So does velocity really matter at the combine. Since 2008 it has been measured. I have found he average velocity speed of the football to be around 54.80. Since Deshawn Watson hit 49 mph there has been debate about if it really matters. I say so far it does, but not enough years have passed for us to really say it is a given metric to predict success in the NFL. Only Drew Brees and Tyrod Taylor lacked that velocity. But Tyrod Taylor does struggle with his deep ball. Drew Brees compensates with a high release point.
Green is very good, yellow around avg, and then range and the red are lower velocities.
