For the last few months the football loving world has been talking primarily about two guys--Stanford's Andrew Luck and Baylor's Robert Griffin III. The last couple weeks Texas A&M's Ryan Tannehill has become part of the conversation (all the Luck/Griffin talk was getting kid of boring). In the process, a real gem has been overlooked--Oklahoma State Cowboys QB Brandon Weeden.
Weeden is a little older than your average rookie (28) having tried his hand at baseball for a few years before enrolling at Oklahoma State. After he took over the starter's duties at QB in 2010 the Cowboys became one of the most feared passing attacks in college football culminating in a 41-38 win over Luck's Stanford Cardinals in the 2012 BCS Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.
As good as he played (4737 yards, 37 TDs, 13 INTs, 72.3 completion percentage) as a senior in leading the team to a No 3 BCS standing his name has not come up much in relation to the draft. After this video of him starts to make the rounds this week that could--or at least should--change.
