We've all Seen how little brothers in the NFL can barely succeed or live up to the expectations of there Older Brother's
one of those Younger Brothers i am looking at is Jordan Rodgers Brother of Super Bowl Winning and MVP Aaron Rodgers Now i know your last name doesn't automatically mean success in the NFL But it's a worth looking at the draft not filled with good QB I mean hey look at Mark Sanchez. But I Look at him and say he's a decent QB i good 6th or 7th round pick maybe a Viable Backup because the Jets Need All Help at QB.
So lets Start With Were he came from. Originally Jordan Was a QB Butte JC and walked on to Vanderbilt at his time at Butte JC
Passing GS Yrds TD
2008 5 810 10
2009 12 2,219 19
And Earned a walk on scholarship to Vandy
In His First Year in Vandy he saw no action as he set on the bench as a backup Quarterback.
Rodgers opened the season as the No. 2 quarterback behind Larry Smith, then moved into starting lineup after Smith was injured vs. Georgia... Saw action in all 13 games, earning first starting nod for the Army game... Finished the year with seven starts... His 1,949 yards of total offense rank 14th on Vanderbilt's individual single-season leader board, just ahead of Jay Cutler's freshman campaign in 2002... Topped the squad with 108 completions, 216 pass attempts, 1,524 passing yards and nine passing TDs... Passing total ranks seventh among Vandy junior QBs... Team's second leading rusher with 420 yards on 117 carries... First play from scrimmage of his Commodore career was a 30-yard TD pass to Chris Boyd in the fourth quarter against Elon... First 100-yard passing performance came at Alabama, completing 11-of-18 for 104 yards... Ran for 79 of Commodores' 200 rushing yards against Georgia... Produced first rushing TD and 282 yards of total offense to beat Army... Accounted for four TDs (two rushing, two passing) versus Arkansas... Surpassed 300 yards of total offense (306) for first time vs. Arkansas, amassing 240 passing yards and 66 rushing yards rushing... Bettered that performance at Florida with 317 yards of total offense, including career-high 297 passing yards and two TDs... Also threw two more TDs to defeat Kentucky.
An offensive co-captain, Rodgers has put together one of the finest seasons ever by a Vanderbilt senior quarterback... Has started all 11 games in which he participated, leading team to 7-4 record one of their best seasons in the history of Vanderbilt football... His passing totals - 175 completions, 2,431 yards, 13 touchdowns - rank among the Top Ten single-season performances in Vanderbilt history... Rodgers has completed 59.5% of his passes, the highest percentage by a Commodore quarterback since Jay Cutler's junior season... Has been remarkably consistent during Vanderbilt's six-game win streak, averaging 227 passing yards and nearly two TD passes per game... Has passed for at least 170 yards in every start.... Threw for a season- high 279 yards and two touchdowns to guide Commodores to thrilling 27-26 comeback win at Ole Miss... Also recorded 65 yards and a TD on the ground... Finished the season throwing 10 TDs in the Commodores' final five games... Though just a two-year player, Rodgers will finish his career among the team's Top Ten in virtually every passing and total offense category.
