2022 NFL Scouting Combine Preview: Quarterback
The quarterback class typically tops the NFL Draft, but it will be interesting to see how much of that is this year.
There’s no generational talent in this draft like there has been the last two with Trevor Lawrence and Joe Burrow, but a team that needs a quarterback might fall in love with one of the prospects. this year and play for him at the top of the draft.
Top 5 quarterbacks to watch at the Combine:
1. Matt Corral, Mississippi, 6-2, 205
The top underclass of a group of mostly senior quarterbacks, Corral has all the physical traits that NFL teams love in that position. He has a strong arm and a quick release, and he’s shown terrific accuracy over the past two seasons. He improved his touchdown-to-interception ratio from 2-to-1 as a sophomore to 4-to-1 last season. He threw for 20 touchdowns and also rushed for 633 yards and 11 scores in 2021.
2. Malik Willis, Liberty, 6-1, 225
Willis really helped himself in the Senior Bowl with a solid week in Mobile, showing command, balance and the ability to use his legs as a weapon to go on plays and gain yards. He played to the top competition, which is what NFL talent evaluators really wanted to see from him. He was the best quarterback among the Senior Bowl quarterbacks which included Kenny Pickett, Sam Howell, Desmond Ridder and others. It’s a dual threat weapon with probably the highest cap of any in the class.
