In late January, former Florida State quarterback Christian Ponder said that he doesn’t plan to throw at the Scouting Combine.
“I think the plan right now is I’m not going to throw, which most quarterbacks do,” Ponder said in the days prior to the Senior Bowl, per BuffaloBills.com. “Something could change and I could throw, but I will do everything else.”
Something has indeed changed.
Despite being named the MVP of the Senior Bowl, we’re told that Ponder has indeed decided to throw at the Scouting Combine.
He joins guys like Cam Newton, Colin Kaepernick, Jake Locker, Ryan Mallett, Andy Dalton, and Ricky Stanzi, all of whom will throw at the Scouting Combine, as Silva summarized earlier today.
Missouri quarterback Blaine Gabbert is the biggest name to choose not to throw.
