Analysis

Overview: Drew has established himself in Louisiana state lore with his penchant for winning (a pair of high school state championships and a National Championship his junior year at LSU) and flair (Heisman award winner his senior year). With Louisiana State, he holds the school record in virtually every major passing category (as well as being being sandwiched in between Aaron Murray and Kevin Kolb for most career collegiate passing yards at eighteenth and having the tenth most career passing touchdowns) and has completely revamped the school’s culture as a ground and pound team.

NFL Comparison: Dan Marino with legs

Drew can make every pass on the field and has demonstrated some very heavily pass leaning offenses in high school and college. The separating force would be his legs, which has the potential to greatly expand his game at the next level if he can really tap into that.

SFL Comparison: AJ Caswell

AJ Caswell is not afraid to use his legs aswell as his arm.

Caswell has been one of the best passers in league history, while at the same time displaying some real ability with his legs. Caswell is the only real obvious choice as to who Drew looks like on the field.

Strengths:

  • Winner   
  • Leadership   
  • Athletic
  • Work ethic – first in and last out type of player 

Weaknesses:

  • Questions     on how he would respond to losing – some reports of becoming a difficult teammate following losses at LSU
  • Could struggle with accuracy and decision making in the pro transition
  • Must transition from college to professional offense

Bottom Line: At the end of the day, there is no major concern with TD Drew. He has displayed all he needs to on the field and has demonstrated a game that should transition to the SFL (perhaps with some growing pains, as with any rookie QB – just look at last season’s #1 pick in Xander Gold). All the tools for success are there, it’s just a matter of which team will select him.

The #1 pick experienced a few teething problems in his first SFL season.

Interview

CC: Hey Thomas, what brought you to the SFL?

TD: My need to be battle tested by the best and then beaten them all.

CC: Obviously you’re an accomplished collegiate player, how do you think that will translate to the pro level?

TD: I must hope to finally find a worthy opponent and then beat them.

CC: Who do you model your game after?

TD: I do not, I am crafting a new path to win.

CC: You’re dad was a pro QB himself and your high school coach. What influence has he had on you and your football career?

TD: 100% a guiding force. The two of us have made me a force of nature.

CC: What mark do you hope to leave on the SFL?

TD: A long good tradition of winning along with a history of being the leader my teammates deserve.

CC: What system do you feel most comfortable in on the field?

TD: The system that wins. I will do the work. Learn the plays. Change and adapt to over come any team that will stand in front of me and my team.

CC: How do you think big time college games have prepared you for the SFL?

TD: Go see a night game in Death Vally 110k screaming fans. Most demanding of results.

CC: Has any one coach really stood out to you so far in the draft process from your observation?

TD: honestly I am a rookie and have not met any of them. I am once again starting on the bottom of the ladder and am ready to work for my spot. That said to be a Coach at this level is harder to do than win the lotto. They all are winners.

CC: Should St. Louis take you #1 overall?

TD: Yes, any team that wants to win lots of games should.

CC: Would you prefer for teams to bypass you so a hometown team such as the Pharaohs could select you?

TD: Well, that would be a great result. My dream. But the privilege of having a chance to make a team at the highest level is a blessing.

CC: Given your athletic prowess and an overage at the QB position this season, there’s been rumblings about nearly every QB prospect switching positions. How open are you to that?

TD: I need at least one QB on each team. (For me to battle and beat)

CC: Okay.

CC: Where do you expect to be drafted?

TD: By the team I belong with. Sometime the universe works in strange ways.

CC: Where do you see yourself at the end of the season? How long do you see your career lasting and what will your legacy end up being?

TD: Winning the Championship being MVP of the game the Season, and best Rookie. Not sure what I will leave behind but hope a trail of Beaten foes and a history of hard work and great teammates.
