Here’s what Indianapolis Colts assistant director of college scouting Matt Terpening saw in former Texas Longhorns quarterback Sam Ehlinger during the NFL Draft lead up.

“I’ve seen him play twice in his career live and just over the years, the guy’s played a ton of football, he’s played at a high level,” Terpening said, according to a recent report in 247Sports. “And I’ve seen it up close. He’s got energy and juice to him. He can rally his teammates. The thing I like about him is his poise and instincts. He’s always calm under pressure. And then he’s an athlete. He can beat the rush with his feet, he’s got quickness, he can make plays downfield and then he knows how to carry his team and bring his team back from behind. We’re totally excited to get him where we got him.”

“He’s a great kid, he’s got great intangibles, there’s some guys on that Texas staff that I’ve known for 10, 12 years that just rave about him. So to get him where we got him is huge.”
