Default Re: Quarterback Ball Velocity at NFL Combine 2008-2014

Things to think about:

1) the best prospects don't throw at the combine year after year so there is not enough context.

2) Isolating any single metric yields bad analysis..see the top 40 yards dashes and bench press

3) Despite 1 and 2, there is some velocity that the vast majority of successful QBs obtain. looks like around 53-54 MPH.

4) and yes I saw that Keenum threw as fast as Russell Wilson, but see number 2
