I have to disagree with Chad Henne being placed above Colt Brennan as far as QBs in the draft goes. Henne, although surrounded by more talent and more national exposure, does not have the same level of ability that Brennan possesses. True, his numbers are inflated by being in the same system as predecessor Timmy Chang, but you can't ignore his accuracy for more passes than most QBs and the fact that he does not fail to put up the same stats when facing tougher opponents. He has wise decision making skills and he is armed with great pocket presence and a quick release. My suggestion to those who don't know enough about Brennan is to watch his games. This may be hard due to untelevised WAC play and playing out in the Pacific, but he does show that there is more to him than stats. Michigan unfortunately decided not to follow through with scheduling a game with Hawaii this season, following Michigan State's decision to back out due to their last embarrassing loss to the Warriors. I would place Henne at third or fourth on the QB list.
