After the quarterbacks worked out at the NFL Scouting Combine, WalterFootball.com reached out to teams to survey them on which signal-callers they thought had the best workout. Like so much of this draft season's evaluation of the quarterbacks, there were a lot of mixed opinions. Here are the results below from five teams that voted:
Pat Mahomes: 2 Deshaun Watson: 2 Davis Webb: 1 Mitch Trubisky: 0 DeShone Kizer: 0
All of the teams said that Trubisky worked out well even though he didn't impress them the most. Watson also got praise across the board, even from the three teams that picked other signal-callers. The team that rated Webb the highest said that Mahomes was the most gifted physically in terms of arm talent, and was the most charismatic with the other players gravitating toward him. However, they think that Mahomes has major mechanical issues that could affect accuracy. That, along with the massive change in offense, had them rate Mahomes behind Webb and Watson. Surprisingly, no team gave praise toward Kizer, though at the same time, none of them spoke critically of him.
Aside from those five signal-callers, C.J. Beathard and Trevor Knight also received praise from team sources.
