2011: Enters his senior season among the nation's FCS quarterbacks with the best NFL Draft potential... His strong, accurate arm and his mobility are his biggest strengths... Was picked as one six NFL Draft sleepers entering the 2011 college football season by The Sporting News.

2010: Started Richmond's first five games before suffering a season-ending knee injury on the first series at New Hampshire (October 9)... Completed 67 passes for 645 yards and three touchdowns in the four full games before his injury... Showed his mobility in and out of the pocket by rushing 19 times for 87 yards... Opened his Richmond career with 183 yards on 18-for-32 passing at Virginia... In the Spiders' home-opener versus Elon, Corp was 19-for-32 passing for 207 yards and a TD... His five-yard TD pass to Kevin Grayson versus Elon tied the game at 7-7 and was Richmond's first-ever score at Robins Stadium... In the Coastal Carolina win, Corp connected with WR Ben Edwards for a 47-yard TD pass as the Spiders' opened up a 27-6 lead in the second quarter en route to a 41-19 win.

2009 at USC: Corp, USC's most mobile quarterback, emerged as the starter as a sophomore in 2009 following a consistent, productive showing in 2009 spring practice. But he cracked the top of his left fibula in 2009 fall camp, which allowed Matt Barkley to win the starting job. Corp then served as a backup the rest of the season, although he started at Washington when Barkley was injured. Overall in 2009 while appearing in 3 games (San Jose State, Washington, Washington State), he was 17-of-26 (65.4%) for 155 yards with 1 TD and 1 interception. He came off the bench to complete all 4 of his passes for 45 yards with a TD (13 yards) against San Jose State. He completed 13-of-22 passes for 110 yards with an interception at Washington in his first career start. He played the final 2 series against Washington State, but did not throw a pass.

Aaron Corp Richmond 6-3 205
Aaron Corp (http://www.mockingthedraft.com/2011/11/2/2531899/wednesday-nfl-draft-links-to-click#) has shown enough ability as the University of Richmond's quarterback to keep the interest of NFL scouts who became aware of him as a Parade All-American and a USC signee. Inconsistency as a Spider, however, may cost him a spot in the 2012 draft, according to one scout.

Inconsistency and apparently the legs of FDR.

Legs of FDR? He was, from what I read, more mobile than Matt Barkley while at USC. I never cared much for Barkley's arm, but I do like his mobility in the pocket quite a bit. If Corp is more mobile than Barkley- sounds like a good endorsement to me.

Thx for posting. At first glance his arm strength would give me pause for concern. Looks like he has some tools to work with. FA type, maybe a 7th rd pick.

Looks like a Kellen Moore, Scott Tolzien type who has the smarts and leadership quality, moves the chains but lacks the throwing arm.

Could be his throwing style, which is quick enough but looks like he's "pushing" the ball. Might be fixable. Certainly not much zip and has a wobbly trajectory.

Agreed, and I liked Tolzien but for the arm strength issue. There's almost no getting around it imo- you have to have very good arm strength to make it as a QB in the NFL. There are always exceptions, but it's one of the great weed outs- Tolzien stuck with the 49r's, but his arm strenght imo led to him being undrafted. Still, I like Tolzien's arm better than this kid.

Worth a look especially in the 7th or later. FWIW: Rarely does a FCS school have the budget for a proper strength and nutrition program. The arm strength or lack of does NOT concern me as much the leg injury.

Interesting kid.

Two leg injuries back to back years is a problem for me. Can he run? Sure, but if he keeps breaking legs and tearing up knees that will come to a complete stop. Greg Oden comes to mind. Highly talented, can't stay on the field, which in turn hurts consistency.

He's worth a look as a UDFA, but I remember watching him play UW when he was with SC, didn't really impress me at all.

He spent three years at USC(more than half of college), which I'm pretty sure has the budget for a proper strength and nutrition program. The arm strength has never been there.

I can't believe a threat on Aaron Corp made it to the second page.

I think B.J. Coleman and Bo Levi Mitchell are both better NFL prospects than Aaron Corp, and those two are on the bottom of the totem pole. The cut-off point for QB's who can legitimately play in the NFL and are worthy developmental prospects ends with Coleman and Mitchell in my opinion.

Aaron Corp is in a group of QB's that includes Kellen Moore, Case Keenum, etc. that I don't even view at priority UDFA's.

I started the thread after reading that he was strongly challenging or actually beat out Martt Barkley at USC before a leg injury took him down. I saw him throw in a clip provided in one of the thread posts- not impressed.

He beat out Matt Barkley in spring practices of Barkley's first semester of college (he enrolled Spring). More accurately, he beat out Mitch Mustain. There was no chance in hell Barkley was going to be named started during the spring. Who knows what would have happened during the Fall if Corp didn't get hurt. Based on his awful performance against Washington the third game of the season, I think Barkley would have overtaken him pretty early on either way.

What surprised me from the clip was the arm, or lack thereof. Combin that with the previous leg injuries- definite pass, wouldn't even bring him in as a FA.

Part of the issue to me is a guy that hasn't put together a great career in college better bring something to the table. Either right size, speed, arm strength, or accuracy. Something to build from. I'd go with a guy like Coleman if I were going to take a flyer. I mean if you're going to consider Corp then you may as well consider Darron Thomas.

Completely agree. At least Darron Thomas has a little physical talent and put together a resume in college. Aaron Corp has neither.

Barrett Trotter has about the same resume as Corp, but a bigger arm. Austin Davis has slightly better physical tools than Corp, and comes with a much better resume.

If you're going to consider Aaron Corp, you might as well be considering all these guys I mentioned... along with Dan Persa and Patrick Witt (Yale).

Aaron Corp would be a GREAT waterboy. Besides that, I want nothing to do with him on the Dolphins.

Got to see him here at USC. Arm has never been real great. Never saw him make wow throws, but he's a solid player. He has more mobility than Matt Barkley, but you're also comparing two different things with the two. I'd say Corp has mobility while Barkley has pocket presence and just enough to keep him from taking sacks. The fact that USC moves Barkley out of the pockets on rollouts is just to utilize Barkley's ability to throw on the run, plus the weapons he gets in the flat (Woods, Lee, Ellison).

If this kid wasnt so highly recruited out of high school, no one would even consider this guy. I think the same goes for BJ Coleman. kid has size and a right arm (But so did Hunter Cantwell), that doesnt mean he's draft worthy, Coleman hardly has college experience and its at a no name small community college

cant stand his throwing mechanics.
