John Gruden Quarterback Camp

ProFootballTalk

ESPN brings back Jon Gruden's quarterback camp: http://wp.me/p14QSB-vFb

ESPN announced that Gruden will conduct film sessions with Ryan Mallett of Arkansas, Jake Locker of Washington, Andy Dalton of TCU, Cam Newton of Auburn and Blaine Gabbert of Missouri as part of an hour-long special that will air Thursday, April 21.
Awesome! I loved his QB Camp last year.
Watching the Jake Locker one, which I think is the first. This is a great show for any draft junkie. As close to the combine interview as you will ever get.

I'm not a Locker fan, AT ALL, but still, watching this, you see that he's a legit QB who may or may not be dumb outside of football, but he respect his coach and knows the game.

Still don't want him, but it's very interesting to see him in this setting. Great show. Can't wait to see how the various QBs look in comparison.
I'd consider Locker in the 2nd.
why they gotta put it on espn u
I just watched the one with Jake Locker. The kid didn't say very much. He seems kind of quiet.
Does anyone know the schedule of days/times that it airs? I can't seem to find that info. Thanks.

He's not very bright.

Still don't know where you come off saying stuff like that.
I watched it yesterday and he seemed very knowledgeable of football. Hard to judge his intelligence just off that interview but he didn't come off as a dummy to me. And I'm not a fan of his. I thought he did a nice job. Only thing I think he needs to be better at his is leadership, or just being more verbal. The answer he gave to Gruden's question about what do you say to guys when they drops wide open passes was very weak.

I missed the episode and I hope I find it on youtube soon, but I think his leadership is one of the big reasons why some teams like him. He's very passionate out on the field, a notch below Tim Tebow's intensity.

I could just be reading too much into his answer of that question. His demeanor just seemed as if he's a bit too quiet. So maybe it's more of a vocal verbal thing than pure leadership. But he was in a room and not out on the field where I'm sure his intensity would be better displayed.
Today they are featuring Andy Dalton, and after are showing the Rose Bowl TCU vs Wisconsin. So if missed Dalton in the Rose Bowl this is an excellent chance to see him in action.

When were is it on? What the heck is ESPN U?

Sorry, if that's a stupid question but I never watch ESPN (I'm a NFLN guy).

OK, I guess it's an actual channel (as opposed to a streaming video channel) and apparently I get it. Cool.
