Jarrett Brown says no one can out-throw him

Jarrett-Brown.jpgSince Florio didn’t drive the VW Bus to Indianapolis, it’s my PFT duty to talk to every West Virginia prospect that comes through the room.

WVU quarterback Jarrett Brown is an intriguing prospect, especially after a strong Senior Bowl performance.  He came across as quietly confident — and funny, a rare player who looked completely at ease at this meat market.

He said he was looking forward to the throwing drills most Sunday.  “I can throw any given day.”  He also said that he feels no one could out-throw him in the country.

I asked who was a more hot-headed coach to play for: Bob Huggins (Brown played basketball after the 2007 football season) or Rich Rodriguez.

“Man, they are head to head,” Brown said.  “Huggins . . . man, I love playing for that dude.”

Silva thinks Brown has a little David Garrard in him and should be taken in the middle rounds of the draft.

  1. I agree, there aren’t many QBs in this draft that have an impressive arm. Jarrett Brown would have to be at or near the top of the list. Perhaps Jevan Snead and John Skelton (of Fordham) can give Brown some decent competition as the remainder of the prospects’ arms are more like pea shooters rather than Howitzers.

  2. West Virginia’s offense fell apart in the Gator Bowl after he was injured. Definitely a project but a team like Green Bay or New Orleans could be a good spot. He should not play early as he still has huge accuracy issues.

  3. “Silva thinks Brown has a little David Garrard in him…”
    Your boss would probably used the old Seinfeld line “not that there’s anything wrong with that”.

  4. Well, he certainly has the physical tools to succeed. Watching him play last season, his decision making is suspect.
    I would definitely say he has as strong an arm as anyone else in the draft, and definitely as accurate.

  5. you already got the job Greg….no need to keep kissing Florio’s WVU loving ass anymore.
    you’re better than him already.

  6. That’s a pretty accurate statement seeing that none of the quarterbacks are throwing at the combine.

  7. I’m a huge WVU fan and Brown sucks. I think the JaMarcus Russell comparisons are sound except Brown is worse. However, to throw him a bone, he didn’t get any coaching out of the douche RichRod or the moron Bill Stewart. So, as long as he doesn’t go to Tampa or Buffalo he may get some coaching and may prove me wrong. Probably not.

  8. He’s a good QB. He has the raw tools to succeed. If some team with a good coaching staff can draft him in the later rounds and develop his decision making and mechanics, he can be a legitimate starter in this league.

  9. Jarret Brown threw for just under 3,000 yards in his career at WVU. And started one season. Garrard started every game his Soph, Jr and Sr season after taking the starting job mid-way through his redshirt freshman year. Garrard broke 28 school passing and offensive records. He had more than 9000 passing yards and 1000 rushing yards. So I guess PFT is right in a way. Jarret Brown does have a little Garrad in him. About 33% worth.

  10. He has the physical tools to do well, but he only started 1 season so he doesn’t have a lot of experience. I remember 1 game (Auburn maybe) where he threw a couple picks on screen passes to 4’11” Noel Devine.
    Sounds like he needs to go to Chicago so he and Cutler can have throwing contests.
