UNDER THE RADAR: LA QB Showdown, Big Ten QBs in the NFL, Coaching Upheaval & Who Really Benefits

1. QB Showdown in LA: Having been on hand to witness the showdown of the top two NFL QB prospects, UCLA's Josh Rosen and USC's Sam Darnold, it was a battle to remember. Both have the ability to match their billing. Josh Rosen's individual performance was the more impressive of the 2 junior quarterbacks. He has a quicker release and made some really difficult throws while getting hit. Darnold gives the added element of mobility with a little more deliberate release and no injury history. Neither player has declared for the NFL draft so this may all be too early, but every scout believes they are both top-level NFL guys. As you look at the Big 10 that is something that seems to be missing.....maybe.
