Tuesday Senior Bowl Quarterbacks-South

Scout.com's NFL insider gives his view of the South squad's quarterbacks after Tuesday's practice.

MOBILE, Ala. --

Here's inside look the North squad quarterbacks on Tuesday during the 90-minute practice:

John Parker Wilson/Alabama - Wilson has an average arm and isn't able to get enough strength into his passes.

During Tuesday's session, the Senior signal caller did show decent accuracy. The problem is too many of his passes were deflected because of his lack of arm strength.

And for a quarterback who has a less than average arm, it's going to be hard for him to get the ball down field this week since it has been quite windy.

Pat White/West Virginia - White, despite his ideal size for the position, has declined to move to receiver. He should have taken a cue from another Senior Bowl signal caller some eight years ago.

Many may recall during 2002's Senior Bowl week, former Indiana University QB Antwaan Randle El was willing to move to receiver for the practices. That move turned to be nothing short of brilliant since he was the most impressive receiver that week. Randle El wound up being selected in the second round of the 2002 draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

While White clearly lacks solid arm strength, he still put decent zip into his shorter to intermediate throws.

The problem some of the receivers had with White was with timing since his passes tended to have a huge arc and they came out differently than some are used to because he's left handed.

Cullen Harper/Clemson - There's no debate here with Harper when it comes to arm strength. Harper clearly has the most of the three signal callers on the North squad.

But the problem him, and why he's dropped on so many draft boards after a disappointing Senior season, is his inconsistent mechanics and accuracy.

The ball didn't come out clean from his hand most of the time during this practice. While some might point to the windy conditions, it still doesn't excuse poor fundamentals.
