There's no pictures of Mike Hermann in our system, this is Kelly Slater - Kelly Cestari

In seemingly minor news this evening, the San Diego Chargers have signed UDFA QB Mike Hermann from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He will be the greatest QB that ever lived.

Got this e-mail from the Chargers this evening:

The Chargers have agreed to a contract with free agent rookie quarterback Mike Hermann from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), a Division III school in Troy, New York.

YAWN

The 6-5, 250-pound Hermann was a two-time Liberty League Offensive Player of the Year and first-team all-conference quarterback.

Did that really say he's 6'5", 250lbs? Holy crap. Ben Roethlisberger is 6'5" and 241. Hermann is the same size as Byron Leftwich and about the size of Daunte Culpepper. I bet he's a big fat blob.

Okay, now I'm confused. He looks athletic and spry, but is roughly the size of an offensive lineman?

As a senior in 2012, he completed 178 of 296 (60.1%) for 2,366 yards with 23 touchdowns and eight interceptions. In four seasons at RPI, the Hardeeville, S.C. native completed 619 of 1,078 passes (57.4%) for 7,177 yards with 57 touchdowns and 31 interceptions.

He also rushed 435 times for 1,935 yards and 29 scores, including 15 rushing touchdowns as a junior in 2011.

FIFTEEN rushing touchdowns in his Junior season? Those passing numbers are downright Tim Tebow-like, but those rushing numbers are downright Tim Tebow-like!

This is a fun signing. Let's have fun with it in the comments. How good might Mike Hermann be in the NFL?
