Elite 11: Grading Every Quarterback in the Day 3 Accuracy Gauntlet

SI All-American

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -- The final day of the 2020 Elite 11 Finals did not go as planned. Originally, the group of 20 quarterbacks was scheduled to compete with wide receivers and defensive backs in a 7-on-7 tournament.

But with inclement weather hovering around throughout the three-day event, event times and activities changed on the fly. On day three, instead of taking the fields for 7-on-7, the group of 20 quarterbacks instead competed in an accuracy gauntlet inside a local indoor practice facility.

The accuracy gauntlet was graded by Elite 11 based on time throwing at each of the eight targets with a maximum of 30 seconds at each station - the goal being the lowest time. For every throw that a quarterback hit the target, two seconds would be deducted from their end time. 

Sports Illustrated All-American took the next step in grading quarterback accuracy on a point scale from 1-3, with a one equating to a total miss, a two for hitting the target, and a three for getting the ball through the target hole - a "money" throw. Our tiebreaker for multiple quarterbacks with the same score is based on throw count: The fewer the passes, the more efficient the quarterback was in this drill.

Below, you can find out grades on the 20 quarterbacks from the day, along with their average score, a breakdown of their throws, and Elite 11-confirmed times.
