QB Country: Quarterback Training & Development

Jones, Stockstill, Hodges begin NFL Draft Prep with QB Country

A trio of talented quarterbacks are preparing for the NFL Draft with QB Country.

For the next few months, Daniel Jones (Duke), Brent Stockstill (Middle Tennessee State) and Devlin Hodges (Samford) will participate in QB Country’s detailed training regimen designed to condition and challenge quarterbacks mentally, physically and specifically for the NFL Combine and Pro Day. This includes world-class strength, speed and nutrition programs and a strategic, disciplined approach to expanding each quarterback’s knowledge and skills. The goal is for each quarterback to become a more intelligent player, leader and thrower.

Jones is widely considered one of the top quarterback prospects in the upcoming draft.

Career highlights at Duke include:

  • 8,201 passing yards, 52 TDs, 1,323 rushing yards and 17 rushing TDs (36 career games)
  • 2-time Bowl MVP (30-41, 421 passing yards, 5 TDs at 2018 Independence Bowl)
  • Academic All-ACC, degree in economics
  • 2-year team captain and MVP
  • 2018 Senior Bowl Invitee (for the nation’s top NFL prospects)

Says Duke coach David Cutcliffe, who was QB Country founder David Morris’s quarterback coach at Ole Miss, “The best part about Daniel is he’s an even better young man than he is a football player. The bottom line is he is a special person.”

Morris agrees, adding, “Daniel has been training with us since sophomore year of high school and we are incredibly excited to help him prepare for the next step. He’s the real deal — Ivy League smart, blue-collar tough and a first-round talent.”

Jones is training with Morris at QB Country headquarters in Mobile.

Stockstill, who is training with Thomas Morris at QB Country Nashville, recently capped a remarkable career at Middle Tennessee State, where he broke multiple school and conference records.  His highlights include:

  • 2018 Conference USA MVP
  • NCAA top 30 all-time in TDs (106), passing yards (12,472 yards) and total offense
  • Top 10 all-time in C-USA history in touchdown passes, completions, attempts, passing yards, completion percentage, and 300-yard passing games
  • Invite to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl
  • Conference USA All-Academic Football Team

Says Morris, “Brent reminds us of another QB Country guy, 49ers quarterback Nick Mullens. He’s tough, strong, clutch accurate and a dynamic leader.”

Hodges, a QB Country trainee since high school, is training with Ben Neill at QB Country Birmingham. He finished his career at Samford as one of the most decorated FCS quarterbacks in history. Highlights include:

  • 2018 Walter Payton Award for the nation’s top FCS offensive player
  • FCS all-time leader in passing yards (14,584), attempts (1,896), and completions (1,310)
  • 2018 FCS passing and total offense leader
  • Three-time SoCon Offensive Player of the Year (2016, 2017, 2018)
  • FCS All-American honoree

Hodges, says Neill, “is an extremely hard worker and has the perfect QB personality. An NCAA career like Devlin’s doesn’t come around very often. He has the talent and all the intangibles that are required to succeed at the next level.”

Morris and his staff have designed a plan for each quarterback to lift their games and open doors to the NFL. 

“Getting to the NFL and succeeding there is the dream. These guys have done a ton of work to put themselves in position to have that opportunity. Our goal is have them prepared for the next big step — to be natural, confident and rhythmic with everything they’ll be asked to do for the Combine and Pro Day,” says Morris.
