Stanford’s Kevin Hogan is definitely given less attention than other quarterbacks in the 2016 NFL Draft, but that doesn’t mean that he doesn’t have a ton of potential. In fact, he may be one of the most underrated quarterbacks in this year’s draft.
Hogan is predicted to be taken sometime during the third day of the draft, but CBS Sports’ Rob Rang believes he will “enjoy a more fruitful NFL career than a couple of the quarterbacks selected ahead of him in the 2016 draft.” The Stanford quarterback shows a lot of promise with tremendous throwing power, overall accuracy, and mobility, which is becoming more and more vital in today’s NFL.
Kevin Hogan has also proven to be a great leader, and has all of the intangibles that coaches seek in a quarterback.
The 6’3, 218 lb signal caller even boasted a faster time in the three cone drill (6.90) and the 40-yard dash (4.72) than two better known quarterbacks in the 2016 draft, Dak Prescott and Paxton Lynch.
Any team that is looking for a steal at the quarterback position in the later rounds of the draft need not look any further than Hogan.
