    Seems to me that this DID NOT happen.

    You can argue the relative importance of arm strength, but that was not your original contention.

    We knew he was accurate, his arm is nothing special. Only "surprise" I gather is that he is faster than we thought.

    I hope some team is stupid enough to draft him early as you contend, but I do not see any basis to change ones opinion based on his pro day.

    Personally from what I saw and heard from the likes f Mayock while the pro day was going on was that he did show that he had above average arm strength. Elite? No but above average. He deliberately threw into the wind and of all his passes he had two that fluttered yet still make it to his receiver. And on the deep out his arm strength was solid.

    Some in the media have been trying to make it out that he has below average arm strength. That is far from the case.

    That really has yet to be determined. If he gets drafted in the top 15 or top 10 then his pro day did exactly. that.
