Signed by Oklahoma out of high school, Bomar played well as a redshirt freshman, winning the Holiday Bowl MVP in the Sooners' win over Oregon. However, he was dismissed from the team after accepting larger-than-earned paychecks from a Norman car dealership. His draft stock is still on the rise because his athleticism and arm strength are coveted by scouts in this weak senior quarterback class. The second-team All-Southland pick (3,355 yards, 27 touchdown passes) showed Kansas this September that his skills are still FBS-caliber as he threw for 340 yards despite his team being completely overmatched. Had an arm span of 32 inches and a hand span of 9 inches at the combine.



Strengths: Adequate height and size, with strong bicep development. His quick release and arm strength allow him to throw accurately over the middle, across the field or on the run (to his left and right) from under center or the shotgun. Displayed above-average mobility, even early in the season when wearing a brace to protect a torn left ACL suffered late in 2007 (missed last two games). Can move within the pocket to find a passing lane and keep defenses honest by running for first downs (and more). Weaknesses: Strong leader, but straddles the line between confident and cocky. Lacks the size that can propel FCS quarterbacks like Joe Flacco into the first round. Locks onto receivers and gets stuck in the pocket (leading to sacks) if his primary read is not available. Needs a bit more air under this deep throws and must take some zip off short touch throws. Threw 13 interceptions in 2008, usually when trying to force a ball deep to keep his team in the ballgame.
