WATCH: 5-star QB commit Brock Vandagriff has his pro day at the Elite 11
Brock Vandagriff, those curls and his cozy ballcap haven been at the well-known Elite 11 national quarterback competition in Tennessee this week.
He measured this week at 6 feet, 3 inches and right at 205 pounds. The senior at Prince Avenue Christian comes into the event rated as the nation’s No. 2 QB prospect and the nation’s No. 13 overall prospect for 2021 on the 247Sports Composite ratings.
The three-day event concludes today. Vandagriff, like a lot of Georgia quarterbacks over the years, has turned some heads at the event. The tradition of future Bulldogs and the nation’s top quarterback competition now goes back more than 20 years.

- 2020: Brock Vandagriff
The Elite 11 is an inexact quarterback measuring tool. It doesn’t always indicate or project the top future pro, but it does identify a quality college prospect in all the major areas that will make them a Power Five starter and a potential NFL Draft pick down the road.
Andrew Luck and DeShaun Watson didn’t win the Elite 11. Neither did Jared Goff, Kyler Murray or Josh Rosen. But guys like Blake Barnett, Justin Fields, Tua Tagovailoa and Asiantii Woulard did.
Vandagriff stands at No. 4 overall heading into the final day of competition. He was at No. 3 overall heading into the second day. The Elite 11 this year is sorting its quarterbacks based on a blend of their junior season film and performance and what they do in camp this week.

Vandagriff got the chance to take part among the 20 quarterbacks on hand in a “Pro Day” workout that mimics what a future NFL prospect will be put through when he’s auditioning for NFL scouts.
It is a gauntlet designed to measure a quarterbacks accuracy, timing, velocity and computer through 19 throws that a professional quarterback will have to make on a regular basis.
Check out this Instagram live feed below for Vandagriff’s showing. His rep begins at the 9:48 mark of the embedded post below.

The Elite 11 “Pro Day” record still stands at 50. Ohio State commitment Kyle McCord won this year’s “Pro Day” competition with a score of 45 and leapfrogged Vandagriff into the No. 3 spot.
Each QB had 19 throws. They receive a score of 0-1-2-3 on each of 19 throws depending on the placement and velocity of the throw and whether or not it was caught. I’ve seen in a couple of places where Vandagriff unofficially was scored with a 32 for his effort.
Caleb Williams, the nation’s top-rated QB prospect for the 2021 cycle, scored a 34 on his “Pro Day” showing.
