It was an eventful day for the signal callers on the floor of Lucas Oil Stadium today. Several quarterbacks put in top-notch performances and really turned heads. The good most certainly overshadowed the few poor performances. Here’s the breakdown.
|QB||Ryan Colburn||Fresno State||5.24||5.19|
|QB||Jerrod Johnson||Texas A&M||4.75||4.82|
|QB||Christian Ponder||Florida State||4.68||4.69|
|QB||Tyrod Taylor||Virginia Tech||4.54||4.50|
|QB||Jeff Van Camp||Florida Atlantic||4.81||4.81|
|QB||TJ Yates||North Carolina||5.05||4.98|
Ryan Colburn/Fresno State – He showed a marginal arm, threw poor outs and the deep passes floated.
Andy Dalton/TCU – Displayed good timing and accuracy in short area throws and between the numbers. He struggled to throw the outs and deep throws were erratic.
Pat Devlin/Delaware – A short delivery contributed to a lack of velocity, and he overthrew a long ball.
Nathan Enderle/Idaho – He showed great speed on all of his throws. He was relatively accurate but struggled to hit receivers down the field.
Jerrod Johnson/Texas A&M – All over the place with his throws. Receivers were constantly waiting on the ball. Deep passes floated. Pass catchers were constantly waiting for his throws.
Colin Kaepernick/Nevada – Inconsistent. He threw some terrific deep outs yet was all over the place in the short and intermediate field as he sprayed his passes. He seemed to have a much slower delivery than was seen at the Senior Bowl.
Jake Locker/Washington – Significantly improved over his Senior Bowl performance. He was relatively accurate while hitting receivers in stride and rarely had pass catchers adjusting to the football.
Ryan Mallett/Arkansas – Tremendous performance. He showed speed and power with all of his passes and threw with pinpoint accuracy in all areas of the field.
Cam Newton/Auburn – An impressive looking athlete with a major league arm. He made a few nice throws yet showed poor timing for the most part. The majority of his passes sailed over his intended target.
Christian Ponder/Florida State – He showed good speed on his throws, terrific timing and was very accurate. He put zip on the outs and throw the deep out well.
Josh Portis/California (PA) – He displayed good speed on throws with a large degree of accuracy.
Ricky Stanzi/Iowa – He was inconsistent most of the day. He does have a nice delivery and threw some solid passes down the field.
Tyrod Taylor/Virginia Tech – He has a nice delivery. He was inaccurate and inconsistent with his throws for the most part.
Scott Tolzien/Wisconsin – He shows a quick release, his short throws had speed and he put air under deep passes.
Jeff Van Camp/Florida Atlantic – He appeared to be a timing and touch passes that accurate short and between the numbers. Does not show any type of strength in his arm.
T.J. Yates/North Carolina – A timing and touch passer. He doesn’t have a big arm, yet he was accurate down the field.
