2018 Combine Workout Warriors: Quarterbacks

The on-field work for quarterbacks at the NFL Scouting Combine is a little bit different than most positions.

Timing and testing drills take a back seat to passing drills, which are also optional, but recommended by most experts.

Even though quarterbacks usually have never thrown to receivers attending the combine, quarterbacks are still able to show footwork, delivery mechanics, velocity and accuracy.

Quarterbacks cycled through go routes, quick slants, deep ins and post-corners and will have one more opportunity to impress scouts and coaches at the pro days hosted by their colleges between the combine and the NFL Draft (April 26-28).

Kurt Benkert of Virginia was the only quarterback who participated in the bench press this year. He lifted 225 pounds 16 times.

Here were the top performers for quarterbacks in the timing and testing drills at the combine:
