Chiefs selected Stanford QB Kevin Hogan with the No. 162 overall pick in the 2016 draft.
Hogan (6'3/218) started 3 1/2 years, posting a 36-10 career record with a 65.8% completion rate, 8.51 YPA, and 75:29 TD-to-INT ratio. He ran 4.78 with a 32 1/2-inch vertical at the Combine. A "push passer" with an awkward release, Hogan has mediocre arm strength and was primarily used as a game manager at Stanford. He showed a tendency to panic and play too fast under pressure, scrambling around like a poor man's Jeff Garcia. Hogan is intelligent (Wonderlic of 38) with a gym-rat work ethic, but physical limitations will likely cap his ceiling at NFL backup. He will open his career behind Alex Smith and the winner of the Aaron Murray-Tyler Bray camp battle. Apr 30 - 3:13 PM

CBS Sports draft analyst Rob Rang wrote that Stanford QB Kevin Hogan could enjoy "a more fruitful NFL career than a couple of the quarterbacks selected ahead of him."

Rang refers to Hogan as an "underrated athlete," noting that he bested the 40-yard dash and three-cone drill times of both Memphis QB Paxton Lynch and Mississippi State QB Dak Prescott. Hogan ran the 40 in 4.72 seconds and the three-cone in 6.90 seconds. "He also possesses the intangibles I value at the position, including leadership, grit and experience on the big stage," Rang wrote. The 6-foot-3, 218-pounder has taken visits to the Browns, Ravens and Chargers as he look to make an impact as a Day 3 selection.

Stanford QB Kevin Hogan has taken an official visit to the Chargers.

This according to NFL Media insider Ian Rapoport. Hogan has also logged visits with the Browns and Ravens. Rapoport additionally reports that the Eagles, Buccaneers, Titans and Raiders met with him at Stanford. Not making the recently reported rounds, the Bills, whom we have heard linked to Hogan on multiple occasions. NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt sees him as a potential solid backup at the NFL level and likes the progress the 6-foot-3, 218-pounder has made in tightening up his throwing motion over the course of the process.

Multiple NFL scouts speaking with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel weren't concerned about Stanford QB Kevin Hogan's awkward throwing motion.

"He's more ready than Brissett is," one scout said. "He is accurate. He does pretty much everything well. He has a funny release. Doesn't Philip Rivers have a funny release?" That he does. Scouts are more interested -- and impressed -- with Hogan's 16-6 record against AP top 25 opponents. "That (delivery) doesn't bother me," said a second scout. "Sonny Jurgensen had a really weird release. Throws it like Philip Rivers. He's cerebral, smooth." On the Wonderlic, Hogan scored a superb 38. "He's your old-time pro QB," said a third scout. "Takes most of his snaps under center. He's good but not anything special." We've heard the Bills love Hogan.

FOX Sports' Peter Schrager reports that the Bills remain "very much" a contender to draft a quarterback.

The Bills find themselves in an interesting draft spot if they're looking to take a quarterback on Day 1. With pick No. 19, they would theoretically be in the range of Memphis QB Paxton Lynch, though it remains to be seen whether potential quarterback selections by the Rams and Browns at No. 1 and No. 2 might push Lynch up boards earlier than expected. If the Bills opt to wait, they should have plenty of options at pick No. 49 in the second round. In mid-March, GM Doug Whaley referred to Stanford QB Kevin Hogan as the most NFL-ready quarterback in this pool. We don't view Hogan as a second-round pick at this point, but Cardale Jones, Christian Hackenberg or Connor Cook would all be reasonable arm selections at No. 49.

CBS Sports analyst Rick Neuheisel said on Sirius XM NFL Radio that Stanford QB Kevin Hogan will meet with the Browns on Monday.

Meeting season has come to a full boil. Hogan already went through workouts with the Eagles and Ravens. He will meet with the Browns on Monday. It's probably best not to read too much into his Cleveland rendezvous. The Browns have long been linked to drafting either North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz or Cal QB Jared Goff with the second overall selection. Should they pull a draft rabbit out of their hat, though, they could alternatively target FSU DB Jalen Ramsey or UCLA LB Myles Jack at No. 2 and hold off on their quarterbacking needs until a later round.

Stanford QB Kevin Hogan indicated in his running draft diary on CBS Sports that he recently worked out with the Ravens.

Hogan wrote that the Raven facilities "blew [him] away." He went on to describe some of the work the team put him through. "Throughout the hour-long throwing session," Hogan noted, "we moved up and down the route tree, including some throws on the run. After the workout, I went and did some "chalk talk" with quarterbacks coach Marty Mornhinweg." He described the conversation as "fun." The 6-foot-3, 218-pounder also worked out with the Eagles before the calendar flipped over to April. During the pre-draft season, Hogan has been working to shore up his throwing motion, which had contained a bit of a longer windup. He should earn a Day 3 draft selection and could develop into a nice backup at the NFL level.

