Bryce Young nixes combine workout; other top QBs will throw
Projected No. 1 pick Bryce Young will not throw at this week’s NFL scouting combine but the other top three quarterbacks – C.J. Stroud, Anthony Richardson, and Will Levis – will work out, ESPN and NFL Network reported Monday.
The combine begins Tuesday in Indianapolis and runs through next Monday. The throwing sessions for QBs are scheduled for Saturday.
Young, who will work out for scouts at his pro day on March 23 in Tuscaloosa, Ala., will go to Indianapolis for interviews, medicals, and measurements, per the reports.
All four quarterbacks are projected to be selected in the top 10 of April’s draft.
The Chicago Bears own the No. 1 pick but are expected to trade out, with quarterback-needy teams looking to move up.
Young and Stroud are expected targets of the Indianapolis Colts, who would like to move up from No. 4 to avoid losing out on an elite passer. The Houston Texans own the No. 2 pick and are also in the QB market, as are other teams with selections in the top 10 — the Las Vegas Raiders and Carolina Panthers among them.
