The 2014 Senior Bowl didn’t have the greatest quarterback play on Saturday afternoon, with David Fales leading all six QBs who played in the game, in which the South defeated the North, 20-10.

Fales (San Jose State) finished 6-of-7 for 104 yards with one touchdown and one interception. Fales averaged 14.9 yards per completion.

All six QBs combined for five interceptions.

Also for the South, Derek Carr (Fresno State) was 7-of-11 for 45 yards (4.1 ypc) with one touchdown and no interceptions, and Jimmy Garoppolo (Eastern Illinois) went 6-of-12 for 32 yards (2.7 ypc) with no TDs or interceptions.

Carr’s TD went for 17 yards.

The ESPN article quoted Carr speaking about the TD pass:

"“He was so open, I just wanted to get the ball in his hands and let him go.”"

For the North, Stephen Morris (Miami) was 10-of-18 for 89 yards (4.9 ypc with two interceptions and no touchdowns.

Tajh Boyd (Clemson) went 7-of-16 for 31 yards (1.9 ypc) with one interception and no TD passes. Logan Thomas (Virginia Tech) finished 4-of-5 for 18 yards (3.6 ypc).

All of these players have the potential to possibly land on the Texans in the draft, but none with the No. 1 overall selection.

One game can’t make or break any of these QBs, but playing under the pressure of many NFL coaches, scouts and owners all at the same time, for the first time, is just the start of a very hectic offseason for these six QBs.
