Scouting Report on Connor Wood

On the Hoof: Physically, Wood has a great quarterback body. He has broad shoulders, is strong through the chest, has a sturdy base and should have the strength to take a college pounding. Wood is similar in size and build to current Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck.
Needs Improvement: At times, Wood doesn’t consistently get good spin on his football, particularly on vertical routes. He has a tendency to hang the football in the air too long. He will need an adjustment period to deal with the speed of the college game after playing at a low level of football in high school.
Most Impressive: Wood has very good arm-strength, but what really makes him special is his athleticism. His high release combined with good size benefit him as a passer. Though he is a big, physical prospect, Wood can really run, is mobile in the pocket and is very comfortable throwing on the run and outside of the pocket. As far as the physical tools that you look for in a quarterback, there is very little that Wood is lacking.
Conclusion: Wood will not be asked to step in right away at Texas and compete for a starting job and that should do wonders for his development. With the tools that he has to work with, Wood has the potential to develop into a premier Big 12 quarterback.

Monday with Mike: Ranking the QB duos08/30/2010 Rivals.com College Football

Houston's Case Keenum has had back-to-back 5,000-yard seasons and would seem to have a legitimate shot at the first 6,000-yard season in history this fall. Does that production give the Cougars the top quarterback situation heading into the season? Mike Huguenin ranks the QB duos for all 120 FBS teams inside.
