Jon Gruden’s yearly grilling and mentoring of draft-eligible quarterbacks in ESPN’s "Gruden QB Camp" has become somewhat of an annual ritual for analysts and fans alike. This year’s series will be more intriguing than ever for Texans faithful as Gruden sits down a whopping nine NFL prospects throughout the spring. The complete list, in alphabetical order, is Blake Bortles, Tajh Boyd, Teddy Bridgewater, Derek Carr, Jimmy Garoppolo, Jordan Lynch, A.J. McCarron, Johnny Manziel, and Aaron Murray.
If you have never seen an episode of "Gruden’s QB Camp," you are doing yourself a disservice. Take a look at Jon’s film session with Seahawks signal caller Russell Wilson below to get an idea what these kids are in for.
An ESPN press release announced a teaser in tonight’s 6:00 PM EST edition of SportsCenter that a pretty sizeable portion of Texas should be interested in.
Manziel, who spent Thursday with Gruden, is the first quarterback to visit for QB Camp. An excerpt of his film session will air tonight on the 6 p.m. ET edition of SportsCenter. Remaining players are scheduled to work with Gruden in March and April. (Photos of Gruden with Manziel via ESPN Images.)
Gruden’s QB Camp special on Manziel is scheduled to premiere Thursday, March 27 (7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN), the same day the Aggies quarterback will participate in his individual Pro Day in College Station, Texas. Most QB Camp specials will air on Tuesdays, beginning in late April at 9 p.m. on ESPN. Shows will also re-air on ESPN2, ESPNU and ESPNEWS leading up to the 2014 NFL Draft. The entire QB Camp program schedule will be released in March.
BRB will be keeping a close eye on every episode of Gruden’s QB Camp starting in the last week of March. I can only hope we can get through it with minimal "Spider 2 Y Banana" jokes.
