David Pindell – Noteworthy
University of Connecticut quarterback and Columbia, Md., native David Pindell has been flying under the radar among 2019 NFL Draft prospects, but he’s hoping to make a name for himself before the draft in April. Whether he makes a name for himself at quarterback remains to be seen. Pindell’s rushing ability stood out for a Connecticut team that finished 1-11 in 2018. He ran for 1,142 yards and 10 touchdowns while averaging more than five yards per carry. During a 38-30 loss at then-No. 21 South Florida in October, Pindell ran for 197 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries. His success on the ground has led to coaches and scouts suggesting he switch positions to garner more attention from NFL teams. “I can see why a lot of scouts like me changing my position because I ran the ball more than a lot of quarterbacks do and I was looking pretty good doing it,” Pindell said on Glenn Clark Radio Feb. 25. “I’m open to anything. I’ll go out there as a quarterback, but if they ask me to run a couple routes as wide receiver I’ll do that as well.” – Press Box
