Heisman Trophy finalist Collin Klein plans to do a complete workout for NFL scouts at the combine, including throwing to receivers, in hopes of boosting his draft stock. Klein has ideal measurables for an NFL quarterback at 6-foot-5 and 218 pounds, but questions remain about the converted wide receiver's delivery and accuracy.

Klein completed 197 of 304 passes for 2,641 yards and 16 touchdowns during his senior season at Kansas State and also ran for 23 touchdowns in the Wildcats' zone-read offense.

According to NFLDraftScout's QB rankings, Klein is the 16th-best QB prospect entering the draft and projects as a seventh-round pick or an undrafted free agent.

Klein struggled in his first audition for NFL scouts in the East-West Shrine Game, completing just 5 of 13 passes for 43 yards and an interception.
