Kevin Hogan easily passes 'Parcells Rules' for quarterbacks

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers will be paying close attention to the 2016 QB draft prospects. Could the Stanford quarterback end up on their radar?

Last week, we took a look at the Parcells Rules as applied to some of the top quarterback prospects in the 2016 NFL Draft. Connor Cook ranked first, hitting on six of the seven categories. Jared Goff, Carson Wentz, and Paxton Lynch all hit on four, and Christian Hackenberg hit on two.

The analyst was only looking at Todd McShay's top two tiers of quarterbacks, so it missed out on some players that would pass with flying colors. Someone mentioned Vernon Adams in the comments. He spent three years at Eastern Washington and one year at Oregon, and hits on all seven categories (I believe he graduates this year).

There is another prospect that also hits on it, who also brings more traditional NFL size to the position. Stanford quarterback Kevin Hogan finished off his five years at Stanford starting for a little over three full seasons, and taking home two Rose Bowl victories in four seasons. Here are the Parcells Rules, with Hogan's numbers:

1. Be a three-year starter - first start was in November 2012, started entirety of 2013, 2014, 2015
2. Be a senior in college - yes
3. Graduate from college - yes
4. Start 30 games - 46
5. Win 23 games - 36
6. Post a 2-1 touchdown-to-interception ratio - 75/29 = 2.58/1
7. Tally a completion rate of 60 percent or higher - 65.9 percent (lowest season was 61.0 percent in 2013)

It seems like Hogan is going to find a home sometime on day three. CBSSports.com projects him in the sixth round, and ESPN's Scouts Inc ranks him No. 171 on their big board. There are enough questions about this quarterback class that the 49ers might prefer to draft more of an impact player at No. 7, and see who slips down to them. Connor Cook and Dak Prescott seem like two logical candidates, but maybe the local product is on the radar?
