Georgia QB Stetson Bennett impressed NFL scouts at the 2023 scouting combine in Indianapolis today.
Bennett measured in at 5-11, 192 pounds, and ran an unofficial 4.67 40-yard dash, along with a 33.5″ vertical and 9′ 10″ broad jump.
Bennett saved his best for last, putting on a show during the throwing drills, impressing the NFL Network analysts.
“He’s had a great day,” draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah said. “From running well. He threw beautiful deep balls. He is very under control. It is obviously not too big for him here, he has been on such big stages. With Stetson Bennett, I think he has been the big winner, if you are talking overall performance for the day, who has been impressive, Stetson Bennett has had a really nice day.”
Quarterbacks were measured in throwing velocity and Bennett tied Kentucky’s Will Levis for the strongest throw at 59 miles per hour. He would then go throw for throw with Levis, considered a top 10 overall prospect in the draft, on deep throws.
Bennett led Georgia to back-to-back National Championships while becoming the first player to surpass 4,000 passing yards in a single season.
In Georgia’s 65-7 dismantling of TCU in the College Football Playoff title game, Bennett would complete 18-of-25 passes for 304 yards, four touchdowns, and no interceptions in the game, rushing three times for 39 yards and two touchdowns. He would earn offensive game MVP.
With 8,428 career passing yards, Bennett ends his collegiate career fourth in program history. He is fifth in program history in career touchdown passes (66).
