Bryce Young Impresses Coaches at NFL Combine
Bryce Young, the top quarterback prospect from the University of Alabama, impressed coaches and scouts at the NFL Scouting Combine on Wednesday. Despite being just over 5’10” and 204 pounds, Young showed off his arm strength, accuracy, and speed during the drills.
Young, who decided not to throw during the combine, explained his decision in a recent interview with CBS Sports. “I wanted to focus on the drills and show teams what I can do without throwing,” he said. “I’m confident in my ability to throw the ball, and I’ll have plenty of opportunities to show that in private workouts.”
Young’s confidence was evident during the combine, as he took the field alongside other top quarterbacks like C.J. Stroud and Anthony Richardson. All three impressed coaches and scouts with their athleticism and accuracy, leading some to speculate that this year’s quarterback draft class could be one of the strongest in recent memory.
Rich Eisen, host of “The Rich Eisen Show,” called the influx of talent at the quarterback position a “game-changer” for the NFL. “There are so many talented quarterbacks coming out of college this year, it’s going to be fascinating to see where they end up,” he said.
For Young and the other top prospects, the road to the NFL draft is far from over. Private workouts, interviews with teams, and the draft itself all loom ahead. But if Wednesday’s showing is any indication, Young and his fellow quarterbacks are more than up to the challenge.
