Throws at pro day
Corral, who didn't throw at the 2022 NFL Scouting Combine as he recovered from a right ankle injury that he sustained in the Sugar Bowl, did so during Mississippi's Pro Day on Wednesday, ESPN.com reports.
The report notes that the QB threw well during a session that lasted roughly 30 minutes while also displaying good mobility, which indicates that the 6-foot-2, 212-pounder has moved past his ankle woes. At this stage, Malik Willis and Kenny Pickett seem likely to be the first two signal-callers taken in the 2022 NFL Draft, but it's still plausible that Corral ends up having his name called in the first round.
