    Kevin Kolb

    Strengths:
    Kolb has good size and build for a NFL quarterback and excels at throwing short to mid-range passes. He can throw the ball on the move and is a threat to run with the ball if necessary. Kolb is a great leader and has started for four years at Houston. He would be an ideal West Coast quarterback once he learned the system.
    Weaknesses:
    Kolb did not play in a pro style offense at Houston and would have to learn the NFL style of progression and reads. He is unlikely to become an elite vertical passer. He must work on improving his mechanics, as he has a tendency to wind up too much. Kolb has as tendency to go to a three quarters delivery that causes the ball to get batted down at the line of scrimmage.
    Overall:
    Kolb was productive at Houston, but that was in a shotgun based, short throwing offense. He would have to take the time to learn the pro style offense, and his lack of arm strength will limit his ceiling. The question on Kolb will be if his success was due to the system or if he can mature into a solid NFL starter.

    if the only negative they can find is his deep ball then I have no problem with him. deep balls don't make or break a QB, they question the offense he was in but they do that with most QBs

    I too am really high on Kolb. He has a laser delivery on his passes, even if they are only midrange, and he sees the field extremely well. I think that he could transition into a fantastic starter with some tweaks to his game.

    Has good size with adequate muscle definition, losing more than 10 pounds of "baby fat" in the last year to improve his agility rolling out of the pocket…Mobile passer with the nimble feet to make all of his throws when rolling out of the pocket… Short strider who has the change of direction agility to sidestep the initial tackler, doing an effective job of throwing from either of the outside hashes…Loves the challenge in pressure situations and remains cool in the backfield, despite numerous protection breakdowns (was sacked 33 times in 2006, but fumbled only once), as he is also very conscious of protecting the ball to prevent the costly fumble…Makes good on-field adjustments and check on the pre-snap and is alert to zone coverages…Worked hard with the team's new strength coach before the 2006 season and the trimmed frame and added strength allowed him to stand tall in the pocket…Puts nice touch and velocity on his short-to-intermediate throws…Displays good arm strength and accuracy on sideline, screens, slants and crossing routes…Has enough foot speed and balance to be a threat running with the ball and shows good body control in his pass set-up…Can slide and avoid, doing a nice job of escaping pressure and creating when on the move…Does whatever he can to stay alive in the pocket, as he picks up defensive schemes quickly and has no problems taking plays from the chalkboard to the field…Best when making calls at the line of scrimmage, as he does a very good job of scanning the field…Can pull the ball down and make something out of a broken play with his feet and is accurate throwing on the move…Has adequate quickness dropping back from center to his pass-set point and is able to get good depth due to his fine balance and quick feet…. The thing you see on 2006 film is that he now does a much better job of setting his feet and stepping into his throws than in past seasons…The ball comes off Kolb's hand with average zip and good touch, as he knows how to step towards his target and maintain balance following through with his passes...When he uses a three-quarter release and steps into his throws, his release is much more compact and natural…Throws a tight spiral that receivers don't have to come back on when operating in tight spaces…Throws the long ball with adequate touch and accuracy, zips the posts and even when he passes off his back foot, he is still able to generate good velocity…Patient sitting in the pocket and scanning the field, locating his secondary targets with good efficiency…Shows better accuracy with underneath tosses than on long throws, but does an effective job of keeping the receiver in his route progression without having to break stride…Puts good air behind the short fade routes, knowing when to take something off those throws…Can zip the pass into tight coverage away from the defender, demonstrating good placement and has the awareness and ability to slide in the pocket and continue to scan down field…Knows where all of his targets are and will throw the ball away rather than force the issue when all are covered…Does a good job of squaring his shoulders and driving with his legs to break tackles when forced to run with the ball…Has the vision to pick his spots to run to and is quick to slide and avoid being punished when the defender closes on his rushing attempt…Self-starter who has been a great program player and unquestioned leader ever since first stepping into the huddle as a freshman…Vocal leader, but not the type who appears arrogant, like some quarterbacks tend to be.

    If we can't get Quinn, Kolb should be our guy, #40

    If I remember correctly, Boomer previously mentioned that Kolb was our 3rd pick at QB (Quinn and Russell the top 2)

    well gentlemen i must concur with your assessment of kevin kolb and i am on board the bandwagon and in al honesty we should consider taking lb patrick willis and then wr davis and then get qb kolb this will allow us to get a qb and oline in the later rounds.

    As long as either kolb, beck or stanton are available at#40 I'll be happy. Get either Quinn, Levi brown or Staley at #9 and then either QB or another OL guy at #40 then pick BPA WITH the rest of the picks

    As much as I have preferences between these players, I agree with you. I would say BPA for needs that we have the rest of the way since we have PLENTY of holes to fill.
