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).
