5 Quarterback’s that can help themselves at the NFL Combine

QB Brock Osweiler, Arizona State – Some people didn’t expect Osweiler to come out early and some question if being over 6-7 will effect his mobility. One thing we know is that he has a strong arm and can make all the throws, but, he needs to show touch on the ball at the combine in order to move up team's draft boards.

QB Darron Thomas, Oregon – It was a shock to many when Thomas decided to come out early for the NFL Draft. These people think he is too raw of a passer and that he needs his senior year to develop before taking his skills to the NFL.  His athleticism should rank him high among the "Athletes", but his real test will come in the throwing drills to see if he can make all of the NFL throws and that his success wasn’t a product of Oregon's system.

QB BJ Coleman, Tennessee - Chattanooga- Coleman was one of the higher rated senior quarterbacks in the spring but ended up hurting his shoulder and missed a good amount of time this past season.  He showed well at the East-West Shrine game and the medical part of the NFL combine will be just as important as what he does on the field.

QB Aaron Corp, Richmond – Corp transferred from USC to Richmond and had some success there but not as much as you would expect from a blue chip high school recruit who was a starter at USC.  At the Players All-Star Classic he showed why NFL teams are interested in him as he can make all the throws and showed good athletic ability. With a solid showing at the NFL combine he could move his stock up.

QB Jordan Jefferson, LSU – Jefferson had some well documented off the field issues and the biggest part of the NFL Combine for him will be the interview process. We all know that Jordan has the physical tools. At the Players All-Star Classic he showed his off his arm and legs in the practices and in the game. Fortunately, he was a  late add to the NFL Combine and with a good showing in the interview rooms his stock could be on the rise.
