I was half kidding and that's what I was getting at with my post. You look at Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger and Jay Cutler in the nfl. Not the fastest or most athletic guys but they are smart runners and no how to be mobile. So he might have good speed and all but doesn't know how to use it out of the qb position.

These are from @brianstumpfespn tweets and the overall estimate is only a ranking average of the top five.  The "overall estimate" would not necessarily reflect the overall performers (eg that might be ranked 6 in every category).

Wow....surprised Hackenberg didn't crack the top in anything. Keep reading he is a great athlete and like someone said earlier the lack of Dual Threat guys is a surprise.

This first deal was just a practice, so we did not do top performers in terms of ranking them, but these eight caught our eye.

While initially amusing, this is kind of annoying.  Couldn't they come up with some way to get some quality WRs to come to this gig?  Hopefullly they are only judging the QBs' accuracy on whether or not they got the ball to the target and not on actual receptions, o/w the hard throwers will be at a disadvantage.
