An anonymous NFL scout told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that Iowa QB C.J. Beathard will "end up being one of the best backup quarterbacks in the league."
This is one of the best back-handed anonymous compliments that we've read during the process. "As a starter, he doesn’t do a lot of things by himself," the scout said. "But he’s got a good arm, he’s accurate and has intangibles. Athletically, you want a little bit better." Beathard entered last season with more fans in NFL circles, but he sealed his fate as a Day 3 afterthought upon dropping off from a 95.7 rating as a junior to an 80.8 rating as a senior. "He’ll play 10 years as a second- or third-team quarterback," said a second scout. "He’s smart as (expletive) and a great kid. His grandfather should be in the Hall of Fame." A third scout concluded: "In the games where they put pressure on him he just starts putting the ball up for grabs. He did play hurt. In the bowl game they beat the crap out of him and he kept coming back." Apr 26 - 12:49 PM
