when senior and he's the kind of guy you think maybe late first early second round he had the broken wrist he's been out since early October [Applause] look how bad he wanted to get into the ends I'll lay it out all on the line for his team we have a second-round grade on them now and our recent mock draft had them in the late first round behind Paxton Lynch of Memphis and a Jared Goff from Cal only those two quarterbacks right now ahead of Wentz going into the draft process it's never been done before the bison football team wins its fifth consecutive FCS national championship team the first team to ever do so in NCAA history by following their fifth straight national championship North Dakota State returned to Fargo without senior quarterback Carson Wentz actually that night caught a flight out to just South LA Southern California with my agent the next day was just hang out get get acclimated get my new anyplace and then right away Monday was working out when spent two weeks in Irvine with new quarterback coach Ryan Lindley preparing for the Senior Bowl an invite he didn't have to ponder long there was really never a decision we made I just knew if I was healthy I was in play the biggest name you'll hear next week isn't Cam Newton or Tom Brady yet ready for it it's Carson Wentz here the quarterback southern North squad Carson Wentz the man that everyone in Mobile is talking about a two-time national champion at North Dakota State as part of the North roster Carson was coached by the Dallas Cowboys for five days in Mobile it's obviously a great opportunity for me to show not just my physical abilities to everybody here but my mental side of things that obviously the cowboy staff will get to get to see to a whole nother level here what is the one thing that you want to prove to NFL people this week that made out you without a doubt I want to prove that I can play at this level play at this speed you know the big knock is on the FCS you know ken can you adjust and I think I'm more than capable of doing that I'm just ready to prove it one more game on a picture-perfect beautiful day at Ladd people Stadium it's the north against the south it is college football's premier senior showcase Wentz finish the game six of ten sharing time with three other quarterbacks I went in there very confident you know I knew I could play but I left there even more confident and I really believe will be interesting to see if history repeats at the draft this year well the Cowboys take wins at number four immediately following the Senior Bowl it was back to California to continue preparation but for an entirely new challenge and welcome inside the home of the Indianapolis Colts Lucas Oil Stadium home once again to another NFL Scouting Combine you prepare I knew once I ran that 40 is probably the last time I was going to run a time 40 in my life realistically I understand it's not the most relevant thing but as a competitor I wanted to be the fastest the best jumper this and that and overall I thought it went pretty well posting the second fastest time in the 40-yard dash in three cone drill and the second longest broad jump when's his athletic ability was on display who made themselves money at this combine I got you know you got to go carson wentz colin sit in the hot seat will ya yes sir quarterbacks have to be a smart guy don't they they do not a wise guy a smart guy for sure what if its own he's gonna shot it now oh yeah and let me finish you didn't let me finish it was a meteoric rise to the top of draft boards and what the projections were did that surprise you and how did that happen I'm not really sure how it happened you know I just I've been in total control of what I can control you know focus on that my surprise not really you know I kind of expected and hoped for this and it was a goal people are going to say wow a small school level can he make the transition it was too fast of a rise telling you this guy has all the physical tools to develop into a good starter in the league and those guys don't last very long on night one of the draft following the combine whence return to Fargo where one more major hurdle awaited pro day yeah training here in Fargo it's been great you know I've had a couple guys actually that I've thrown to quite a bit and that are willing to come out and run some routes and everything and it's been great and then just being here you know at the end of the day I'm sleeping in my bed you know I'm back home with my dog and my friends and you know it's the days are still very busy but at the end of day I'm still going back to my place ahead of tomorrow's pro day Carson Wentz spoke with our Britt McHenry what is the anxiety level like for you right now pretty calm I'm not a big I'm getting nervous too often anymore I'm pretty confident and I just you know it's just football and I'm just excited to go out there and and throw it around with with some way so my buddies on my teammates former teammates now and just go have fun we're waiting to see 65 throws from that man Carson Wentz the man many people believe could be the second overall pick in the draft for me it's not Robinson and the Titans want to trade out of that first overall selection the night of April 20 and we're live from North Dakota State where Carson Wentz gets his pro day Ron Jaworski Mel Kiper and Todd McShea project wences game to the next level with Browns head coach Hugh Jackson in attendance NDSU's pro day was televised live on ESPN and the NFL Network you know it was hard not just to see that it was it was a spectacle there's tons of scouting media and miss NAB but for me it was like hey guys let's just go play catch we've gone through the script a couple times I mean how many times did we come out and played catch in the Fargodome you know and so it's just let's go play catch and and have some fun and you know we did that fall was about to eight feet from me and it was a laser as we like to say in balance and that was with a movement to the sideline so right now this has been outstanding so a long way to go but you can see