College Football: WPSD-Paducah reported on its website Sunday night Murray State quarterback Casey Brockman and offensive lineman Roddy Tomlin recently signed with agents.
Brockman says after talking with his representatives, he’s optimistic about his chances of making an NFL team or at least make to training camp whether he’s drafted or taken by a team as an undrafted free agent.
Brockman added scouts do have questions about his ability to take snaps under center and being able to drop back and pass. He’s primarily worked out of the shotgun formation during his collegiate career. Brockman will have a chance to show his wares when he plays in the Raycom All Star game in Montgomery, Alabama January 19th.
