INDIANAPOLIS -- Florida State's Christian Ponder is a smart, accurate passer who has the intelligence needed to be a good NFL quarterback.
The question about him was his arm. Was he recovered enough from an elbow injury that limited him in 2010? He answered that question Sunday with an impressive throwing day here at the combine.
The impressive performance, which one scout said was a big surprise, could vault Ponder to the back end of the first round.
Andy Dalton, a player I like a lot, didn't throw as well. He has to show better at his pro day at TCU. But Dalton is not the kind of kid who will throw well in an environment like the combine. Here's a bet he throws better at his pro day in March.
