    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.

    Interesting kid.
    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.

    If you are going to take a shot on a low tiered QB, I think Coleman gives you the best value.

    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).
