Ton of physical ability. Absolutely no smoothness to his game at all.

LOL....thinks he is Peyton manning, has all the Manning tendencies at the line of scrimmage, very cocky....has a lot of talent, will need to tone it down some....playing behind the best should humble him.

Yup carrying Rodgers jock around for awhile should do it.
If the Cincinnati Reds were really the first major league baseball team, who did they play?

Smart, athletic QB that has a great arm. McCarthy could turn him into something.

Graham Cracker ain't scurred. That being said, love the pick, wanted him going into the draft, and I'm going to love splitting time between him and Harrell during 4th quarter blowouts in Madden 2013. Giddy-up.
You gotta make it sexy! Hips and nips, otherwise I'm not eating.

Looks like he throws a pretty nice ball with some zip from the Shrine game footage.

Green Bay -- He didn't know it at the time. But Brett Favre -- yes, Brett Favre -- was lending a hand to his old team. He was grooming a future Green Bay Packers quarterback. Through parts of January and February, Favre worked out with Tennessee-Chattanooga's B.J. Coleman in Hattiesburg, Miss.

On Sunday, Green Bay drafted Coleman in the seventh round of the NFL Draft to compete for a back-up spot behind Aaron Rodgers. You know, the guy who replaced Favre amid one of the messiest divorces in sports history. Coleman called Favre an "awesome legend" that he learned plenty from.

The two worked on reading coverages, footwork on drops and much more. Coleman says he learned something new from Favre "every second."

"It’s just endless," said Coleman, who shares the same agent as Favre in Bus Cook. "He’s one of the best. He’ll go down as one of the greatest. To have the opportunity to speak with him and work with him was excellent."

Now if he can just unlearn some of that to clean the slate for Rodgers...

Pretty much

Though as scary as it sounds, Favre's mechanics were better than Coleman's are right now. :(

From my QB Big Board, Coleman was #10:


Well-built Tennessee transfer that stepped up his game as a senior before getting hurt. If he were a college basketball player he would be a Dukie that opposing fans love to hate, has that hard-nosed mentality and wears his high football IQ and scrappiness on his sleeve. Strong arm with a quick, high release that produces great velocity. Can buy time for himself and reset quickly in the pocket. Accustomed to making throws under pressure and in traffic. Can really rifle the ball down the field, very rarely underthrows deeper routes. Has some ability to run but takes a few steps to really get moving. Biggest issue is accuracy, just a 57% passer at the FCS level and it comes from a lack of touch more than the ball being off-line. Throws the ball as hard as he can no matter the distance of the throw, except when he overcompensates and floats it. Has a stiffness to his body when he throws, as if he is bracing for the hit even when no pressure is present. Doesn't always throw from his toes, can be flat-footed. Not good at throwing on the move; poor balance, all shoulder torque. Natural born leader and willing learner who lit up Shrine Game week with those attributes. Has a higher ceiling than some of the guys above him but needs a lot of work to get there. Reminds me of Matt Moore or Kyle Orton, guys that can start for many teams but always leaves them wanting someone a little better. Coleman needs at least a year of development to get to that point. Will be a 4th/5th round pick.

I saw three of his game tapes and had some input from a regional scout that saw every game.
