Opportunity arrives for QBs who decide to throw

INDIANAPOLIS — With five of the top-rated quarterbacks at the NFL Scouting Combine choosing not to participate in throwing drills for various reasons, the door is open for other signal-callers to make names for themselves.

Oregon State’s Sean Canfield and West Virginia’s Jarrett Brown intend on doing just that.

“I want to show off what I have — I have nothing to hide,” Canfield said Friday. “I know a lot of guys have gotten some flak for not wanting to throw or whatever the case. I’ve never been a guy who would not want to do something like that. Throwing is something I love to do.”

Brown echoed those sentiments, laughing when asked about how many QBs will not throw.

“Every scout that I told I was throwing, they were like, ‘Good!'” Brown said with a smile. “I think I will benefit from it (the other QBs not throwing). I will throw any given day, man.”

Canfield and Brown were both at the Senior Bowl, and they flashed some potential in between bouts of inconsistency. A solid showing at the combine under the increased spotlight could help them move up among the second tier of QBs.
