NFL Draft 2014: Zach Mettenberger throws at LSU Pro Day (Video)


Despite suffering a severe knee injury in the final regular season game of the 2013 college football campaign, LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger is quickly rising up some people’s boards for the 2014 NFL Draft, as his recovery is said to be coming along better than expected.

Wednesday, he had the chance to boost that stock even more at the LSU Pro Day as he not only met with some of the teams in attendance, but he was able to show off just how well that recovery is coming along by hitting his drop backs and tossing the ball around for them.

Although it was just a regular, standard drop and throw, everything looked rather well there, and that’s a good sign for his rising stock as the draft approaches next month.

As of right now, the teams that are looking at him are seeking for him not to immediately hit the field as a rookie, rather they see someone that they want to develop into a potential starter down the road.

Two teams that are rumored to be interested in making him their potential future starter are the New England Patriots and Arizona Cardinals.
