Auburn’s Malzahn Throws His QBs To The (Pass-Rushing) Wolves

gfx - they said itWith four quarterbacks competing for the starter’s job at Auburn, first-year coach Gus Malzahn did a little thinking outside the box yesterday.  For the Tigers’ first scrimmage of fall camp, Malzahn had his signal-callers don normal jerseys as opposed to the non-contact jerseys quarterbacks usually wear this time of year:

 

“The big thing is, when you are evaluating guys, and you’ve got four of them, you have to narrow things down, and the way to do that is to go live.  This is a pretty unique situation in fall…

Tackle football.  Real football.  Just like you’re gonna see the very first game…

Every quarterback got a chance to run.  Of course, some of them dropped back to pass, and we got a chance to see how they handled the pocket, and some of them took off running, and some of them reacted differently, so it was good for us to see that…

The best way to evaluate is through scrimmages, real football.  People react different.”

 

According to Al.com, the Auburn defense picked off three passes and recorded “several sacks” during the live drills.
