Biography: Texas transfer who's started the past three seasons for Tulsa, winning all-conference honors after his senior and junior campaigns. Totals last year included 63.3%/3090 yards/28 TDs/12 interceptions after he had 59.8%/3658/31/10 the prior year.
Positives: Smart, poised passer with great awareness on the field. Sells ball fakes, buys time for receivers and easily gets outside the pocket to make throws on the move. Knows where his receivers are on the field, keeps defenses guessing and does a tremendous job leading the offense. Possesses a quick release and gets velocity on short and intermediate passes. Senses pressure, takes off up the field and is elusive carrying the ball. Relatively accurate throwing on the move. Gives receivers a chance and rarely has them reaching for errant throws.
Negatives: Releases the ball off his back foot too often. Does not put air under deep passes. Struggles with his downfield accuracy and doesn?t throw tight spirals. Forces passes to covered receivers. Played in a timing offense that did not often ask him to throw the ball downfield.
Analysis: Kinne was a productive passer and terrific leader at Tulsa. He offers the skill set necessary to be a backup for a timing or West Coast offense at the next level.
