The NFL draft is this week and former Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden is determined to show that despite being the oldest quarterback in the group, he might be one of the most accurate.
Weeden took the spotlight on "Sport Science" this week to show off his accuracy and velocity by hitting moving clay pigeons with a football. According to the show, Weeden's throws were going 48 miles per hour.
Yeah, it's as awesome as it sounds.
Weeden said on Twitter it took him seven tries to hit the first one, but after that, he hits four of five, which is a pretty spectacular feat.

Yeah, but clay pigeons have horrendous yards after catch.

No. The clay pigeons weren't ducking out of bounds.

Clay pigeons looked to actually catch the ball.

Very un-Ginn like.

This is pretty impressive. A couple of the comments on the bottom are about people thinking the Dolphins should look at him instead of Tannenhill.

This is the guy between arm strength and uncanny accuracy who ostensibly would fit Philbin's WC offense to a "T" !!!! Draft Floyd and then ante up as many chips as necessary to trade back up into the mid-high teens for Weeden!
