REX GROSSMAN SNAPSHOT:

*Grossman (6-1, 217 pounds) has seen his stock rise from a first-day to a first-round prospect.

*Technical merits include a compact throwing motion. His "intangibles" include a reputation as a winner and desire to learn.

*Before arriving at the combine, Grossman spent several days in Gainesville working out with former NFL quarterback Steve DeBerg. They worked on breaking down defenses and getting rid of the ball quickly -- areas which rookie QBs repeatedly tab as the toughest transitions due to the huge jump in speed from college to pro game.
