Saturday was a big day for quarterbacks at the NFL combine as they worked out on the field in front of scouts, coaches and executives.
Speaking afterwards, NFL Media draft analyst Mike Mayock, who broadcasted the event all day on NFL Network, shared which quarterback he thought stood out -- and it isn't a player at the top of many draft boards.
“The one guy that jumped out today, and I knew he would because he has arm talent, is Tanner Lee from Nebraska," he said. "So in a pair of shorts he’s always going to look good. His issues were more bad decisions and bad throws in games, but today, in that format, Tanner Lee looked great.”
This past fall, as a junior, Lee had a 58 percent completion percentage for 3,143 yards with 23 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. He's expected to be a late round pick, if he gets selected at all.
As for the three-cone drill, Quinton Flowers (6.81 seconds) from South Florida was first, followed by Wyoming's Josh Allen (6.90 seconds) and Toledo's Logan Woodside (6.94 seconds). Kyle Lauletta from Richmond was fourth at 6.95 seconds.
Flowers also had the best 40-yard dash time at 4.63 seconds. As for Lauletta, he ran in a time of 4.81 seconds, which was sixth.
These agility drills don't mean much for quarterbacks, but Lauletta was able to display his athletic ability.
