Jimmy Garoppolo, Eastern Illinois
Senior; 6-2, 226; 5,050 yards, 53 touchdowns, 9 interceptions.
Projected round: 2-3
Garoppolo has come on strong during the pre-draft process and his stock appears to be on the rise. He has good arm strength and put up huge numbers as a four-year starter in college. Like Flacco, Garoppolo is a product of the Football College Subdivision, which lacks the traditional college powerhouses. He’s a product of the same school as Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. Garoppolo has to show pro teams that he can make the leap to the next level, and that playing at a small school in college won’t hurt him in the NFL. He projects as a likely second- or third-rounder, which might make him too early of a pick for the Ravens.
A.J. McCarron, Alabama
Senior; 6-3, 220; 3,063 yards, 28 touchdowns, seven interceptions
Projected round: 3-4
The Alabama quarterback led the Crimson Tide to two national titles during his time as the starting signal caller. General Manager Ozzie Newsome has been watching McCarron closely the last few years as a supporter of his alma mater. McCarron has to convince NFL scouts that he can succeed at the NFL level, and that he was more than just a facilitator for all the talented players around him.
Aaron Murray, Georgia
Senior; 6-1, 210; 3,075 yards, 26 touchdowns, nine interceptions
Projected round: 3-4
Murray was a four-year starter at Georgia in the best conference in college football. He developed from a game manager from early in his career to the clear leader of the Georgia offense. He has experience running a pro-style offense against top-flight talent, and he is projected as a third-or fourth-round draft pick. Part of the concern with Murray is that he is also coming back from a torn ACL that he suffered near the end of last season. He is five months removed from ACL surgery, and has spent the pre-draft process rehabbing so that he’s ready for a training camp this summer. If the injury causes him to fall, then Murray could be a fit with the Ravens because they aren’t looking for someone to compete for the starting job.
Logan Thomas, Virginia Tech
Senior; 6-6, 254; 2,909 yards, 16 touchdowns, 13 interceptions
Projected round: 7-FA
The Ravens already drafted one Virginia Tech quarterback with Taylor, and now Thomas is another to consider. He replaced Taylor in college, and he took over the job with a lot of hype surrounding him. He has the prototypical size of an NFL quarterback, and has a big arm to match it. He struggled to develop into a consistent player at the college level, and was often prone to turnovers. Thomas threw 39 interceptions during his college career, and he is projected as a late-round or undrafted prospect. Despite some of those miscues, Thomas still has talent and the Ravens could take him as a late-round prospect and give him time to develop.
First game is Sunday night from Chicago.
The NCAA’s legislative council approved a proposal Tuesday to expand the meal allowance for all athletes.
The move occurred eight days after Connecticut guard Shabazz Napier complained during the Final Four that he sometimes went to bed “starving” because he couldn’t afford food.
The proposal would allow Division I schools to provide unlimited meals and snacks to all athletes, including walk-ons. The measure still must be approved by the board of directors, which meets April 24.
