Louisiana Tech quarterback Jeff Driskel getting second-round grades

Louisiana Tech quarterback Jeff Driskel has been stamped with a second-round grade by "a number of franchises," according to NFL draft insider Tony Pauline.

What It Means:

Driskel has NFL-caliber arm strength and size (6-foot-4/230 pounds), and scouts were reportedly impressed with the way he improved at the Senior Bowl as the week of practices progressed. Per Pauline, some evaluators believe a good Combine performance could push Driskel toward the top of the second quarterback tier, ahead of Michigan State's Connor Cook and Penn State's Christian Hackenberg.

Driskel -- who originally attended Florida -- completed 62.3 percent of his passes in 2015, throwing for 4,026 yards, 27 touchdowns and eight picks.
