QB – 2020 NFL Scouting Combine Results

NFL Scouting Combine

Joe Burrow of L.S.U. is the presumptive #1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft and opted not to throw or participate in workouts but by all accounts was extremely impressive in interviews with teams.  A minor red flag did pop up at the weigh-in with Burrow’s hands measuring on the small side at just 9 inches.  However, there weren’t any issues with ball handling or ball security on film despite playing in hot, humid conditions in the bayou so it seems like must ado about nothing.  Burrow sure took it in stride.



Tua Tagovailoa of Alabama wasn’t able to take part in any of the physical testing because he’s still recovering from a season-ending hip injury.  All indications from the medical checkups, which spanned nearly ten hours, were extremely positive though.  Tagovailoa is on pace to go through a full workout for teams on April 9 and will try to secure a spot in the Top 3-5 overall.

When it comes to what took place on the field the cream of the crop lived up to lofty expectations.  Justin Herbert of Oregon followed up an MVP performance at the Senior Bowl with another strong showing in Indy.  This was an ideal setting for Herbert to impress and he displayed all the physical tools evaluators look for in a franchise signal caller, including prototypical size, terrific athleticism and an extremely strong arm.  Concerns about the disconnect between Herbert’s immense talent and the results on game day still linger but he’s making it awfully easy for teams to dream on the best-case scenario.  Jordan Love of Utah St. continues to do a great job of helping the scouting community overlook a lackluster final college season.  Even though the film was much better in 2018 than 2019 all of the physical tools were evident in Love’s workout and he possesses top of the draft upside.  Love is generating a lot of buzz and indications are he’s trending toward a spot in the Top 10-15 overall.  It’s shaping up to be an interesting battle to be the third quarterback off the board between Herbert and Love.

Other Notes:

There were reports that Jacob Eason of Washington wasn’t particularly impressive in interviews with teams.  This is an interesting development because Eason was already one of the most polarizing prospects in this class due to a limited track record and lack of overall polish.  Eason flashed his rare arm strength in the throwing drills but if teams are worried about his intangibles and ability to maximize that potential it could push him down draft boards. … As expected Jake Fromm of Georgia was far from the most physically talented passer in town and those shortcomings were quite evident.  Fromm compensated with a mastery of the nuances of the position like touch, timing and accuracy and by doing all the little things though.  Fromm isn’t going to be a fit for every team or system but can be effective in the right situation.  It may just be a matter of whether that’s as a starter or career backup. … Jalen Hurts of Oklahoma seems to be making gradual improvement as a passer, from his senior season to the Senior Bowl and now at the Scouting Combine.  While there were some ups and downs in the throwing portion of the workout Hurts is a great athlete who can really spin the ball and there are no doubts about his character and intangibles.  I personally see Hurts as developmental signal caller with a Round 4-5 grade but wouldn’t be shocked if a team falls in love and pulls the trigger on Day 2.
