After a resurgent 2013 season, LSU Tigers QB Zach Mettenberger didn’t end his career in Baton Rouge the way he wanted to, suffering a sever tear of his ACL in the final game of the season against Arkansas. His recovery from the injury has been rumored to be miraculous, given the time frame, and that’s now confirmed with the fact that he’s decided to show off his arm for NFL Scouts during his Pro Day on April 9.
This is a great sign fort he knee, given how rigorous the throwing drill for the NFL scouts are on the lower body, so this is definitely good news on the recovery front.
After a lackluster 2012 season, throwing wise, Mettenberger improved tremendously in 2013 after head coach Les Miles brought in veteran coach Cam Cameron who worked wonders with the LSU signal caller .
Mettenberger’s agent points out that the doctors are just as impressed as anyone with his progression.
“The doctors are thoroughly impressed with where he is and the progress he has made,” said Seth Katz, his agent. “He’s weeks ahead of schedule and it’s nothing surprising.”
So as not to aggravate anything, Mettenberger more than likely won’t run the 40-yard dash, rather just show the NFL teams on his Pro Day that he has the arm to make it in the NFL.
