Here's a look at Tuesday's South team quarterbacks:
What a difference a day makes for the southpaw.
On Monday, Tebow couldn't hit the broadside of a barn. On Tuesday, his accuracy
was much better. He also threw with more power, especially over the middle.
Tebow had better touch on Tuesday, but again, he takes too long to get the ball
out of his hands.
Another improvement we saw from him was he made deeper throws with better
accuracy. We're not talking 40-50 yards, but more like 20-25.
Zac Robinson/Oklahoma St.
This was a much better session for Robinson on the second day of practice.
He threw the ball with better accuracy and power. He still needs to get his body
more into his throws, but Robinson made better progress in getting the ball out
of his hands more quickly to his receivers and tight ends.
Jarrett Brown/West Virginia
The strong-armed signal caller had another strong session on Tuesday. Brown's
accuracy was solid and he had no problem getting the ball out of his hands on
time to his intended passing targets.
You have to like how Brown isn't afraid to throw the ball into tight windows.
That's a great sign.
Brown did a better job on Tuesday with timing and anticipation of where his
receivers would be at the end of their route. Timing with receivers is one of
the biggest issues young quarterbacks face, especially when they've never worked
with these particular players before.
Two other players to keep an eye on from the South team:
- WR Joe Webb/Alabama-Birmingham - He played quarterback at UAB, but is playing
wide receiver here this week. He has a big frame and isn't afraid to go over the
middle. Webb moves fairly well and has skills that are worth developing.
- RB/WR Dexter McCluster - He has been the most impressive offensive player from
either squad through two days of practices. In fact, in the nine years I've been
coming to Mobile for Senior Bowl week, I don't think I've seen an offensive
player with more suddenness. He also gives tremendous effort at the snap. While
he's a bit small, McCluster plays bigger than his listed size (5'8", 165).
