Player: Jimmy Garoppolo
School: Eastern Illinois
Weight: 222 pounds
Draft Projection: 2nd round
Senior Bowl Team: South
Garoppolo is the biggest mover in the draft projections so far. The EIU QB is now rated to be selected in the second round. In Senior Bowl practices, it is being reported by Rob Rang at NFLDraftScout.com:
"“Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo continued the positive momentum he’d gained from the East-West Shrine Game with an impressive initial practice. While he does not possess Carr’s howitzer, Garoppolo has a very quick set-up and release and frequently threw led his receivers away from defenders.”"
Garoppolo, the fifth-rated QB, really draws my interest, but I want to see what happens in the Senior Bowl and during the rest of the draft process.
