QB Country NFL Draft Prep trainee Davis Mills “crushes” Pro Day performance
The reviews are in for former Stanford quarterback Davis Mills’ NFL Pro Day and they are glowing. Mills, a QB Country NFL Draft Prep trainee, delivered a sterling performance despite steady wind and rain, impressing scouts with his accuracy, arm strength, and mobility.
Said Daniel Jeremiah of the NFL Network, “He answered the bell. A lot of pressure on Davis Mills with a limited number of starts (11), no combine, no all-star game opportunities, this was his one shot, and I thought he crushed it. He crushed it from the testing numbers that we got, and I thought it was a clean, really pure throwing session that he put on in the rain. The day could not have gone any better for Davis Mills.” (More on NFL.com)
Mills completed 50 of 54 passes and showed off his athletic ability in the 40-yard dash by clocking an unofficial 4.58 seconds. Prior to his Pro Day, Mills had been generating growing buzz and was already considered a Day 2 prospect by draft analysts. Most believe he increased his stock with his Pro Day performance.
Reese’s Senior Bowl Executive Director Jim Nagy, who saw Mills throw while he was in Mobile preparing for the NFL Draft with QB Country founder David Morris, shared on social media that Mills is a “Powerfully built athlete that can move and rip it. Starting to generate some buzz now around his Pro Day and it’s justified. Mills is Day 2 guy that teams could hit on as starter.”
Morris, who prepared 2019 first round pick Daniel Jones for the Draft and his “flawless” Pro Day believes Mills has what it takes to thrive at the NFL level.
“I had an NFL QB coach tell me it was the most impressive Pro Day they’ve ever seen,” said Morris. “In the rain and nearly perfect. He never complained about a wet ball, never looked at his hands or asked for a towel. What you’re getting in Davis Mills is a pro — a mature kid that knows what it takes to play quarterback in the NFL. He’s a student of the game. He’s a competitor with tons of confidence. On the field he’s a natural — great athlete and feet and a beautiful stroke. He’s a starting NFL quarterback.”
Stanford coach David Shaw concurred, “You see the ball pop off his hand, the deep balls and underneath throws. There’s something natural that you have to see in an NFL quarterback. I think Davis has that.”
