ESPN - Gruden's QB Camp


Has anyone seen this special on ESPN with Jon Gruden interviewing and working with all of the top QB's in this year's draft?

This is perhaps the single best program that ESPN has put on TV in years aside from historical sports moment programs.

My brief observations:

1. Jimmy Clausen seemed to have a very sloppy approach to the QB position, but a great relationship with his WR's. If a coach can motivate this guy, then he's worth a top 15 pick. It seems like a huge mistake to throw him on the field in his rookie season though. I could understand the Niners taking him in the 1st round with the idea that he'll sit on the bench. He wouldn't command a top QB salary/bonus in the 13-17 range.

2. Tim Tebow's new throwing motion looks 10x better than before and it actually looks natural, not forced. I now understand why Tebow is being considered in the 1st/2nd rounds. Question for the Tebow doubters out there... Can you honestly say that Josh Freeman was a better QB prospect than Tebow?

3. Sam Bradford is flat out the best QB in this draft. I've felt this all along and IMO he's the single best QB prospect since Peyton Manning. The guy has the tools, the smarts, and the qualities that you want in a leader. I found it hilarious when people mocked Clausen ahead of Bradford after the bowl season.

4. Jon Gruden is made for TV. I'm tired of the canned responses and teleprompted speech that most interviewers have for professional athletes. You could tell that Gruden was unscripted and not holding back his true feelings on these guys. This was probably the closest that a TV camera will get to some of the pre-draft interviews that teams have with prospects.
