Christian Ponder has been doing what needs to be done to keep his name in the mouths of many draft experts.
He performed excellent at the Senior Bowl, nabbing the MVP award, and also put up solid numbers at the NFL Combine.
His last step is to showcase his talents at FSU’s pro day.
Ponder is a very polished QB that has years of experience and leadership capabilities, but it’s his health that many scouts will want to keep their eye on.
Ponder will need to continue to show scouts that his injury issues are a thing of the past and a good performance on March 16th will surely help solidify this point.
Ponder is an excellent pocket passer, something most NFL teams covet when drafting a QB, but he will need to refine his all-around game to get his name in talks for the first round.
Entering the season, Ponder was a lock to be a first round selection, but as the season ensued and injuries piled up, his stock plummeted.
Now it’s Ponder’s time to prove all the doubters wrong and show that he is worth a middle of round one selection in the upcoming 2011 NFL Draft.
