Default Jordan Rodgers

I'm just starting to delve into all the draft prospects, so I don't know much about this kid, but I'm trying to figure out why he's only graded as a 7th round/undrafted talent.

Can anyone tell me more about him? I know it's Aaron's little bro. Word is, he has a good arm and he's mobile. Put up some solid #'s for Vandy last year (60%, 15 TDs, only 5 ints) against SEC competition. So why is he graded so low?

During those 8 seasons, we've had several starting RBs, different starters on the o-line, different TEs and FBs and 2 different RB coaches. Only our o-line coach remained the same.

Sharing a bloodline doesn't = a good player.

Jordan Palmer's final season at UTEP:
282/429 65.7% 3,595 26 TDs 14 INTs.

I agree. Jordan's brother is terrible.


As to the OP: injury and size.

IMO, he looks ok on film. He holds the ball high already, can throw the out ok, good mobility, a good feel for line of scrimmage, and has good pocket presence and is not afraid to step up into the pocket to make his throw.

But seems to heave the long ball, which flutters. Also stares down his throws.

Decision making could be culprit. But have never watched him play a game personally to make that call.

But think arm strength is what weighs him down heavily in draft. Shoulder injury seems to be behind him.

Probably because he opted to stay in school, and isn't getting drafted this year. Oh yeah, and he got benched for a spell at Vandy during the season.
