Once a year, NFL scouts collectively gather around the television set to watch Chucky dice it up on film.
Okay, it’s not that Chucky of Child’s Play fame, but rather the former NFL head coach and ESPN broadcaster John Gruden.
As reported by CBSSports.com, Gruden will be sitting down with the top NFL quarterback prospects of the 2013 NFL Draft. In what has become an annual ESPN event, Gruden will work with star quarterbacks both on the field and in the film room.
Quarterbacks invited to this year’s Gruden QB Camp include: Geno Smith (West Virginia), Matt Barkley (USC), Tyler Bray (Tennessee), Mike Glennon (NC State), Zac Dysert (Miami-OH), Landry Jones (Oklahoma), EJ Manuel (Florida State), Ryan Nassib (Syracuse), and Tyler Wilson (Arkansas).
Apparently Geno has already been hard at work in the film room with Chucky, showing Gruden his “draw” play:
