This is the 2018 NFL Combine Stock Report for the quarterbacks. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.
Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming
Josh Allen drew lots of acclaim for his amazing arm strength. Allen was routinely firing balls 70 and 80 yards downfield with seemingly very little effort. However, we all knew he could do this. Allen has the strongest arm of a quarterback in the NFL Draft in at least a decade. The concerns with Allen, however, are his accuracy and anticipation, and the latter seemed to be a huge problem for him Saturday, as he waited a very long time to deliver some of his passes. This is definitely a concern, and Allen must be coached up by a great staff, or he'll be a bust.
J.T. Barrett, QB, Ohio State
J.T. Barrett didn't look like a professional quarterback. It didn't seem like he belonged, as he displayed some poor arm strength in the passing drills.
Luke Falk, QB, Washington State
Some teams asked Lamar Jackson to do receiving drills. Perhaps other teams should've asked Luke Falk to participate in punting drills. Falk was the worst quarterback at the combine, as his accuracy was horrendous. He missed on way too many throws, and it's difficult to envision him being drafted prior to Day 3.
Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma
Baker Mayfield was solid in the passing drills, but that was to be expected. A couple of deep throws got away from him, but short and mid-range accuracy were excellent. The reason he's getting a stock-up arrow is because he absolutely aced the interviews. Mayfield has that "it" factor, and teams have learned this. There could be numerous teams attempting to trade into the top 10 to acquire him. I expect the Dolphins, Saints and Bills to attempt to do so.
Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA ???
I wanted to mention Josh Rosen. The UCLA quarterback had some amazing throws in the drills, but also missed on some passes as well. Overall, it was a slightly above average day by his standards, so I can't give him a stock-up arrow. There's a chance, however, that he'll get a stock-down arrow eventually. This will depend on how he performed in the interviews, which was paramount for him. Hopefully we can have an update from our sources on this in the near future.
Mason Rudolph, QB, Oklahoma State
Mason Rudolph was unimpressive in the combine passing drills, which is not a surprise. There's fear that Rudolph was a product of Oklahoma State's system, and there's concern about his arm strength. The latter issue was apparent Saturday, as Rudolph underthrew several receivers.
Nic Shimonek, QB, Texas Tech
I'd say Nic Shimonek was the best third-day quarterback prospect at the combine. Shimonek showed off his arm, throwing some fantastic deep passes in the drills. Thanks to this performance, Shimonek could creep into fourth-round territory.
