Dud: Sam Ehlinger | Quarterback | Texas
Unlike Brown, sometimes prospects measure in under what is expected. Playmaker Sam Ehlinger is one of those players who had his numbers tweaked a bit while he was playing in college.
Ehlinger officially measured in at 6-1, which is different than the 6-3 he was listed as on the Texas Longhorns’ site. While the NFL has seen shorter quarterbacks play well, what is disappointing here is that Ehlinger was used as a running quarterback very frequently, asked to make plays with his legs almost as much as with his arm. Being shorter than advertised hurts his stock as a quarterback and encourages a potential position switch.
It would make sense, as Ehlinger is a subpar passer with underwhelming arm talent, so those numbers could make him a potential running back or fullback. All in all, needing to check every box possible to prove worthy of playing under center, his 6-1 frame will make NFL teams look at him as possibly the next Taysom Hill.
