Quarterbacks are always put under the biggest of microscopes at the NFL Combine. It’s how it’s always been, and how it will always be.
Game Carl Yastrzemski Jersey This year, there are five quarterbacks who are being looked at more than others. Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, Lamar Jackson, Josh Rosen, and Baker Mayfield. It’s hard to tell where these guys will land in the NFL, but this week at the combine will undoubtedly have an affect in shaping out the April draft.
The deal has forced Bowman to make some tough decisions, like parting with Niklas Hjalmarsson and Artemi Panarin (the skilled winger was due for a decent contract extension that would hardly fit under Chicago’s cap).

Vander Esch probably locked up a spot in the first round at the combine with excellent numbers in most of his workouts. With Ryan Shazier officially out for next season, Vander Esch can be used in many of the same ways.
