NFL Scouting Combine 2013: Collin Klein Will Workout


According to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora, Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein will work out at this year’s NFL Scouting Combine.

“Kansas State QB Collin Klein will be throwing and doing all drills at the combine. Will be interesting to see which guys boost their stock,” Jason tweeted.

The quarterbacks in this years draft are considered to be a weak class. Some have Geno Smith and maybe one other quarterback going in the first round and Collin Klein isn’t on that list.

Collin Klein by all means had a successful college season. He led his team to a #1 ranking, travelled to Norman and knocked off the University of Oklahoma Sooners. He even finished the season as a Heisman finalist alongside Johnny Manziel and Manti Te’o.

However he isn’t projected highly in the NFL draft and many don’t think he’ll have what it takes to succeed in the NFL. The emergence of dual threat quarterbacks in read option offenses and pistol formations give Klein a chance to succeed and be a cinderella story of sorts.

The man tied Ricky Williams for the most rushing touchdowns in a season in the Big 12 with 27 trips to the end zone. Someone will bring him to camp, it’s up to him to impress and earn the job cause he won’t be handed any.
