MQA Quarterbacks Heading into 2017 NFL Draft

MQA Quarterbacks Heading into 2017 NFL Draft

2016 NFL draft for Mastrole Quarterback Academy was the most successful draft class in history. 5 MQA quarterback’s were drafted by NFL and are currently on active rosters. The 2017 class features Pitt Panthers QB Nate Peterman, Virginia Tech QB Jerod Evans, Boston College Patrick Towles, and FSU Sean Maguire. Peterman, who has spent the last 2 1/2 years working with Mastrole has continued to gain momentum heading into late April. Peterman was considered by many to be the top quarterback during the Senior Bowl and was equally impressive at the NFL combine. the Pitt QB continued to open NFL coaches and executives eyes with a very strong Pro Day. Peterman showcased a strong arm, quick release, athletic ability, and a strong understanding of X’s and O’s during the final interview. Mastrole and Peterman worked extensively in South Florida on arm speed, mechanics, footwork, mental prep for his rookie year, and mobility. Jerod Evans of Virginia Tech was a quarterback who decided to forgo his Senior year after being one of the most impressive quarterbacks in college football. Evans lead Tech to a Belk bowl win over Arkansas and the 6-4″ Texas native showcased his ability to run and throw. Mastrole and Evans spent 9 weeks working on sharpening the quarterback’s mechanics, ability to thrive under center, and what he would endure during his first rookie mini camp. Hours of film and board study. Simulated playbooks, situational talks, offensive philosophies, protections, concepts, fronts, and coverages were all part of the draft prep process. Mastrole also spent a considerable about of time working on Evan’s balance and posture from pre pass to his throwing mechanics. Towles, from Boston College is an intriguing prospect. The quarterback has all of the physical tools to excel at the NFL level as a quarterback. The former Kentucky Wildcat and Boston College Eagle traveled South to Florida to work with Mastrole on improving functional strength, throwing mechanics, sequencing, and timing. High speed cameras, 3D motion analysis, and over 180 hours of instruction showed NFL scouts on Towles pro day that he has improved significantly in efficiency and accuracy. This year’s NFL should be exciting for the 4 quarterback prospects looking to take the next step in their career. If it is anything like the 2016 NFL MQA draft class we will see a Super Bowl Champion, a 6th round pick win the number 2 QB job, and all 5 finish on NFL rosters for the 2016 season.
