BEAVERTON, Ore. -- Namaste, quarterbacks.

Quarterbacks usually go through a variety of methods to get ready for a game. At the Elite 11 Finals, that includes a little yoga. The 18 top quarterback prospects in the 2016 class traded deep out routes for downward facing dog and hot reads for hot yoga.

The QBs, coached by Trent Dilfer and counselors from the college ranks that include Clemson's Deshaun Watson, Tennessee's Josh Dobbs and USC's Cody Kessler, will participate in passing drills, whiteboard sessions and quarterback teams during The Opening Finals at Nike Headquarters.

Striking a pose in a yoga practice is just part of the plan.

Hopefully this will help them turn tadasana into touchdowns.
