Jared Goff says he’ll do everything at combine

Once the Super Bowl ends on Sunday night, the next big event on the NFL calendar will be the scouting combine for draft-eligible players in Indianapolis.

One of the questions leading up to the event every year is whether the top prospects will participate in the full slate of drills or if they’ll wait until a later workout in front of scouts to show off their skills. One of this year’s top quarterback prospects is Cal’s Jared Goff and he told Mike Florio on Wednesday’s PFT Live that he will be doing everything in Indy.

“I’ll do it all,” Goff said. “I’ll throw and I’ll do it all. I think it’s the right thing to do. I’ve got nothing to hide. Go out there and throw and have some fun.”

The Browns (No. 2 pick), Cowboys (No. 4 pick) and 49ers (No. 7 pick) are, to varying degrees, considered possible landing spots for quarterbacks early in the first round pick. North Dakota State’s Carson Wentz and Memphis’ Paxton Lynch join Goff as the most highly regarded quarterbacks in this year’s draft and the combine will be the first step in shaking out how likely it is one of them will land with one of those teams.

    Cal, Memphis, & ND state are where the 1st round QB’s are coming from this year??
    It wasn’t that long ago that the starting QBs in the Super Bowl were from the University of Delaware and University of Nevada.

    The top QBs in the league often don’t come from the traditional powerhouses. They’ve gone through more adversity on the field, and don’t have an NFL line blocking for them, NFL running backs, or wide open WRs to throw to.

  3. With Jackson, Hamilton, Saunders, and Kirby and the analytics of Brown and DePodesta, the Browns sure better get it right. I mean even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in a while. Its been unbelievable how many QBs we’ve had since the team came back.

    Cam Newton was a one year Ju Co transfer from Auburn.

    Matt Ryan played Boston College

    Blake Bortles played for UCF

    Russell Wilson originally played for NC State.

    And the best current best QB in football went to Cal.

    Notable QBs from football havens: AJ McCarron, Terelle Pryor (Now a WR), Tim Tebow, Sam Bradford.

    Last year was a bit of a fluke that the 2 best QBs were from top schools.

  5. Well, the reason why so many QB’s outside of the power conferences are rated higher is because they run more traditional offenses. Those programs don’t have the luxury of trotting out the best athletes week in and week out, so systematic playcalling is the only way for them to succeed. By doing so, it teaches those QBs to go through their progressions, adjust protections, and all other things asked of them in the NFL. Joe Flacco is an obvious example.

  6. He isn’t concerned with making sure some ‘impression’ whether real or imagined is held by NFL GM’s, and trying to sit on it to help his draft status.

    Whatever impression some of these guys have, sometimes it’s not the case. Sometimes they are wrong, and all they do is create uncertainty in the minds of GM’s, and they drop in the draft.

    He’s going to go out there and perform and let the chips fall where they may.

    Got to love that attitude, and it hints a bit at some mental toughness which is definitely necessary to play in the NFL.

    When was the last time we had a QB coming out of Alabama that was a top tier QB? look at the big school QB that actually made it to the nfl lately.
    Tebow – failed,
    Young – Failed,
    Russel – failed
    Leinart – failed ..
    Palmer might be the only big power house QB as of lately that has had some success .. and he still is a choke artist as we all know.
    We’ll see what Marriota can do..

  8. Browns should take Goff and start rebuilding. New Coach, new QB, new team culture. Like using some mouthwash to get a bad taste out of your mouth.

  9. This guy could be the next Aaron Rodgers who knows but if I’m the Browns I look for a qb through free agency of trade you just can’t afford to wait another year or so on a qb . I bet hue wouldn’t mind going out and giving up a pick for aj mccarron

  10. Schools that produce the worst QBs in the NFL (the last 25 years or so):

    USC, Florida, FSU, Miami, Ohio St, Oklahoma, Texas

  11. Their bet if he was the consensus #1 pick he wouldn’t be. As it stands there’s still money to be made bc it no gaurantee yet that he goes top ten. I commend him for going after it too, I’m not hatin’…..go get that money young man.
