2001 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DREW BREES: Purdue, 6000 215 4.84. Very productive three year starter in a pass-oriented offense. Lacks ideal size but is a good athlete and an excellent leader. Quick footed. Senses pressure well. Good at sliding away from the rush or stepping up in the pocket to deliver the ball. Throws well on the move. Good scrambler who reads blocks smartly and will take on tacklers with toughness. Good ball handler. Does a solid job of pump-faking. Holds the ball a little low in his setup but has a quick over-the-top release and above average arm strength. Drills the slant with zip. Has decent velocity on sideline throws. Can throw the lob with touch and timing. Very accurate, especially on short balls. Very good at hitting receivers in stride on crossing routes. Makes quick reads. Can cock and reload quickly. Plays with confidence — makes some risky throws at times, firing the ball into traffic. Not a prototype in terms of size but does a lot of things right.
