However, the reps do not care whether the receiver catches the pass or not. All they are interested in is seeing the quarterback’s footwork while they are running the 3-step drop, the 5-step drop and the 7-step drop.
Try telling this to some of the idiots on this the board. Spent quite a bit of time arguing this point over the last 2 combines. They want to see your drop, accuracy, arm strength, touch and mechanics. Period. They know the QB has no control over how well the WR does or does not run his route. If the ball ends up where the receiver should be, and the receiver isn't there to catch it, the receiver looks bad, not the QB.
