    Default Draft Brett Rypien (or)

    I hate to bring up another NCAA QB whos uncle was a former QB after the Chad Kelly fiasco. But theres another QB coming out next year with a famous uncle.

    Brett Rypien, Mark Rypien's nephew has been a 4 year starter at Boise State.

    From what I've seen (not that im a scout obviously) hes shown enough arm strength and touch to play in the NFL and the BS offense is similar to a pro set, so no worries about him being too big a project or a square peg round hole issue, which is huge for this team after the Lynch disaster. Hes not very mobile and more of a straight pocket passer. He meets the prototype close enough in size at 6'2".

    BS has been pretty good and his career highlights their look pretty encouraging. He wont likely be a 1st rd pick either so it wouldnt cost a fortune.

    He already looks good in blue and orange too ha

    What say you guys about Brett Rypien and where would he fall in a supposedly weak QB Draft

    I wouldn’t worry about Rypien’s off the field demeanor like Kelly’s. He’s had none of the behavioral problems Kelly had in college. I’ll be honest, though, haven’t watched a ton of Boise, so I don’t know how good he is, but I’ve seen him listed as a mid-rounder.

    Rypien is pretty underrated...for now. I think once scouts really start to dig into his tape and we see the combine numbers, he's going to shoot up charts. I'd have him as a top 5 QB in NCAA right now. Most impressive thing about him is the intangibles. All the little things he does that matter. Don't see it very often with college QB's

    After 3 years of weak armed QBs (Siemian and Keenum) I want someone who’s a good passer with the arm talent to take advantage of our weapons. I don’t watch enough college ball to really scout anyone but I like what I’ve seen from Lock and Thorsen as far as arm talent is concerned.

    He can make all the throws ive seen. Seems mechanically sound (cue in Beef with the Lincoln jokes).

    Whatever Elway chooses to do i hope he does his research. I dont want him just taking players because of name, lets go get a Qb who can be our future, if Rypien can be that guy than great but dont rely on name alone.

    Yeah we were down that route 20 years ago with Brian Griese.

    Regardless of the name, he has the goods. Biggest question mark he had was downfield throwing, but last I saw, his completion % on passes over 20 years was over 50% this year.

    I love him. He will be a franchise QB.

    Hell I even thought Kellen Clemens would have been a top guy but he got brain damaged and sabotaged with the NYJ.

    I don't think we have any receivers fast enough to catch a ball 20 years into the future.


    Tned, TX, NTL, Buff, MO, BW and TJR -- shall we elevate the conversation?

    I’ve seen the majority of his games.

    He’s tough, he’s smart, he’s really accurate. He can get the ball out quick, but does hold it at times. He has excellent timing.

    He doesn’t have an overly strong arm and isn’t very big. I think he’s 6’1”.

    I wouldn’t want Denver to take him in the 1st. I see him as a slight upgrade to Keenum, maybe. He probably has a slightly stronger arm than Case.

    If Denver doesn’t get a blue chip at the top of the first I’d be ok with them taking Rypien in the 2nd.

    I do not see anything different from this kid as Kevin Hogan. So pissed about Chad Kelly. We really must trade for a qb.
