2007 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Chris Leak, QB, Florida

Leak threw a great deep ball in college and his arm strength relative to other college quarterbacks was much better than average. That's no longer the case. On the brink of the NFL, Leak's arm strength is now one of the concerns that scouts have about the former Florida Gator signal-caller. He didn't do much at the combine to quiet those concerns, either. Of course, the even bigger issue is Leak's size. He is only 6-0 and 203 pounds, much smaller than ideal for the next level. Throwing over and around the enormous defensive linemen that the NFL boasts, will no doubt give him plenty of trouble. It's hard to imagine a guy of Leak's physical makeup becoming a star in the NFL, but it has been done before and can be done again. Leak does have his fair share of strengths. He makes good decisions, is a strong leader both on and off the field, and he is a great athlete. Leak isn't terribly fast simply at sprints, but he is elusive and can escape rushing defenders. Overall, however, I doubt that's enough to merit a first-day pick.
