Medicine Men: Combine’s top 10 tosses

As they do for the Nike SPARQ scores, at the Lake Michigan Football Report’s March 17 combine the medicine ball toss was used as the strength component rather than bench press. Judging from the top 10 scores recorded at the Grand Rapids event, it’s hard to think of a test better representative of the top talent in attendance. There are D1 linemen on the list, naturally. There are also a couple of QBs, including fourth-place Drew Marion. The 6-1, 196 Lake City junior threw 39’4. Marion really helped himself, showing a superior physical profile to match his outrageous 2012 season, in which he rab or passed for 50 TDs. His vertical leap of 35 1/2″ was the second best at the combine, his pro-agility drill of 4.4 seconds tied him for third best, and he ran a 4.8-second 40. The event was won by a guy who plays some QB, too, Lowell junior Kyler Shurlow, who also partnered it by tying for third with a 35″ vertical.
