Additional Highlights from the 2024 NFL Combine

Quarterback Prospects

The NFL Combine concluded for quarterbacks1. The perceived top three prospects – USC’s Caleb Williams, North Carolina’s Drake Maye, and LSU’s Jayden Daniels – did not throw or do athletic testing, which opened the door for others, such as Michigan’s J.J. McCarthy, to move up the board.

Noteworthy Performances

Caleb Williams : Williams handled all the difficult questions with grace. He showed a bit of his personality, jumping in the media scrum of his teammate, wide receiver Brenden Rice1.

Jayden Daniels : Daniels did not take part in measurements at the NFL Combine. His LSU Pro Day will be the first live exposure key NFL decision-makers have of him and his teammate, wide receiver Malik Nabers1.

Drake Maye : Maye did not take part in any athletic testing or on-field drills. He is opting to wait and perform at his Pro Day later this month.

J.J. McCarthy : McCarthy registered the second-highest velocity on the day, and that showed on deep balls1.

Michael Penix Jr : Penix was on target for most of the night. one errant throw and refused to leave the throwing line and corrected himself on the following throw.

Other Winners

Devin Leary : Leary threw with timing and touch at the combine. His senior season at Kentucky may not have gone as hoped, but Leary was able to re-establish some positive momentum in Indianapolis.
