17 DAYS UNTIL THE DRAFT...
Jevan Snead had a bad case of the ups and downs as far as his collegiate career went. He got the chance to play with other very successful college players but as they left, his game got weaker and weaker. He wasn't exactly the type of quarterback that could carry a team on his shoulders. His accuracy was at his best average but he has a very powerful arm. Losing Michael Oher and Mike Wallace last year did not help matters much for Snead. He was originally a transfer from the University of Texas because he wanted to start, and knew he wouldn't behind Colt McCoy.
Some players come out of college before they're ready. Jevan Snead in my opinion was a guy who could have afforded to stay another year to try and help his stock status out some. At the beginning of the season, he was being projected to have a big year. But those who were making the projections quickly found out that he was not what they were claiming and that his previous success was more attributed to the surrounding cast he had in the years leading up to the last one. However, he did have enough pieces to do better than what he did; Shay Hodge and Dexter McCluster both come to mind in that equation.
Below, we'll look at Snead's highlights, stats, and I'll provide my projection on where I think he'll end up being drafted.
This video highlights some of the good things Snead has done in his career.

SUMMARY AND PROJECTION:
As I alluded to above, I think Snead is leaving college prematurely. I believe he is potentially losing a lot of money and a chance to be one of the top five quarterbacks picked. He threw just as many interceptions as he did touchdowns and proved to be one of those players that gets too much hype. He is no being projected at around the 5th round and in some cases even the 6th. Snead measured at 6'3" and weighed 219 at the combine.
Possibilities -- 5th Round: Picks 132-169, 6th Round: Picks 170-186.
