Draft Watch: Christian Ponder Under The Gun

Florida State quarterback Christian Ponder says his shoulder is completely healed and despite the recent preseason Heisman buzz, his sole focus is on winning football games, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

There are big expectations on Ponder entering his senior season and it’ll be interesting to see how he responds playing in the spotlight after a shoulder injury ended his season in November last year.

It’s hard to gauge his current draft stock due to the fact that it will largely depend upon how his shoulder checks out medically. He also needs to prove that he can last the entire season and put those durability concerns to rest.

That being said, we currently have Ponder with a third round grade but answering the questions above and a strong senior season could possibly elevate him a round or two.
