2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Brandon Weeden, QB, Oklahoma State

Brandon Weeden is 28 years old, but that's not to say he has no future in the NFL. In fact, Weeden has a good chance of being the fourth quarterback taken in the draft behind the trio of Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin and Ryan Tannehill.

As the leader of Oklahoma State's dynamic offense, he'll need to transition from a spread offense to a pro-style offense. Weeden can make all the big throws, but sometimes requires a lot of space to set his feet, wind up and deliver the football. He displays a solid pocket awareness in being able to slide laterally and make the pass. Accuracy is not an issue; he shows nice touch on short and intermediate routes. Weeden does well to keep his eyes moving through progressions and not locking onto where he wants to throw the ball.

Like many other college QBs, he will have to learn to deal with pressure up the middle by staying patient with his feet and make good throws with a shorter delivery. Weeden's mobility is limited and he is average at throwing the ball when on the move.
