Why Sam Darnold decided not to throw at National Football League combine

"Hue Jackson is a great guy".

His brother Shaquill, who was drafted in the third round by the Seattle Seahawks previous year, managed only 17 reps 12 months ago. Nonetheless, they are. So, what's their plan?

Notes: More than a month after Washington State quarterback Tyler Hilinski committed suicide, the Cougars' departing starter, Luke Falk, acknowledged he's still shaken by the event. DeShone Kizer clearly isn't cutting it. Kevin Hogan didn't do much better filling in.

Furthermore, would the Broncos be better off drafting one of them rather than Uber a Brinks truck to Kirk Cousins or Case Keenum?

I spoke to an AFC scout who doesn't think Mayfield - listed at only 6 feet - is good enough to warrant a top-15 pick.

The former USC quarterback is among the 2018 NFL Draft's top prospects, with some mock drafts projecting him to go as high as No. 1 to the Cleveland Browns.

As for the height question, Mayfield cited some success stories before finishing: "If you want to see anything else, I've got three years of tape to prove it".

"In regards to turning the ball over, the No. 1 priority of a quarterback is to protect the football".

Now let's see him hit a moving target with a steak. He no longer has to convince anyone to look his way.

For Josh Allen, Jordan Palmer was the right choice, in his mind, to fill this important role.

According to Andrew Mason of DenverBroncos.com, Mayfield thinks Brown should be judged by what he did while playing and not by his underwhelming time doing something in a workout that he's not going to do in an actual game.

Rosen is the best pure thrower of the football.

2017 Heisman Trophy victor Baker Mayfield of the Oklahoma Sooners might be the most peculiar case of potential first-round quarterbacks.

Neither does center Scott Quessenberry, who labeled as unfair the negative rap of Rosen "because of the type of guy that he is and the type of stand-up human being that he is, and the type of pro that he's going to be". There's a knock on the door and we know one of us or both of are gone with the knock.

Rosen completed 62.6 percent of his throws as a junior in 2017, tossing 26 touchdowns against 10 picks on a talent-deficient Bruins team that often required him to play from behind. Drew Brees is 6'0.

"There's still some things to improve in my footwork", he said.

But, hey, who says beggars can't be choosers?

There's concern about his accuracy and ability to find the open receiver before the window closes, but when it was time for the quarterbacks to take the stage in Indianapolis, Allen was its lead performer.

"It's going to be a different Lamar", Jackson said.

"You want people who fit our culture", said GM Brandon Beane. You'd love to have a young player that you're developing, maybe two of those kind of players in your room.

The destination for all National Football League-related video on the web. They question, for example, the player's competitiveness. "That's what you hope to have". They need just about everything, so selecting a defensive player or offensive lineman would help contribute to their upcoming one-win season.

In the meantime, he'll continue working on accuracy - something on which Jackson places a premium. They did worse. So, he's jumping.

"I was begging teams for a scholarship", Allen said. "When? Everybody wants to know when. That's what I plan to do". "I would just be happy and make the most of any opportunity". That's not going to change... "I've just got to show off my arm - because that's where they're doubting me".
