Here`s an interesting listing of QB Velocity from the NFL Combine from 2008-2016: ... 2008-2015/
As we kind of know, QBs with a high velocity do not necessarily translate to elite QBs, but looking at the list, the better QBs do have the higher velocity numbers.

Some of the numbers of interest:

Vernon Adams - 53

Brandon Bridge - 57
Cody Fajardo - 55
Anthony Boone - 56
Shane Carden -52

Jeff Mathews - 56
Jordan Lynch - 55
Tajh Boyd - 54

Jacory Harris - 50

Dan LeFevour - 49

Mike Reilly - 58
Drew Willy - 58

Edit: I corrected Reilly, and also wanted to say that the Jacory Harris number doesn`t look very promising.
I`m not always right, I just think I am.


Looking at the list only tells me that velocity is almost meaningless, or a confusing metric. Interesting tho  

Russell Wilson -55
Dak Prescott:54

Reilly -58 (not 59)

TONS of washout guys are 57-59. Kaepernick at 59. Drew Willy 59 ( that did surprise me)

I guess it points out that 53 is about the norm. I probably would have pegged Adams as less than that.

The other thing that was a surprise was the number of "successful" guys who were listed as "did not throw"


There is a reason why Harris hasn't been let on the field in four years.
Everything I write is just an opinion formed from various sources. Some more reliable than others, it is expressed as a composite of facts, innuendos, emotions, personal experiences and complete fabulation into a gumbo for entertainment purposes alone.

Johnny remembers from physics courses, that acceleration is usually a better indicator of force. Two guys might have a ball with a top speed of 55, but one might get to 55 a lot faster. The one with greater acceleration will be a stronger zippier pass.

This top speed metric is not very useful IJHO.
