Hip surgery for Brennan; opportunity for Tharp

Former Hawaii QB Colt Brennan will need surgery on his injured hip, but he does not expect the injury to affect his draft least not as much as being a "system quarterback."

Brennan's injury didn't prevent him from working out at the NFL Scouting Combine last month, and he also will compete in passing drills at Hawaii's pro day at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif.

"You won't notice anything wrong with my passing," said Brennan, who owns the NCAA record for career passing touchdowns.

Where Colt Brennan sees frustration, Taylor Tharp sees opportunity. The former Boise State signal caller is now the frontrunner for the WAC quarterback most likely to get drafted and never see any NFL playing time.
