Andrew Luck? Not throwing. Robert Griffin lll? Ditto. What about Ryan Tannehill? You guessed it, he's not throwing either. Russell Wilson and Kirk Cousins? They're throwing! Sunday is the day when quarterbacks will try to impress NFL scouts at the NFL Scouting Combine.
Two quarterbacks have taken their opportunity to the next level. Michigan State's Kirk Cousins and Wisconsin's Russell Wilson have been working out with IMG's Chris Weinkie the past seven weeks.
The former Carolina Panther and Florida State quarterback says Wilson and Cousins have an excellent chance of impressing the NFL brass on Sunday.
Weinke, who is now the Director of the IMG Madden Football Academy, rented a gym late Saturday night to give his two pupils one final workout before the biggest day of their athletic lives.
In a scene out of a spy thriller, Kirk Cousins and Russell Wilson arrived at the gym a few miles from Lucas Oil Stadium. On a bitter February night, they methodically went through their final drills, hanging on every final piece of advice their mentor, Chris Weinke had to offer.
Weinke has worked on throwing mechanics, mental toughness and overall preparation for being an NFL QB with the two collegian stars.
Now, it's go-time. Weinke says they are ready and will be great NFL QBs. Now, it's up to Russell Wilson and Kirk Cousins to turn their dreams into reality.
