Scouting Report
Garoppolo is hoping to follow in the footsteps of Dallas Cowboys star Tony Romo and become another Eastern Illinois quarterback who makes it big in the NFL. He broke all of Romo's career school records, totaling 13,156 passing yards and 118 touchdowns. His incredible senior season caught the attention of scouts, helping him become one of the top quarterbacks available in the draft and a likely second-round selection. Garoppolo led the FCS with 5,050 passing yards - Fresno State's Derek Carr topped the FBS with 5,083 - and his 53 touchdown passes ranked second in all of Division I behind the 55 thrown by Vernon Adams Jr. of Eastern Washington. Garoppolo won the Walter Payton Award as the top player in the FCS and was named the Ohio Valley Conference's offensive player of the year after leading Eastern Illinois to a No. 2 national ranking before losing in the quarterfinals of the NCAA playoffs. Following the season, he was named MVP of the East-West Shrine Game, going 9 of 14 for 100 yards and a TD after being a late addition to the roster when Alabama's AJ McCarron declined an invitation. Garoppolo also appeared in the Senior Bowl, where he went 6 of 11 for 32 yards. At the NFL combine, he displayed a quick release and was third among quarterbacks with a time of 7.04 seconds in the 3-cone drill. Selected to The Associated Press FCS All-America team, Garoppolo could go to a club looking for a young backup that it can develop into a starter. Working in a spread offense in college put Garoppolo behind the eight ball, and he'll need to prove that he can adapt to the NFL game.
