QB Jimmy Garoppolo - Eastern Illinois
Fast rising prospect had a strong pro day on Tuesday in front of dozens of NFL scouts. His excellent postseason that included both the East-West and Senior Bowl all-star games has him moving up NFL clubs draft board quickly.

He broke virtually all of Tony Romo’s college records and threw for more than 5,000 yards in 2013. He answered questions about playing against strong competition this postseason. He combines a good arm, fine mechanics and intangibles NFL clubs seek in a starting leader. With invitations to NFL teams facilities possible in April, he could be selected in the top 50 prospects in May
