Cody Fajardo is a sleeeper

With names like Marcus Mariota and Jamies Winston on the table, not often will you hear the name Cody Fajardo. But today, he showed up in a big way. He tied Brett Hundley with a 4.63 40 yard dash time, which was not shocking being that he rushed for over 3,000 yards in addition to his 9,000 passing. What was a pleasant surprise was his throwing mechanics, footwork, and ability to adjust to different receivers. He showed great poise and made his case for a late round backup. A team will invest in this play-making quarterback.

Way behind on DVR, but somebody is going to draft Cody Fajardo and be happy they did.

Brandon Bridge might have been the most intriguing QB so far, but not the best – that was Brett Hundley, to me. Cody Fajardo not far behind.
