Name  Jimmy Garoppolo
Born  11/2/1991
Height  6-2
Weight  226
College  Eastern Illinois
 
Notes:
2013 Walter Payton Award winner has become the face of the FCS draft class ... While following in the footsteps of former EIU quarterback Tony Romo, Garoppolo has risen on draft boards after strong weeks at the East-West Shrine Game, where he was named the offensive most valuable player, and the Senior Bowl ... Generally considered a second-round draft choice ... Ohio Valley Conference offensive player of the year passed for 5,050 yards and 53 touchdowns as a senior ... Measured at 6-foot-2, 226 pounds, Garoppolo is an intelligent decision maker who has an extremely quick release and a clean, compact delivery ... Doesn't have the arm strength of other QBs in the draft class or mobility to take off up the field ... Played mostly in shot-gun formation out of a spread offense at EIU and might have to adjust again to playing under center.
