Senior Bowl practices are underway this week, and wouldn't you know it -- scouts have their eyes on the quarterbacks.
That means Stephen Morris, Logan Thomas and Tajh Boyd are firmly in the spotlight this week among featured ACC players participating in the college all-star game, a critical first step in evaluations for the NFL draft in May. Scouts Inc. lists Thomas as the highest rated quarterback among the three and broke down what each has to accomplish this week.
For Thomas: The need to "thrive with an even playing field."
For Morris: More consistency with footwork and ball placement as a passer.
For Boyd: "Show improvement throughout the week with pro-style progressions and anticipation as a pocket passer."
Here is a look at all the ACC players participating in the Senior Bowl, with the game set for Saturday. Boston College running back Andre Williams was invited but pulled out so he can continue to rehab his injured shoulder.
