FOXSportsNext breaks down the QB action from day one at the 2012 AstroTurf NFLPA Collegiate Bowl. Here is how we ranked the six arms. Check out the report!

1. Jacory Harris (Miami) – National Team

Heads and shoulders above the rest. Got so many throws I thought his arm was going to fall off. He struggled with his accuracy in college, but jumped right in and started clicking with a brand new set of the receivers and delivering money balls. He did check in at under 200 pounds, but outside of that it was likely exactly the type of performance his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, was looking for him to have.

2. Bo Levi Mitchell (Eastern Washington) – American Team

One of the surprises on the day. He moves his feet well and is athletic enough that he can get outside of the pocket to deliver an accurate ball. He has an adequate, but not necessarily a NFL strong type of arm. He struggled with accuracy at times, but does possess some tools.

3. G.J. Kinne (Tulsa) – National Team

Kinne did not really get off to a quick start, but when full team got rolling his arm started to warm up as well, and had a couple of the days best throws. When he has everything right he does a deliver a good ball.

4. Jarrett Lee (LSU) – American Team

Looking forward to seeing how he throws on day number two, because he just played in a game the day before showing up for practice, and his arm may have not been 100% ready to go. He had by far the quickest release of the group, but fell short on the deep balls and threw too many interceptions.

5. Nick Stephens (Tarleton State) – American Team

Stephens never really seemed to get in the groove. He missed on too many passes short and long. He showed some nice pop on the intermediate routes early on, but had a hard time squaring himself up when trying to work outside the pocket.

6. Patrick Witt (Yale) – National Team

Witt had the weakest arm of the group, and in a group of arms that do not necessarily scream NFL that is going to be rough to overcome. He does makes good choices with the ball, but the arm, strength factor will be tough to overcome.
