Unlike the early-round quarterback prospects at this week's Scouting Combine, Oregon State quarterback Sean Canfield is looking forward to showing off his arm when quarterbacks hit the field this Sunday.
"After talking with my agent at the Senior Bowl, one thing I think they (NFL talent evaluators) want to see is arm strength. I've never doubted my arm strength. I've always considered myself with a pretty strong arm. And so I think showing that off on Sunday will be big for me.
"I want to show off what I have. I know a lot of guys have caught flak for not wanting to throw. I've never been a guy who would not want to do something like that. The only thing I won't do is bench. But throwing is something I want to do and I want to show off that arm strength."
Canfield feels that playing in (Oregon State head coach) Mike Riley's pro-style offense, working out in the off-season with former Oregon State quarterbacks Derek Anderson and Matt Moore, as well as playing under center 60% of the time, has helped him prepare for the next level.
The left-handed Canfield passed for 3,271 yards and 21 touchdowns in 2009, after missing most of the 2008 season with a left shoulder injury. Canfield has already spoken with the Seattle Seahawks, and has another meeting with them scheduled for Friday night.
