Kevin Hogan (6-foot-4, 220 pounds) — Stanford

Kevin Hogan certainly looks the part of the NFL quarterback. He has broad shoulders and a well-built frame to handle the pounding of professional football.

He has an elongated wind-up to his throwing, which worries some scouts, but he has good instincts, accuracy and velocity to make up for that.

For the season, Hogan threw for 2,644 yards with 24 touchdowns against 7 interceptions. He completed 69 percent of his passes. For his career, he’s thrown for 9,162 yards with 72 touchdowns and 28 interceptions. He has completed 66 percent of his passes.

Hogan has a rifle arm. When he is able to step into his throw, he can sling it hard. The good thing about him is that he also has a good touch on his throws, so he is able to throw the deep ball with good accuracy.

When under pressure, Hogan exhibits good poise, steps up in the pocket, and shows quick decision-making ability with either the run or pass. He worked on his throwing on the run, and showed marked improvement there and on his throws against the grain.

Stanford runs a pro-style offense, so that gives Hogan an advantage going into the NFL.

Pro scouts really hate Hogan’s delivery, but his play this season has really opened some of their eyes. He is getting more looks due to his success, and his play in the pre-draft activities ay cause his stock to skyrocket.
