2005 NFL Draft BQB's

Shane Boyd
Ht/Wt: 6-4 265, Age: 23
College: Kentucky

BQB_SITE's View:
He is a “Developmental Type” QB that needs to get snaps to improve. He needs to play in NFL Europe, AFL, or CFL to learn the position, because he did not start until late in his career at Kentucky. He has the size and arm strength of McNair, but he was very erratic in college. He was stuck behind Jared Lorenzen and playing baseball in the spring hurt him in his development. He has an extremely strong arm (Relief Pitcher) and can move for a “Big” man. Runs with good power for a quarterback, possesses excellent bulk for a quarterback and flashes the ability to break tackles. May be asked to lined up at receiver or running back, which he has experience doing in college. Has good versatility and can be used on Special Teams.
Strengths: Great Size, Mobile, Strong arm, and Team Player (Other Positions).
Weaknesses: Turnovers, Needs to Spread Ball Around, and Needs to Learn How to Slide or Get Out of Bounds When Running.





Jason Campbell
Ht/Wt: 6-4/225, Age: 23
College: Auburn

BQB_SITE's View:
Campbell is a very athletic quarterback and is a quick learner, as was shown by his ability to learn from four different offensive coordinators during his four seasons with the Tigers. Campbell was a major reason why Auburn went undefeated in the 2004 season and contended for a national championship. Campbell is a very experienced quarterback playing in 46 games and starting 39 of them. He finished his career completing 64.6% of his passes for 7,299 yards, 45 touchdowns and only 24 interceptions. Campbell was also an effective runner from the quarterback positions, rushing for eight touchdowns during his time at Auburn. In 2004, Campbell had his most productive season in leading the Tigers to the SEC Championship and a win in the Sugar Bowl. He finished the season with 2,700 yards passing, 20 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. He was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Year by the league's coaches and Associated Press, and was a first team All-SEC selection.
Strengths: Good Size, Great Senior Year, Good On-Field Leadership, and Can Buy Time to Throw With His Feet.
Weaknesses: Weaknesses: Production hasn't always matched his physical tools, Could be “1 year Wonder”, and Erratic

Darian Durant
Ht/Wt: 5'11, 215, Age: 23
College: North Carolina

BQB_SITE's View:
  A very good athlete playing the QB position. He's quick, agile and elusive. Has a very good pocket presence and ability to consistently escape the rush. He is a dual threat who can make a lot of things happen after the initial play breaks down.  He has above average arm strength. His best throw usually is on the deep ball. He has great deep-ball arm strength and he shows better touch, timing and accuracy on those throws and on other intermediate ones that require more zip.  Durant was unhappy early in his career at UNC and he threatened to transfer in 2001, but never went through with it. He started in ten games from '01-'02 but became the fulltime starter as a junior in '03 and  held down the starting position. Durant is undersized and lacks prototypical NFL quarterback measurables but he is the fastest and the most athletic quarterback in the '05 draft class, which is why a team will likely take a chance on him late on Day 2. He doesn't have great upside at the quarterback position, but he has the athleticism and arm strength to try him out there first before attempting to move him to a different position (such as WR, RB or DB). He also could be a productive special teams player and possibly even a return specialist if given a chance. Strengths: Mobile QB, Runs Hard, and Leadership.
Weaknesses: Lacks Ideal Size, Reading Defenses



Adrian McPherson
Ht/Wt: 6-3/205, Age: 22
College: Florida State

BQB_SITE's View:
McPherson is a tremendous athlete that was a two sport star in High School (Bradenton, FL) where he was named “Mr. Florida” in football and basketball. He was a heralded recruit to Florida State and was supposed to be the next Charlie Ward playing football and basketball. His career at FSU was rocky at best, as he battle Chris Rix on the field and had gambling/financial problems off the field. McPherson got his chance to play at FSU in 2002 and displayed his athletic ability with his whip like arm and speedy quarterback draw runs. He however did not last the whole season and dismissed from school for check fraud and gambling allegations. Though he plead guilty a cloud followed him as he tried unsuccessfully to transfer to Murray State. With no takers in the NCAA, he took his talent to the Indiana Firebirds of the Arena Football League. In the AFL he was named rookie of the year and was in the running for MVP displaying his eye-popping skills and showing he could lead a team and stay out of trouble. We see him as a wild card type player that has the skills of a Michael Vick, but he will have to prove his problems from college are behind him. He has the kind of athleticism rarely found at the position, so coaches will take a chance on him just like the AFL. He will need to learn the position probably in NFL Europe and in camp before he can be considered a solid pro, but he has great potential.
Strengths: Mobile QB, Strong Arm, and Rare Athlete.
Weaknesses: Off-Field Issues, Inexperience, and Throws into Coverage.


Bryan Randall  QB, #3
Ht/Wt: 6-1/215, Age: 22
College: Virginia Tech

BQB_SITE's View:
Randall saw action in all but three games during his freshman season in 2001, he started 12 games in 2002 and he started 13 games in 2004 displaying solid numbers and leadership. He however was known to have problems with bigger opponents like Miami. In the long run he has the potential to develop into an adequate backup. NFL Europe is a strong possibility to get him ready for training camp. If he doesn’t make it in the NFL then the CFL or AFL are good options for his development.
Strengths: Mobile QB, Game Manager, Runs Hard, and Leadership.
Weaknesses: Lacks Ideal Size, Average Player in Colleg, Reading Defenses
