Are There Any Later Round Unpolished Gems at QB?

Mel Kiper answered some questions on a media conference call on Wednesday and fielded some questions about the Jets and their needs as they enter the draft.  While Kiper focused on some players that might or might not be schematic fits for the Jets, he also talked about the later round quarterbacks.

The Jets also are in the market for a quarterback. No quarterback is worthy of the ninth pick, according to Kiper and many draft experts. Kiper mentioned three late-round possibilities for the Jets — Zak Dysert (Miami, Ohio), Sean Renfree (Duke) and Brad Sorensen (Southern Utah).

From what I understand, Dysert didn’t overwhelm anyone at the Senior Bowl, but that he did show a knack for being an effective scrambling quarterback.  While I don’t know much about Renfree, I did get a chance to see Sorensen at the Collegiate Bowl back in January.  Sorensen had some impressive throws despite being on the snakebitten American team.  Sorensen caused two of the team’s five turnovers via interception, but Sorensen has some impressive arm strength and accuracy despite going 8-16 during the course of the NFLPA’s annual All-Star game.  You can read this very detailed scouting report on Sorensen, who might be something of a hidden talent in this draft class.  Even if he is that type of player, there’s not going to be much chance that he could be a robust first season starter.
