Mark Sanchez, who was decent but far from spectacular, or Georgia's Matthew Stafford, the top-rated passer who ran a solid 40-yard dash (low 4.8s) but declined to throw here with the rest of the draft's quarterbacks.
-- Southern Cal's Sanchez did nothing to make anyone believe he's top 10 material at this point. He struggled quite a bit on passes he threw outside the numbers, near the sidelines, and only looked great on slant patterns. I expect any potential chatter about Sanchez being a real option for the Lions at No. 1 to all but evaporate unless he has a boffo pro day workout next month.
-- Kansas State quarterback Josh Freeman was thought to be someone who could really improve his draft projection based on his throwing session, but he was erratic in the drills and probably did nothing to help himself crack the first round.
-- Ball State quarterback Nate Davis wasn't too impressive either and is probably still in the range of the third round in terms of his draft status.

White won't even be a Day One pick... who cares about this.
Yeah, i don't care about White either, but the fact the other QBs pretty much sucked does help cassel's stock. Hopefully teams now get into a bidding war and maybe we can get some pretty good picks. I do think he'll be a day one pick, but hust not a threat for Cassel in any kind of way
I think some team is going to find a gem in Pat White, for some reason. He probably won't go until late Day 1 or Day 2 and won't have a defined position but the guy is wicked fast and didn't have a defined position in college. He was a running back that could throw the ball as well. He's also shifty and has pretty good instincts.

All of this was true. Pat White out-combined Mark Sanchez. I watched all of it, both of their 40's, the quick-out and quick-in-cut throws as well as the deep sideline fades. Pat White was much more accurate and had as much zip on his ball than Sanchez. White's arm was impressive and accurate.
No question, Sanchez needs work, whoever takes him better be prepared for alot of growing pains. I'm sure Stafford is going to really impress on his pro-day and will cement his spot over Sanchez, but I think after yesterday's showing, that's already the case, and really was anyway even before the combine. Sanchez has a strong arm, but the accuracy was off. He needs work and a team that has alot of patience.
Regardless, it's all meaningless as someone pointed out, because Pat White will be drafted as a "specialist" and only that. A guy that can Wild Cat, option and put on alot of different hats. He will be a major asset to whoever takes him. The kid really impressed me. His height kills him, like everything else in life when it comes to sports "height is everything".
That still doesn't take away from the fact that he kicked Sanchez's tail at the combine..............
An unknown from small, obsure Liberty College in SC he arrived, the Greatest TE of his era and my All Time Favorite Patriot he left.

Totally agree -- this is a VERY weak QB class. The fact that the only guy who made a real impression is just 6'0" 197 (compared to last year's combine stars like Flacco & O'Connell) has to be sobering for QB-hungry teams.
No matter how they try ot cut it , ther si no first round QB in thsi draft.
Teher mayno t be a second round QB either.
Stafford is young, shorter then thought, and inaccurate in his throws.
Sanchez looks like a second day QB pick. Freeman the JESTS big hope at #17, is a sixth or seventh rounder.
All these obsrvations are based on a "normal" year. Some doofus teams wil still pick them and weil be still looking for a QB three years later, and getting ready to draft ano0ther one. Things never change.
