Three years ago, a one-time baseball prospect from a non-BCS school impressed scouts by throwing 59 miles-per-hour at the NFL Combine.
Colin Kaepernick seriously boosted his draft stock with his strong performance in Indianapolis and he ended up starting in the Super Bowl in his second year in the league.
After several near-misses, a prospect has finally broken Kaepernick's velocity record at the NFL Combine.
Former Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas recorded a 60 miles per hour throw at the NFL Combine, which is believed to be the fastest toss since throws were recorded seven years ago.
Granted, many of the top quarterback prospects over the years haven't thrown at the Combine (this year Teddy Bridgewater, Derek Carr and Johnny Manziel all sat out that portion), but Thomas' mark is still impressive. A few prospects have matched Kaepernick's mark -- in 2012 Brandon Weeden and Kirk Cousins were clocked at 59 miles per hour, last year Tyler Bray and Zac Dysert each hit 59 -- but not one has surpassed it.
Now that Thomas has established his arm strength, he'll have to show scouts that his accuracy is improved. Decision-making plagued Thomas during his career at Virginia Tech, and in 2013 he threw 16 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.
