This is the 2016 NFL Combine Stock Report for the quarterbacks. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.
Connor Cook, QB, Michigan State
Connor Cook didn't do anything physically wrong at the Combine, but he has reportedly drawn some major red flags amongst several teams. There's a growing concern about him not being one of Michigan State's team captains. If that sounds silly to you, the trepidation is definitely real, and it's not like Cook did anything spectacular in Indianapolis to help offset that. He was just OK, so he might be destined for the third round, which is where I currently have him in my 2016 NFL Mock Draft.
Christian Hackenberg, QB, Penn State
Christian Hackenberg is coming off two horrific seasons, so he needed to take advantage of the Combine to get his draft stock back on track. While Hackenberg didn't have an awful showing in Indianapolis, he was pretty uneven. He made some nice throws in the drills, but also was guilty of some poor attempts as well. Hackenberg did run a nice 40, but I don't really see that helping him all that much.
Jared Goff, QB, California
Jared Goff had a solid showing in the passing drills, but there are three reasons why he's getting a stock-down arrow: First, quite simply, he was not as good as Carson Wentz, who is now the overwhelming favorite to be chosen No. 2 overall. Second, as Charlie Campbell tweeted, Goff didn't interview very well. Once again, Wentz was better in this regard. And third, Goff's 9-inch hands will hurt him a bit. He'll still be chosen in the top half of the opening round, in all likelihood, but the Browns have announced that they want their quarterback to have large hands, so under those guidelines, Goff has been ruled out for them.
Cardale Jones, QB, Ohio State
Like Christian Hackenberg, Cardale Jones needed a strong Combine showing to help offset a rocky finish to his collegiate career. Unfortunately, Jones never got a chance, as he tweaked his hamstring during his second 40 attempt. He had to sit out as a result.
Carson Wentz, QB, North Dakota State
Of all the offensive players, Carson Wentz was the one who won the Combine. Wentz was the best quarterback in the drills, and it wasn't even close. Wentz did more than that though; he interviewed extremely well, according to our sources, and the Browns apparently love him. It's becoming quite evident that he'll be the second pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