the physical skill set that he has together when sand Lindley drafted a script of 65 passes of which he completed 63 I wanted to show just a little bit of everything that I can drop back on time complete some balls I can break loose off schedule and complete some balls I can throw on the run I can throw in some uncomfortable positions and just really show my athleticism Carson IBT went to coach you Jackson I said what do you think and he went oh my god with his big grin on his face so obviously he was impressed with your workout how did you feel away I thought went pretty well you know I was walk away thinking others I 1 or 2 that I could head back but notice what it is I thought it went well I'm enjoyed it guys were out there having fun I just explained catch so we didn't we didn't make it a big deal we just went out and played catch had some fun we talked about face of the franchise right an NFL quarterback is the face of a franchise and I want a guy and the NFL teams want a guy that's the first guy in the last guy to leave nosepass protections understands how to watch tape is a leader of men are you all those things because the intangibles at that level are almost more important than that right arm absolutely I agree hundred percent and I think I am all those things welcome to a Sports Center special Gruden's QB camp with Carson Wentz Carson Wentz North Dakota State bison yes sir welcome to Gruden's QB camp appreciate you having me I got to tell you it's a pleasure watching your offense I love it I mean I'm learning football yeah I mean I get ideas but from watching you guys it's good when I watch a play a concept at North Dakota State I can enter cut it with NFL concepts people are running the same plays in the league that you're running at your place with his performances at the Senior Bowl combine and pro day solidifying his status as a first-round pick Carson received an invite to the NFL Draft in Chicago but for the first time during the process this invite wasn't a foregone conclusion yeah the decision go to the draft initially I was like not sure you know I want to do I knew I wanted to be my family obviously I was like I could be back in Bismarck I could be in Fargo just hanging out but then you know I really realize it's a once-in-a-lifetime thing question with the Browns is always the same question whatever they do can they get it right I understand that that he's going to have faster and better receivers but the defenders are going to be faster and better too but I don't think you can look at one double-a and say get out of here here's the question how good is Carson Wentz that's really the question right the Rams went up to get Goff let's let's stop dancing around what who are they going to get they went up to get Jared Goff everyone welcome in NFL insider is just another ho-hum day here in the NFL and the lead-up to the draft now just eight days away here's our cast Adam Schefter Lewis Riddick Mel Kiper I'm Suzy Kolber do you think teams are hungry for quarterbacks for the second time in less than a week another blockbuster deal as the Eagles and the brown swapped places in the NFL Draft if you commit that you're going to invest in quarterbacks and you have people here who we think can teach quarterbacks as well as any in the National Football League sometimes you gotta put your money where your mouth is after surrendering third and fourth round picks this year a first-round pick next year and a second-round pick in 2018 the Philadelphia Eagles swapped places with the Browns and had their eye on number 11 been a long process but you know I've been saying throughout this whole thing has only happened once you only get time to meet all these different teams and put your best foot forward one time I recognize that I didn't make myself you know the good Lord blessed me with all these opportunities and I'm just here to make the most of them and you know I recognize that the talent and the abilities I have are from him and so it's like it's not about me it's not about giving me the glory it's about giving him the glory Carson hallie Roseman how we doing but you doing great how are you kid you ready be an eagle you're third yeah we're really excited to get you man it's gonna be great we're gonna have a lot of fun with the second pick 2016 NFL Draft the Philadelphia Eagles select Carson Wentz quarterback North Dakota State when's the loans five national championship rings became the highest drafted quarterback to come from a non FBS school but has kept his humility through it all you know it's been a long time coming it's been a long process and I couldn't ask for a better place to go all I can say I'm a Philadelphia Eagle Carson left Chicago for the City of Brotherly Love the day after being selected but knows that even though his road as a bison has come to an end his road is an eagle is just beginning I'm more than ready to go in and show what I can do and you know it's not my decision when I play or how quick I'll be on the field but I know I'm ready to just go attack it and you know try and learn as much as I can and do the best I can and hopefully sooner than later I'll be on the field but I'm just going to go attack and have the same approach I've had my whole career here and just get better every day and the chips will fall where they may you

    Philly sports is on the rise! Aaron Nola/Rhys Hoskins, Carson Wentz, Ben Simmons/Joel Embiid, and the flyers young kids (Provorov, Konecny, Patrick, and soon-to-be Hart). It's an exciting time to be a philly fan

    As an Eagles fan I just wanna say…Thank you North Dakota state! Not only is Wentz a great athlete, leader, and quarterback he's also not a jerk. So many big time athletes suck but he's as humble as they come. I hope Wentz wins mvp and the super bowl this year!

    Ohkay boys… We got Nick Foles back. We have the best young quarterback in the league and the best insurance policy money can buy. We set. Now,… I'd actually like to see Nick start against the Cowboys one game, just to stick it to them when he throws for 8 touchdowns.
