Oregon State QB Sean Mannion "should look good in the passing drills [at the combine] because of his comfort level with all sorts of drops and throws, but his athleticism is a question," noted NFL.com.
"Mannion had a great junior season (4,662 yards, 37 TDs, 66.3 completion percentage) but struggled as a senior (3,164 yards, 15 TDs, 62.3 completion percentage), and some analysts wonder if he can be an NFL starter," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Mike Huguenin. We remain miffed that Mannion is still discussed as even a potential starter in the pros. The statuesque Mannion struggles with pressure, leading to sacks and head-scratching interceptions. He did, however, "[draw] the most praise" amongst senior QBs from NFL scouts polled by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel earlier this winter. Mannion's got a good arm and stands 6-foot-5, 218 pounds, but we question just about every other aspect of his game.
