SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo
says the toughest thing for pro scouts to measure in a college
player is how quickly he can think on his feet.
He said in college, quarterbacks usually have room to throw but
in the NFL, only about five throws a game aren't made without
someone on the quarterback. He says that's hard thing to adjust to.
Romo told about 350 people attending a Wednesday luncheon for
the College Football Hall of Fame that successful quarterbacks are
the ones who figure out how to throw in limited space.
Romo, who went undrafted when he came out of Division I-AA
Eastern Illinois after the 2002 season, has led the Cowboys to
three NFL playoff appearances in four seasons as a starter.
