Ourlads' Profile:

2019 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about BRETT RYPIEN: Boise State, 6015 210 4.95. Four-year starter from Spokane, WA and the Mountain West Conference Offensive Player of the Year. A patient passer who spreads the ball around. The three time captain of the Broncos’ trademark is poised and accurate during his career. Has a quick set up to the throwing point taking snaps under center during the EastWest Shrine practices and demonstrated a sudden release. Well schooled on a variety of passes and doesn’t hesitate to take what the defense gives him. Throws a nice spiral with touch and ball placement. Reacts quickly when in the shotgun to hit the open receiver. Keeps his eyes down the field and keeps his feet alive in the pocket. A dynamic leader, Rypien stepped up and took charge of the team after injuries to three receivers during the year. The ex-Bronco was radar gunned at the Combine with the strongest arm in Indianapolis. He knows how to work and step up into the pocket to drive the deep pass down the field. Boise State is a tempo and timing offense that Rypien kept on schedule. His ball placement to his receivers and backs is consistent and spot on. An ascending player he earned career highs in yards, completion percentage, and touchdowns. He was 37-12 as a starter. Nephew of former Super Bowl XXVI MVP Mark Rypien. He concluded his college career with 90 touchdowns and only 29 interceptions. May work his way into a solid backup position where he can start and win games if the starter goes down. Smart and dedicated in his play. 2018 stats: 301/447, 3705 yds, 67.3%, 30 TD, 7 INT, 12 yds rushing, 0 TD, 156.0 QB rating. Ball velocity 59 mph. OSR:12/16. Fourth/fifth round. (A-30 3/8, H-9, SS-4.31, VJ-33).
