West Virginia quarterback Jarrett Brown told the media that no other quarterback could out-throw him at the NFL Scouting Combine earlier in the week and thus far, he has been correct.

With so many eyes on Cincinnati quarterback Tony Pike, Brown has been the impressive one so far in the various throwing drills in Indianapolis.

Brown's measurements have him standing at 6'2.875" and 224 pounds which is a very good for the current "standard" for NFL quarterbacks.

His hands were the second biggest at 10" and is very important when it comes to the grip on the ball when throwing.

Also, Brown ran an unofficial 40-yard dash time of 4.53, which is the fastest time among all quarterbacks.

Only a one year starter in 2009, Browns had to sit behind former starter and current Miami Dolphin Pat White, but NFL Network analysts all agreed that Brown has a bigger upside than White even though Brown is still in development stages.

With so many top-tier quarterbacks not throwing at the combine, Brown is definitely impressing scouts and coaches which will improve his stock value.

Brown's ability to drive the ball is by far better than others participating in field drills and when he is throwing, scouts and coaches are very interested in what he does since most are seen scribbling notes down on paper more so than for the other quarterbacks.

Currently projected somewhere in the fifth round, but Brown's smooth release and arm strength that was on displays may get him into the the third or fourth round now.
