    Darrell Hackney, QB, U.A.B.

    Strengths:
    Has an amazing arm and can make all the throws...Is very strong and a beast in the weight room...Solidly built and is very tough to bring down...Has put up some impressive numbers at the college level...A leader who is calm in the pocket...Has nimble feet and moves pretty well for a guy his size...A competitor who is very confident in his abilities...Still has some upside if he can be coached up.

    Weaknesses:
    Has struggled with his weight and needs to keep that in check...Lacks ideal height...Is not very fast or athletic...Mechanics can get very dodgy at times...Might be too muscle-bound...Makes too many poor decisions...Must improve his accuracy...Has not consistently played against elite competition...Might have some maturity issues...Just raw around the edges and needs to refine his overall game.

    Notes:
    Has some tools to work with but also has a lot of questions marks as well...Interesting developmental prospect due to his build and cannon of an arm...Has the potential to develop into a starter down the line but could just as easily flame out if doesn't improve his mechanics and technique.

    Day One Draft Pick


    He is similar to Daunte Culpepper I see alot of upside in him and I dont believe he will be a 1st rounder so maybe a sleeper pick?

    pass.

    He's got waaaaay too many negatives.

    Strictly developmental. We already have 2.

    If this is the type of QB we're looking for, I believe Rohan Davie may still be available. He's also been in the league for a few years so he'd be a much better option IMO.

    Rohan Davey plays for the Cardinals. For what it's worth, Hackney grew up a Cowboys fan. He's playing in the Senior Bowl.

    Why take a chance on a guy like this when Omar Jacobs will be available in the draft. Jacabs has a strong arm with accuracy.

    He does not play baseball, therefore, I pass!

    That's A LOT of negatives, but the kid does have potential. The question is, does he have more potential then Romo and/or Henson? Since we've already spent 2-3 years developing those 2 guys, I say we stick with them a bit longer and see if they've developed. No sense spending 2 or 3 years on a guy and then getting rid of him before he gets a chance to show what he's got.


    Hopefully at least one of them will be in Europe this year.

    He's got a great arm, but Parcells has his guy in Bledsoe.

    Doubt it! i have seen this kid before. he looks like a frakin linebacker. his is really muscle-bound. he was bouncing around brfore the game, but while in the game, he didn't look so good.
