Stafford takes the stage on Georgia's pro day

By  | 

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Matthew Stafford showed off his strong arm
Thursday for NFL scouts. It's an important step if the former
Georgia quarterback wants to realize his dream of being the No. 1
pick in next month's draft.

Stafford completed 45 of his 50 passes to four receivers on
Georgia's pro day with representatives for each of the 32
professional teams watching.

Stafford zipped passes to each sideline and threw deep routes.
He also threw while rolling to his right and left.

Jacksonville quarterbacks coach Mike Shula said he was impressed
by Stafford's throws.

Stafford was the star of the workout, but he wasn't the only
Georgia player who is expected to be picked in the first round.
Knowshon Moreno, who could be the first running back taken in the
draft, also attracted attention while posting times of 4.60 and
4.63 in the 40-yard dash.
