    Strengths: Is smooth getting set up, keeps the ball high when dropping back and displays a relatively quick delivery. While needs to work on consistency when trying to lead receivers underneath, is fairly accurate and isn't going to miss the open man very much. Has excellent touch and does a good job of taking some zip off underneath passes. Shows adequate poise and does a fine job of surveying the field when gets time. Mobile enough to get outside the pocket and can throw accurately on the run. Tough, flashes the ability to pick up yards after contact and can be effective running quarterback keepers. Lacks elite elusiveness but has good top-end speed and flashes the ability to break long runs when nothing is available downfield. Is a hard worker on as well as off the field and should only get better with added experience. Has always been prepared as a backup and is a team before self type of player. Had best game of the year against Ohio State in the national championship game and doesn't appear to wilt in high-pressure situations.

    Weaknesses: Size is adequate but not ideal and has to move around to create passing windows. Does a good job of stepping into throws but lacks elite arm strength and is going to have a difficult time making certain NFL throws. Is still learning to read defenses and must do a better job of recognizing the blitz and beating it with his arm rather than his feet. Has a tendency to pat the ball and would benefit from quickening release. Holds onto the ball too long and takes too many big sacks. Missed two games with a high-ankle sprain that hindered him for much of the year and durability is a concern. .

    Overall: After a redshirt year in 2003, Flynn appeared in 17 games (one start) for LSU over the next three seasons (2004-'06), completing 43 of 78 pass attempts (55.1 percent) for 689 yards, 10 touchdowns and two interceptions. He played in 21 other games during that span as the Tigers' holder on placekicks. As a senior, Flynn became the full-time starter, completing 202 of 359 pass attempts (56.3 percent) for 2,407 yards, 21 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He also ran for 215 yards (2.2 average) and four TDs. He suffered a high-ankle sprain in September and missed two games. Flynn's lack of prototypical arm strength, his inexperience and his problems staying healthy are all reasons for concern. However, he does possess adequate-to-good size, he's athletic and he's shown signs of developing into an excellent game manager. As a result, he's worth taking a chance on as a late-round developmental project.

    Not sure about this pick. Maybe he's a practice squad guy for a couple years and you move him like Hasselbeck if he looks good. Doubt he ever plays over Rodgers or Brohm though.
