Scouting Report
The most productive passer in college football history, Keenum leaves Houston as the sport's all-time leader in total offense, passing yards, touchdowns and completions, capping his career by shredding Penn State for 532 yards in a TicketCity Bowl win. Keenum is extremely accurate in the short-to-mid range passing game, gets the ball out quickly and has an over-the-top release by necessity because he doesn't have prototypical height for the position. He's intelligent, has good pocket presence and is mobile enough to elude pass rushers. But while Keenum shattered the NCAA record books in his six years with the Cougars, there are plenty of reasons - aside from his 2010 ACL tear - why he won't be picked early in the draft. Keenum's arm strength simply isn't there, making it tough for him to make throws downfield, and he failed to impress scouts at the NFL combine. He took nearly all of his collegiate snaps from the shotgun and didn't have to make many reads after the ball was in his hands in Houston's spread offense. That leads to trouble when his pre-snap read is covered, and Keenum tends to make some questionable decisions when forced to improvise. He does have solid leadership skills, however, and could have a chip on his shoulder to succeed after a lengthy track record of winning. Keenum faces long odds to be an NFL starter but has the poise and accuracy to at least be a career backup. Still, teams picking in the sixth and seventh rounds of the draft may prefer taking a flier on a prospect with more upside. That possibility could mean Keenum, records and all, may need to latch on as a free agent.
