Here are the quarterbacks Colts will be able to watch throw at the Combine
As the Indianapolis Colts get to know the top quarterback prospects at the 2023 Combine, Indy will only be able to see some of the top guys throw.
The 2023 NFL Scouting Combine starts on Tuesday, February 28, and will run until Monday, March 6. This week-long event will give all the NFL teams a chance to get familiar with the top prospects and better evaluate their talent. For the Indianapolis Colts, it’ll give them the opportunity to meet with all of the prospective quarterbacks and start getting an idea of what they’ll do with their No. 4 pick.
While the meetings with the prospects will be very impactful, the majority of the prospects will be participating in several tests to measure their athleticism and also be doing some position specific drills. For the quarterbacks, that means throwing the football to all of the pass catchers in attendance. However, not all quarterbacks will be throwing at the combine. The Colts will have to wait until pro days to see some prospective quarterbacks throw.
What quarterbacks are throwing at the Combine?
Of the top quarterback prospects, it has been reported that Ohio State’s CJ Stroud, Kentucky’s Will Levis, and Florida’s Anthony Richardson, will throw at this year’s Combine. Bryce Young, however, who many consider the top quarterback in the class, will be present at the Combine and taking part in other activities but he won’t be throwing. Young will wait until Alabama’s pro day to throw in front of scouts.
When will quarterbacks throw at the Combine?
Saturday is the day that quarterbacks, receivers, and tight ends will do all of their athletic tests and on-field work. That’s the day that Stroud, Richardson, and Levis will be able to show off their throwing abilities. This will all be available for fans to watch as well on NFL Network and the NFL’s official website and app.
With the Colts almost certainly taking a quarterback at the top of the draft, Saturday will be a big day for evaluation. With all of the prospects still having their pro days ahead, their combine performances won’t necessarily be make-or-break but they can have a major impact on their draft stock. For Bryce Young, not throwing isn’t going to hurt his draft stock, especially since he plans to throw at his pro day. Additionally, there aren’t many questions about his arm or throwing ability. The biggest questions for Young this week is what will his height and weight be.
Everyone already knows that Bryce Young is considered undersized, they just want to know how undersized and if his measurements can really impact his chances of being the first quarterback taken in the 2023 NFL Draft.
