Brett Rypien, Boise State

Brett Rypien is the guy I have my eye on for the Denver Broncos out of all day two to day three quarterbacks.

Rypien is a rhythm thrower out of Boise State. His presence in the pocket is a mixed bag. There are times he waits as long as possible or slides to create a window of opportunity to throw. His footwork in the pocket is very impressive.

His ability to bounce outside the pocket to make opportunities happen is a plus. His pocket presence to move up and either use his legs or pass is something the Broncos will love.

There are times he can wow with a throw and times poo mechanics rear their ugly head.

His compact motion can help him fit the football into tight spaces. Rypien needs everything to be right, but the mobility he has is just enough to create a plan B whenever he needs it.

He seems to be just the right quarterback to fit the scheme Rich Scangarello runs. There’s some talk the offense dates to some of Boise State’s glory days. If this is true, then Rypien has to be near the top of quarterbacks to develop under Joe Flacco.

Rypien challenges every part of the field and if he can work the awareness in the pocket, the Denver Broncos might have something if they take him.

The NFL Draft is the biggest poker game, but Rypien seems like the best guy to have on the team’s radar right now.

Here are some of Rypien’s college highlights.
