    Pick up a copy of the Draft Guide by ESPN: The Mag

    They have him going in round 5, 12th QB overall.

    Quarterback | Senior | Georgia D.J. Shockley
    Height: 6-1 | Weight: 214 | 40-Time: 4.56

    Official Bio

    Strengths:
    Outstanding natural athlete...Has a great arm with a quick release...Can be a weapon running the ball...Still has a lot of upside and has not yet been able to really show what he can do...A coaches son who understands the game...Smart and makes good decisions on the field...Was very effective as a starter his senior year...Hard worker...A leader and field general who will sacrifice for his team.

    Weaknesses:
    Still very raw and inexperienced having only started 11 games at the college level...Does not have the height you look for...Needs to be more patient in the pocket and takes off running prematurely...Does not read defenses as well as you'd like...Durability is a concern as he has missed some time with injuries.

    Notes:
    Highly touted recruit who had to sit behind David Greene for almost his entire career before finally getting a shot to start in 2005...An interesting developmental player with potential who could blossom once given an opportunity to shine.



    In terms of physical skills, reminds me a lot of Aaron Brooks when he was drafted by Packers. Would certainly be worth a shot in Round 5 or later.

    Jeezus and Tromadz - I don't know which of your avatars are more offensive: Ahmad's mug shot or Darlene the Matador, but I appreciate the humor. Keep it up!

    I love Sharper. I have his jersey framed and on my wall. I need to get it signed one day. And I've asked tromadz numerous times to post the fullsize of his av, but he ignores me. :cry: But, yeah, Darren has a special place in my heart.
