One of the quarterbacks that has really been forgotten in the mix is Kansas State’s Collin Klein. Klein lead the Wildcats to a 11-2 record this season with his 2641 yards and 16 touchdowns through the air and 920 yards on the ground. Klein announced yesterday that he will be one of the players participating in the combine workouts.
Although he was a Heisman Candidate last season, Klein isn’t exactly a hot commodity. Due to his odd throwing motion and rush heavy style, he’s not your stereotypical NFL quarterback. However, he’s trying to prove the scouts wrong and needs to take every opportunity to do so.
He’s projected by most to be a late round pick or even go undrafted, so you shouldn’t expect him to be the Bills quarterback of the future or anything. Nevertheless, he is an interesting player to follow. With the rise of rushing quarterbacks in the NFL, Klein could serve in somewhat of a hybrid role in the league. He has said previously that he wants to be a quarterback first and a rusher second, but he may have to adjust if he wants to find a spot on a roster next season.
