NFL Combine Sunday: Quarterbacks and Receivers

Dumont WalkerSenior Analyst IFebruary 22, 2009

It's Sunday at the NFL Combine and today we are watching the last batch of the quarterbacks as well as some of the receivers going through their routines.

People to note today is USC's Mark Sanchez who is throwing and going through the workouts today. Matt Stafford of Georgia will not be throwing today.

Another interesting note for all you UVA fans, Kevin Ogletree ran a 4.37 40 yard dash, tied for ninth among receivers and tied him with super receiver Percy Harvin.

Another big note from the combine so far has been the fate of star wide out Michael Crabtree. It was determined yesterday that Crabtree has a stress fracture in his foot. The injury will keep the youngster from running at this years NFL Combine. However, he has stated that he will run at the Texas Tech pro day in March. After that, he will elect to have surgery on his injured foot. Another interesting note about this story is it means that Michael Crabtree has still not been clocked in a 40-yard dash.

Watching QB drills right now. It's amazing at how many of these QB's are struggling with the 5-7 step drops. That's a direct correlation to them running a spread offense.

Pat White is impressing me right now. His arm strength is better than I thought, and despite being an option QB, his football is great.

Mark Sanchez does not look good. He is missing a lot of throws that QB of his caliber should be making. He is sailing his passes. I also don't like his delivery. Right now Stafford is the better pick in my books. But I guess, I am just comfirming what i already thought.

Mark Sanchez has under thrown all his deep balls. Simply not impressive.

Pat White looks like he could be a starting NFL QB.

Jon Gruden just took a dig at Phil and Chris Simms.

The quarterbacks are off the field and now we are getting ready to watch some RB's do some running.

Overall this years QB class is kinda weak. In all honesty Pat White has been the best I have seen thus far. Sanchez has worked his way out of the top of my draft board. I had the Jets looking at him, be in all honesty I'd consider droping him even farther than that. All in all, I don't think there is a true franchise QB in the draft this year.
