Here's another thing to consider: Are the QBs being asked to throw at max velocity? Maybe Flacco was trying to show at the combine that he could throw with touch? Does anyone really think the guys with 55+ velocity have as good or better arm strength than Joe Flacco? I don't think so. It's pretty much a nothing stat. A scout (and maybe even fans like us) should be able to watch the games and determine if a QB has a strong arm or not.
