Matt Flynn 6'2 231 LSU 4.79

By: Robert Davis

Flynn has waited for his chance to shine at LSU, and it has finally come as a senior. Up until this point, he has just been a backup to last years #1 overall pick, JaMarcus Russell. In his only extended playing time in 2005, Flynn threw for 457 yards and seven touchdowns while completing over 56% of his passes to go along with one interception. Flynn took over for JaMarcus Russell this season, throwing for 2,233 yards, while completing over 55% of his passes for 17 TDs and ten picks.

Flynn is an intelligent, accurate passer. He is efficient and is confident in his ability to lead the offense. He does not force passes and is good at taking what the defense gives him. He is a good athlete that shows the ability to elude the rush and buy more time to throw the football, along with the ability to pick up some yardage once plays break down.

There is not anything about his game physically that stands out. Flynn has decent size, but his arm and overall athletic ability are only average. He is mobile but he is not going to pick up big chunks of yardage or strike fear in defenses. As a passer, he lacks the arm to thread the needle and will not carry an offense on his shoulders.

Flynn is tough and has the intangibles you want in a quarterback, but he is only average across the board physically. He could potentially develop into a quality backup quarterback because of his intelligence, but his potential may be limited at the next level.
