OVERVIEW: There were high expectations for Mariota in the physical tests, particularly the 40-yard dash. Still, he impressed coaches and scouts. He ran a 4.52, the fastest of any quarterback at the combine. Auburn's Nick Marshall finished .02 behind him and Marshall is expected to play cornerback at the next level. A concern with Mariota was how he would perform in three, five and seven-step drops from under center after playing primarily out of the shotgun in college. He displayed very quick feet and was accurate on most of his throws.

WHAT HE'S SAYING: "I think I did alright," Mariota said. "I thought that I missed a couple throws. I'm a perfectionist so I always want to try to complete every ball. I thought everyone did well today. I thought as a group, we threw well today so it was a lot of fun."

PASSING GRADE:B 40-YARD DASH: 4.52 Seconds
