom to piss away all the water he drank before the weigh in.

Two inches makes a huge difference in two places. At the QB position and in the bedroom.

I LOL'd on that one.

As for Cousin's, i like him too. I would definitely take a flyer on him late in the draft if we don't get a QB early. I think he would make an excellent backup in the NFL and who knows, maybe a starter someday if all things fall into place (look at Matt Moore, also like the Brady referense). I do think he needs to put on some weight, but i think his arm is fine. He shows good poise, is a high character guy and throws a nice ball. My 2 issues with him are 1) throws the ball away very quickly at times, 2) throws some bad INTs, which i don't know if they are b/c of bad decision, accuracy or possibly on his WR.

What a huge week for him. I love the idea that he was in a pro system and a long time starter.

I loved his attitude and how compete in the face of adversity.
