2013 NFL Combine: Stock Report - Quarterbacks
Matt Barkley, QB, USC
There was some speculation that Matt Barkley would measure in shorter than 6-2, but that was hardly the case. Barkley was 6-3, 227 at Friday's weigh-in with 10-inch hands. He also handled himself well at the press conference, which is key because NFL teams are growing tired of USC "Hollywood star" quarterbacks.
Tyler Bray, QB, Tennessee
Tyler Bray was listed at 215 pounds at Tennessee, so it was shocking to see him put on 17 pounds of muscle for the Combine. Bray, now 232, needs to continue to show teams that he has moved past his maturity issues.
FEB. 25 UPDATE: Bray was one of the winners of Sunday's Combine workouts. He looked like one of the top quarterbacks on the field. He can make all of the throws, which will likely entice some team into taking him in the second round.
Mike Glennon, QB, N.C. State
Mike Glennon put on five pounds since the Combine, now weighing 225 pounds. Five pounds may not sound like much, but every bit counts considering his rail-thin frame.
FEB. 25 UPDATE: Glennon looked pretty awful during the field drills at the Combine. According to BuffaloBills.com, one general manager said that Glennon has a "long way to go."
E.J. Manuel, QB, Florida State
E.J. Manuel looked at the part at 6-5, 237 pounds with 10 3/8-inch hands. He was even better in front of the media. He was well-spoken and generated nothing but glowing reviews. He helped his potential second-round status; I have him going to the Eagles there in my 2013 NFL Mock Draft.
FEB. 25 UPDATE: E.J. Manuel was one of the top quarterbacks at the Combine. He was also awesome in the Senior Bowl, so he has a good chance of being selected in Round 2. I've had him going there for a while to the Eagles in my 2013 NFL Mock Draft.
Sean Renfree, QB, Duke
Sean Renfree had a decent weigh-in - 6-3, 219 with 9-inch hands - but the real reason he's getting a stock up is because he's generated so much buzz among the media as a late-round sleeper. He could creep toward the beginning of Day 3 with a solid showing Sunday.
Matt Scott, QB, Arizona
Matt Scott has been dubbed as a sleeper by many after a successful Combine performance. In addition to throwing well, Scott had the fastest 10-yard split (1.58) during his 40-yard dash (4.66). With more teams looking to run the read-option offense, Scott could be targeted as early as Round 3.
Tyler Wilson, QB, Arkansas
Charlie and I discussed this when covering the Senior Bowl, but Tyler Wilson's hand size is a problem. His hands, 8 3/4 inches, were the smallest among all of the quarterbacks at the Combine. Small hands translate to fumbles, so some teams might be turned off by this.
I agree with you on the Packers + 5 but you're either out to lunch or smoking crack about the Steelers. Brady has and will continue to master Pittsburgh as they have before. If I'm wrong I'm sure you'll post this.
Mock I have been developing in various iterations. Did a trade, and was drafting based on data I've gathered via watching college games, NFL games, reading mock drafts, and my own internal evaluations. Please, feedback is always welcome.
