LSU’s Russell standing tall

first_img“I started playing football at the age of six,” Russell said. “I’ve been playing quarterback ever since. I was always bigger and taller than other kids. I was always able to throw it a pretty good length of the field.” As he talked, Russell inadvertently may have raised a flag to the Oakland Raiders, who have the No. 1 overall draft pick and are in need of a quarterback. Russell’s size enables him to shake off would-be sacks and finish off throws downfield. And when he throws, he can be Elway-like in both velocity and distance. When asked how far he can throw, Russell uncomfortably ducked his head and quietly said 83, 84 yards. In the days leading up to the combine, Russell became the consensus No. 1 pick while Brady Quinn’s projections slipped to the bottom half of the top 10. “It’s kind of hard for a guy to slip when we haven’t done anything,” Quinn said. “I didn’t play a game for the past couple months. It’s kind of funny to sit back and hear some of that and you’re thinking, `Man, did I not like lift today? Did somebody in the weight room see me miss a rep?’ I’m kind of confused.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Russell’s strong Sugar Bowl performance for Louisiana State propelled him from relative obscurity to leaving Notre Dame’s Brady Quinn in his wake on his way to the No. 1 pick on every expert’s NFL mock draft board. As he was getting ready to address the media last week at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis, Russell jokingly was introduced as a defensive lineman by former Dallas Cowboys executive Gil Brandt. center_img DENVER – JaMarcus Russell, standing just a hair taller than 6-foot-5 and weighing 265 pounds, draws double takes from first-time football observers.
