Jarrett Brown, Zac Robinson step it up

Posted on: January 27, 2010 6:26 pm
Despite all of the attention heaped upon Tim Tebow, West Virginia's Jarrett Brown and Zac Robinson more than held their own Wednesday, each enjoying their strongest practices of the week.

Brown, the West Virginia passer with only one year of starting experience, has proven the most consistent South quarterback over the week's practices. For those that haven't yet seen him, Brown is far from another version of Wildcat-specialist Pat White. Brown has a quick release and a strong arm and was fearless Wednesday, attacking all levels of the field despite having already secured his status as one of the risers from this week's action. His strong performance and legitimate upside may have boosted his status into the late 2nd or early 3rd round.

Cowboys' quarterback Zac Robinson was very good throughout most of practice before throwing two interceptions to former teammate Perrish Cox to close the show. Robinson has shown above average touch all week and showed more willingness to fire passes with authority today. He was especially improved on quick outs and slant routes, threading the needle against tight coverage often. As improved as he looked Wednesday, however, scouts would like to see him hit his receivers in stride more consistently. Too often, they had to slow or adjust their bodies to make the catch, limiting their potential for yards-after-the-catch opportunities.
