Brooks Bollinger

SELECTED BY HOUSTON , ROUND 6, PICK 35, OVERALL PICK 200
QB | (6-0, 203, 4.8) | Wisconsin
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Top football, baseball and basketball player in high school who was the Gatorade State Player of the Year in 1997, the starting quarterback in football since ninth grade, the point guard in basketball and the shortstop in baseball. Was a 50th-round pick of the Dodgers in the June 2000 baseball draft. Redshirted in '98. Big Ten Freshman of the Year in '99. Started every game in 2000. Missed three games and parts of two others in '01 with a liver contusion suffered in the opener (he was out of Games Two and Three) and groin and hip injuries that cost him another game. Completed 82-of-140 passes for 1,133 yards, eight touchdowns and two interceptions and ran 109 times for 454 yards and six touchdowns in '99; 110-209-1,479-10-7 and 157-459-6 in 2000; and 91-177-1,257-6-4 and 92-388-6 in '01. Had a 22-7 record as a starter and a 24-15 TD-interception ratio through three years. In '02, completed 119-221-1,595-12-3 and ran 140-384-7 in 12 games.

Positives: Very good athlete with quick feet and athletic ability who doesn't make mental mistakes or throw interceptions. Is good to outstanding as a game manager, though the game isn't often put on his shoulders. Can slide his feet and avoid pressure in the pocket.

Negatives: Lacks pure passing skills, arm strength and toughness. Drops his elbow and has a three-quarter delivery at times. Is not accurate and lacks timing and touch. More of a slinger without the gun who doesn't square his shoulder.

Summary: Might not have the arm strength, size or accuracy to succeed in the NFL.
