NFL Draft Analysis: Rhett Bomar, QB, Sam Houston State Bearkats

by Trent Lujin on March 16, 2009 @ 00:00:00 PDT


Sam Houston State quarterback Rhett Bomar has had a much-maligned collegiate career. Bomar started out at the University of Oklahoma, where he was dismissed from the team for breaking NCAA rules in 2006. He then transferred to Sam Houston State. His two seasons as a Bearkat were highly productive, in fact he is now the career leader in passing yards and total offense (5,564 and 6,159, respectively). 


  • Great arm strength
  • Fluid throwing motion
  • Pocket mobility allows him to extend plays
  • Throws a very catchable ball
  • Good leader


  • Off-field concerns
  • Average height, measured at 6-foot-2 1/4
  • Lack of experience against high-level competition
  • Not overly accurate
  • Tends to lock into his primary receiver
  • Overly confident to cocky in demeanor

Expected draft placement

The only quarterbacks in the draft that are most assured to be taken before Bomar are University of Georgia's Matthew Stafford, University of Southern California's Mark Sanchez and Kansas State's Josh Freeman. Aside from these three prospects, Bomar may be the next quarterback considered.

Teams that could potentially show interest in the still-improving quarterback are: San Francisco 49ers, Houston Texans, Detroit Lions, Carolina Panthers and Dallas Cowboys. Detroit could consider Bomar early in the third round (65th overall), assuming they do not select a quarterback with an earlier selection. On the flip side, it is possible Bomar might not be selected until the fifth round by the Texans (144th overall).
