Philbin will get a chance to coach Rodger’s brother in 2014. Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Dolphins added quarterback Jordan Rodgers to the roster on Wednesday.

Rob Rang's draft analysis on Rodgers last year.


Quote:
Jordan Rodgers, QB
School: Vanderbilt | Conference: SEC
College Experience: Senior | Hometown: Chico, CA
Height/Weight: 6-2 / 202 lbs.

Projected Ranking
Overall: 265
Position: 13
Proj. Rnd.: 7-FA

STRENGTHS: Short, but otherwise possesses a reasonably stout and athletic build for the quarterback position. Boasts the same quick-strike release that has helped his brother compensate for his lack of elite size (6020, 223 at 2007 Combine). Appears to have just average arm strength, overall, but possesses impressive velocity on short and intermediate throws, as the ball zips out of his hand.

Rifles in-breaking routes, showing the confidence to throw receivers open against tight press coverage. Good touch down the seam and sidelines, as well. Consistently hits his receivers in stride, giving them opportunities to make yardage after the catch. Athletic. Buys time in the pocket, showing some slippery moves to escape and keeps his eyes downfield. Sets up pass rushers, showing the ability to pump-fake and get defenders off their feet to run around them or help his receiver break open. Gritty. Plays with a chip on his shoulder and isn't intimidated by the size/speed of SEC competition.

Very willing to run when the pocket breaks down, rushing for 420 yards as a junior (and four scores). Developed into more of a pocket passer in his second season as a starter, rushing for just 71 yards (and two scores). Voted a team captain in 2012. Helped lead Vanderbilt to a 7-4 record in 2012, one of the best seasons in school history. Highly competitive and dedicated to his craft.

WEAKNESSES: Considerably shorter than preferred does not appear to have the incredible field vision which allows other short quarterbacks (like Drew Brees, Russell Wilson, etc.) to compensate. Average arm strength. Needs a clean pocket and room to step into long-distance throws. When he isn't allowed to step toward his target, Rodgers' passes tend to flutter, as do too many of his deep passes, which could prove to be his Achilles' heel as NFL defenses will crowd close and force him to beat them over the top.

Compares To: Tyler Thigpen, QB, Buffalo Bills

The brother of one of the greatest QB's I've ever seen is definitely worth taking a look at, if he does have great velocity (Dan's thing), then that can be tweaked to put some air under the ball for deep throws, remember what Danny boy always said, velocity is more important than distance in the NFL.

I watched Jordan play in a College All-Star game sponsored by the NFL in California when I flew out to see my friends son play. Not impressed.

Jordan is a practice squad candidate at best.

Looks like we found a replacement for Devlin. I'm sure we'll bring in another undrafted free agent to compete with him.

Devlin mus be pretty bad if he has already lost the # 3 QB spot to Tampa's practice squad QB..

He's a free agent who ran out of practice squad eligibility if I'm not mistaken. Rodgers likely still has another year or two of practice squad eligibility. Personally, I'm hoping we bring in an UDFA to compete with Rodgers. I like Jeff Mathews from Cornell. The kid has the size and arm strength to take the hits and make the throws. He broke every one of Lazor's Cornell passer records too. I'm sure the two of them would get along great and in a couple of years he could replace Moore as Tannehill's backup.
