The NFL draft’s best-known quarterbacks still must pass upcoming tests

In what’s deemed as a shaky 2010 quarterback class, the top prospects each have something to prove in pre-draft examinations the last four weeks: 

1. Sam Bradford, Oklahoma. Coming off shoulder surgery, he must prove he can make every NFL-type throw during his pro day Monday. Projection: Rams in Round 1.
 
2. Jimmy Clausen, Notre Dame. Recovering from two torn ligaments in his right big toe, he must show good footwork and mobility during his April 9 workout. In interviews, he must prove he can be a good teammate and leader. Projection: Vikings in Round 1.
 

3. Tony Pike, Cincinnati. Past his pro day and now in meetings and private workouts, Pike must convince teams that he has the greatest potential despite lack of pedigree. Projection: Redskins in Round 2.

 
4. Tim Tebow, Florida. Arm strength and motion remain big concerns, but work ethic, desire and intangibles can’t be ignored. Projection: Browns in Round 3