The Eagles worked out Stanford QB Kevin Hogan earlier this week.

Hat tip to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline for the dispatch. Philadelphia has heavily scouted this year's quarterback class and figures to pull the trigger on a signal-caller at some point in Chicago later this month.
Apr 1 - 4:00 PM

NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt noted that Stanford QB Kevin Hogan "could wind up being a really good backup quarterback in the NFL."

Both Brandt and TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote of a tightened throwing motion for his Pro Day on March 21. Brandt described it as "quicker and shorter now than it was at the NFL Scouting Combine." The 6-foot-3, 218-pound Cardinal gunslinger has done a nice job of lingering in draft conversations. Earlier in March, Bills GM Doug Whaley called him the most NFL-ready quarterback in this draft class, while in late January, Pauline checked in with news that the Patriots met with him during the Senior Bowl practice week and that he was the "type of athletic quarterback prospect they like to develop."

An NFC scout who spoke with NJ.com noted that the Giants could be in the market for Michigan State QB Connor Cook or Stanford QB Kevin Hogan.

"If they even take one," the scout said, adding, "I guess it all depends on how their board looks and how it falls. They're a West Coast team now, too, with McAdoo. So keep that in mind. Maybe Cook, maybe Hogan." The 6-foot-3, 218-pound Hogan figures to be a better option if the Giants plan on waiting until the middle rounds, simply because Cook could well be drafted by the end of Day 2. Hogan's been working with a QB coach to shorten his throwing motion of late, according to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, who noted that Hogan's delivery on Pro Day was "significantly more compact" than it was at the Combine.

Bills general manager Doug Whaley says Stanford QB Kevin Hogan is the most NFL-ready quarterback in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Whaley explained that he thinks so because Hogan ran Stanford's NFL-like system in college. That's not really the takeaway here. The takeaway that this is just another dispatch in a long line of them indicating that Whaley and the Bills really, really like Hogan. What's odd is that this interest keeps reaching the public's ears. Either Whaley is bizarrely sending smokescreens about a QB who won't go until Day 3, or he simply doesn't care that he's showing his competitors one of his cards going into April's big poker game.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that Bills general manager Doug Whaley and director of college scouting were on hand to check out QB Kevin Hogan at Stanford's Pro Day last week.

Pauline has been reporting all winter that Buffalo is highly intrigued by Hogan as a developmental play. Hogan has likely only bolstered the interest by laboring to shorten his elongated throwing motion in recent months. At his Pro Day workout, Hogan "threw the ball well and was on point and accurate with his passes throughout the workout," wrote Pauline. "I'm told while he still has a slight wind-up, Hogan's delivery is significantly more compact than it was last season or during the Senior Bowl and much better than the Combine."

Rumor has it that Stanford QB Kevin Hogan has shortened his throwing motion with the help of a QB coach, reports TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Hogan's work with veteran NFL coach John Ramsdell has resulted in "a hastened release and better velocity on passes," writes Pauline. "Teams believe Hogan has a great upside and will be a better pro passer than college thrower. A good throwing workout on Saturday will further improve his draft stock, which is seemingly on the rise." While Hogan's frame, arm strength and pass velocity always impressed, his theatrical windup and slow delivery dampened enthusiasm about his NFL potential. If he's solved that issue, a corresponding stock increase will naturally follow.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline's heard whispers that the Bills will consider Stanford QB Kevin Hogan in the later rounds if they don't select a quarterback earlier in the draft.

"I was informed the [Bills] came away from the Senior Bowl very impressed with his athleticism," Pauline writes, "as well as his arm strength and really like his next level potential." Just on a pure statistical level, Hogan's progression in college has been of the promising variety. In 2015, he posted career-bests almost across the board, throwing for 2,867 yards (67.8% completions) with a 27/8 TD/INT ratio. The 6-foot-4, 225-pounder threw for more yards in 2015 than he did in 2014, despite logging 48 fewer pass attempts. That's due mostly to his sterling 9.4 YPA.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that the Patriots interviewed Stanford QB Kevin Hogan at the Senior Bowl.

"Type of athletic quarterback prospect they like to develop," he wrote. Rotoworld's Josh Norris has taken a shining to Hogan as a developmental prospect. "Hogan’s entire throwing process looks ugly, but it works for him," he wrote. "He is much better than I previously gave him credit for." The 6-foot-4, 225-pounder threw for 2,867 yards (67.8 percent completions, 9.4 YPA) with a 27/8 TD/INT ratio in 2015.
