Kevin Hogan had a decent career at Stanford after taking over from Andrew Luck back in 2011, winning the Pac-12 title in his senior year. Hogan is one of the ugliest passers of the ball Ive seen but he manages to play to his strengths and knows where to go with the football. He would be best suited in a west coast offense who can run the ball effectively, dinking and dunking down the field similar to what he did at Stanford.
Hogan is one of the smartest QBs to come out of college and would have no problem being the clipboard holder for any team, he understands defenses and what they are trying to do. He will probably never become a full time starter but can be relied on to come in if your teams starter gets injured, but don’t expect miracles.
Hogan is going to have a fairly long career in the NFL as a backup and will probably be one of the better backups in the NFL but he just doesn’t have the skills to make it as an NFL starter. Hogan is attending the NFL combine 2016 and will throw, i don’t foresee him making too much of a difference to his draft stock here unless he throws really poorly.
