Quarterbacks At Combine Not Lacking In Confidence

  • Giants quarterback Eli Manning waves to the fans

Maybe not like his own class in 1983, which produced three Hall of Famers in himself, Dan Marino and Jim Kelly, but this year's crop of quarterbacks is filled with intrigue and promise. However, with so much to potentially gain, and so many National Football League minds to sway, Allen and Mayfield eagerly put their skills on display on Saturday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

Kirk Cousins or Sam Darnold? Josh Allen, you have the accuracy issues.

"With Alex Cappa having 32 5/8" arms he'll be moved inside to guard in the NFL", NFL scout Greg Gabriel wrote on Twitter.

If the Broncos aren't able to get the deal they want with one of those guys, the draft offers some intriguing options. The UCLA quarterback is a strong candidate to be the No. 1 overall pick, and the Browns hold both that pick and a desperate need for an upgrade at quarterback. "I can sit in the pocket and really pick defenses apart".

"I'm up front and honest and tell people exactly what I'm about". "That kid ought to want to get up before or after [Josh] Rosen, Lamar Jackson, all those guys, and show I'm as good if not better".

The on-field throwing session is the quarterbacks' final part of the combine, before they head to the airport to take flights out of town. To all appearances, they will come across as talented and confident. "Clean" is a description that multiple scouts have used to describe Darnold.

Rosen, too, seemed intent to show he is the most ready to lift one of the teams near the top of the draft board. That was evident again Friday when he was asked by the media if he was the top quarterback in the group.

"Whether it's a pro free agent or a college player, the goal is to find that quarterback that you feel very comfortable with to lead your franchise going forward", New York Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan said. Whether it's because for most of his playing career he was seen as undersized, or because he had to overcome being a walk-on at Texas Tech and then transferred to Oklahoma and going through a coaching change, there's a competitive fire in him that appeals to coaches and fans alike.

Boy, that Baker Mayfield is cocky. When they went to the 50-yard deep routes where Allen excelled, Jackson's first attempt was wobbly and well short of his receiver. "I've never been like that and I never will. I'm going to do that on a person-by-person basis". "You see the release, and it's good to see it live and how the ball comes off". And I know that. "But obviously they are working with guys they haven't worked with, so it's tough to anticipate". Even over Darnold, Allen, and Mayfield. Charisma and confidence he doesn't lack.

So, should the Browns be looking into Allen more?

Rosen and Mayfield didn't do much to distance themselves from each other.

Yeah, I wouldn't want to follow Allen's arm either. "His ability to anticipate passing windows, his ability to create outside of structure and that athleticism where he can evade the rush, keep his eyes downfield and still make plays".

Mayfield would rank the prospects differently, of course. Also a different kind of quarterback. Which flavor, if any, will they choose.

According to the NFL's Daniel Jeremiah, LSU wide receiver D.J. Chark was in the second-round range before Saturday.
