Fans of Gruden's QB Camp on ESPN will be treated to seven potential rookies this season. It was announced today that the following quarterbacks will be featured on the show hosted by former Super Bowl-winning coach Jon Gruden. The names of those quarterbacks are below.
Jared Goff, California
Carson Wentz, North Dakota State
Paxton Lynch, Memphis
Connor Cook, Michigan State
Christian Hackenberg, Penn State
Cardale Jones, Ohio State
Dak Prescott, Mississippi State
Goff, Wentz, and Lynch could all be first-round selections in April's NFL Draft with Wentz and Goff competing to be the first quarterback off the board. Numerous mock drafts have the 49ers possibly selecting a quarterback with their seventh overall selection, especially should the team decide to part ways with frustrated quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
This is the seventh season that Gruden will hosted the show. If you are not familiar with it, Gruden's QB Camp, which is filmed at ESPN's Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Florida, features segments of him conducting one-on-one interviews quarterbacks about to enter the NFL Draft. The fun part is when he tests their football knowledge by having them read and dissect plays.
Gruden's QB Camp will premiere April 12 at 8:30 p.m. ET on ESPN and will air across multiple ESPN networks and ABC leading up to the 2016 NFL Draft.
