The NFL Draft isn’t for another three months, but today is an important job interview for a number of NFL hopefuls, including Anthony Gordon, the record-setting, chillest quarterback of your Washington State Cougars.
Gordon will take the field in the Reese’s Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama. He’s the third straight WSU quarterback to participate in the event, following in the footsteps of Luke Falk and Gardner Minshew II.
The game is just one part of the event. The measurements and practices leading up to the event are probably (definitely?) more important for NFL scouts. That’s when players really show off their skills. The game is essentially a controlled scrimmage with a lot of modified rules. For instance, there are only three offensive personnel packages allowed, and all three include a tight end. Receivers aren’t allowed to go in motion, and there is no blitzing. Only four guys can rush the quarterback, anyway.
It’s probably not that easy to practice for a few days with a bunch of new teammates and then go out and gel as a team, but this isn’t a game to be won, it’s a game to impress.
So has Gordon impressed? Don’t ask me, ask Theo Lawson of The Spokesman-Review. He found all sorts of reviews related to Gordon, as well as Cal linebacker Evan Weaver.
Gordon is on the North squad, which also features quarterbacks Shea Patterson and Jordan Love.
Catch the game today at 11:30 a.m. PST on the NFL Network.
