Stetson Bennett Turns Heads at NFL Combine
Stetson Bennett, the quarterback for the Georgia Bulldogs, impressed with his arm strength at the NFL combine, tying for the strongest throw with Kentucky’s Will Levis at 59 miles per hour. Bennett just wrapped up an impressive two-season stretch where he led the Bulldogs to back-to-back National Titles, becoming the first player in program history to surpass 4,000 passing yards in a single season.
In addition, Bennett had a standout performance in the College Football Playoff title game, where he went 18-of-25 passes for 304 yards, four touchdowns, and no interceptions. He also rushed three times for 39 yards and two touchdowns, and was named the offensive game MVP. Despite all the success, Bennett has faced some criticism for his behavior off-field, including an arrest for public intoxication and failing to play in the Senior Bowl.
Despite the criticisms, Bennett has the potential to do well in the NFL, especially after his impressive showing at the combine.
