Mayfield said he understands the point of the NFL Scouting Combine, where more than 300 prospects and almost the same number of scouts and NFL team executives converge each year, is to find out "what's wrong with you". "He's a bigger dude".
"It went well", Allen said. "If the Giants draft Josh Allen at two, they're not going to ask him to play right away, so he can learn behind Eli Manning". They have a lot of good questions. "We've become really good friends".
"First things first, they'd get a victor", Mayfield said.
"That was insane, " he said. It was a really cool feel.
"I'm here to show 32 teams why they should draft me, and I think I can do that", Barrett said. "Just happy to be a part of it". None of the quarterbacks were flawless in the group, and Allen had his misses, though there were passers who had more.
"I think I'm the best quarterback here", Rosen said, echoing Mayfield's assessment of himself.
"Felt good", Allen said.
Rosen looked terrific zipping the ball downfield and delivering accurate throws during his throwing drill. "Yep. He just gets it". It had been a few days. "He was doing really, really well in the OTAs and training camp past year and then he missed four weeks with a hamstring [injury] and I don't think he ever recovered. So wherever I end up, I'm excited to take on those challenges and hopefully overcome some obstacles". Josh Allen, the big-armed quarterback from Wyoming, had just launched a ball 66 yards in the air on a go route to Texas A&M receiver Christian Kirksey. "We're nearly halfway there now and we got some more work to do". "You see guys like Tyrod Taylor and Russell Wilson, they prove it doesn't matter".
"I think that there's kind of a misconception with the whole thing", he said.
Some of the prospects at the combine view their meetings with the media as an opportunity to tell their story, state their case and go out of their way to be as pleasant, cooperative and effusive as possible.
Perhaps he will be the guy who turns around a struggling franchise, regardless of venue. "What you see is what you get". Getting drafted is only the start of your National Football League career, and that has no impact on how you finish it. "Obviously you learn from decisions on the field and off the field. That's what I plan to do". "He will probably throw it very close to 90 yards at his Pro Day".
Allen and Darnold have trained together in their pre-draft work and Allen has said earlier this year the he knew he had "a lot of flaws as a quarterback, " but that "I can be that guy to lead a team".
"There's still some things to improve in my footwork", he said.
"I think, if I was a kid, I would love this". That's exactly why he should have been confident enough to back it up on the same field as Rosen and Mayfield - before they took it later on Saturday afternoon.
Teams are asking themselves whether these guys can be the next Carson Wentz, who ignited the Philadelphia Eagles' Super Bowl run in just his second season before getting hurt and rooting on Nick Foles from the sideline.
