ESPN Gruden’s QB Camp

Written By: hawkcoach - Apr• 19•11

An excellent series on ESPN right now is Jon Gruden’s QB Camp.  Jon Gruden breaks down the top NFL draft pick QBs on his show.  He spends time reviewing film with them and takes them out to the field to review their mechanics.  Gruden has just the personality to pull this show off and it truly is entertaining.  He’s not afraid to put the QBs on the hot seat and point out their weaknesses.  It’s very easy to imagine Gruden back as a head coach getting into the head of to his prize QB prospect.  Here are some short 4-5 minute clips on ESPN’s website of the 30 minute show you can catch on ESPN or ESPN2:

Gruden’s QB Camp:  Gabbert

Gruden’s QB Camp:  Newton

Gruden’s QB Camp:  Mallet

Gruden’s QB Camp:  Dalton

Gruden’s QB Camp:  Locker

    I’m not enamored with any of the quarterbacks in this year’s draft. I think there is more bust potential than superstar potential. If I had to pick one, I’d go with Mallett.

    I agree that there are a lot of risks. Newton is a great athlete but has questionable mechanics. Locker has speed and a big body but his accuracy suffers in the pocket. Mallett has some character concerns. I do like Gabbert’s passing ability, but it will be interesting to see how these qb’s adjust to a pro-style offense.
