Overview

Because the WAC is a pass-happy conference, a guy like Holbrook can complete 69.3 percent of his passes, throw for 11,846 yards and 85 touchdowns (vs. 41 interceptions) without ever winning first- or second-team all-conference honors. Holbrook is not considered a top-tier talent because of his average arm strength, sloppy footwork and poor mobility. But his size, raw talent and production might get him a shot in a very weak quarterback class. Had an arm span of 32 3/8 inches and a hand span of 10 1/8 inches at the combine.

Analysis

Strengths

Positives: Prototypical size for a pocket passer, with a thick build throughout. Looks off the safety to throw to other side of the field. Shows nice arc and touch on red zone fade routes and throws down the sideline. Delivery is quick enough to be work with. Uses his height and has just enough mobility to step up in the pocket to deliver the underneath pass. When he sets his feet to throw, he can deliver on time with zip. Played through broken ribs through the middle of the 2007 season, only missing one start and parts of another game. Negatives: Operates mostly out of the shotgun. Must continue to improve his footwork coming out from under center. Ball comes out of his hand poorly when trying to throw with some zip. Uses a Foutsian backpedal after shotgun snap. Does not move quickly in the face of pressure. Lacks foot speed to run bootlegs effectively or avoid sacks. His pass velocity is not impressive despite his size, even in the rare times where his footwork is adequate. Many throws are floaters coming off his back foot, even when the pocket is intact. Accuracy and velocity on throws down the seam are severely lacking. His yardage numbers and high completion percentage are mostly attributed to short passes to quick receivers or floaters.
