Everyone's talking about Cam Newton and Blaine Gabbert leading up to the NFL combine, but I think you'll soon hear a lot more about TCU quarterback Andy Dalton. He's going to blow teams away during the interview process because of his poise and intelligence. His name recently came up in an Adam Schefter mailbag:
Question: Every year it seems there a few players who are under the radar before the combine, have amazing performances and see their draft stock skyrocket. Who do you think are some of those candidates this year?
Schefter: "Hard not to come back to the quarterbacks. Two are starting to emerge this year: Nevada's Colin Kaepernick and TCU's Andy Dalton. Each has impressed scouts for different reasons. Now, there will be somebody like Jacoby Ford who burns holes in the FieldTurf at Lucas Oil Field and launch himself higher in the draft. And other players also will make a mark -- good and bad. But quarterbacks always are the most significant and important position to analyze."
Dalton will join us today at 5 p.m. on ESPN 103.3's "Galloway & Company" in Dallas-Fort Worth. If you'd like to submit a question for Dalton, leave it in the comments section and I'll choose a couple. This is a very impressive player and I get the feeling that Redskins coach Mike Shanahan is going to give him a long look.
