Each year the Quarterback position seems to be evaluated and criticized more so than any position in the National Football League. Is this because the Quarterback position is considered the “biggest asset” to each team? Or perhaps because they typically receive the largest contracts in the NFL year in and year out? All that can be left up for opinion.

The NFL Combine gives NFL executives around the league a look at potential draft picks and how they function on the field with basic to intermediate drills, how well they can interview with GM’s and owners, and their overall physical appearance is evaluated to a larger extent as well.  The NFL Combine for college football players is considered to be the biggest interview of their life.  Every waking moment they have focused on football will boil down to their performance in Indy every year.  For this year, there are four Quarterbacks that could heavily impact their draft stock based on their showing at the NFL Combine.
