Q&A with 6'5", 225 pound ex-University at Albany quarterback Dan Di Lella,
If you are from the Northeast Region you are probably aware of the Young Gun Dan Di Lella of Albany University. Di Lella has been very impressive over the past few months since getting into Test Performance. Even though Di Lella has been an impressive quarterback, people look over him because he is a small school prospect. What they donít realize is that Di Lella has the arm strength and intelligence to be a very successful quarterback in the NFL. He already performed at the Fordham pro day and really drew the NFL scouts interest. I talked with one scout of the New York Giants that said, "Di Lella looks just as good if not better than guys like Aaron Corp of Richmond, and Bo Levi Mitchell of Eastern Washington". That is a huge success for Dan, and he will still have a few more events to show off his arm strength. One event will be the Rutgers Pro Day in a couple days and the Super Regional Combine on March 30th and 31st in Detroit, Michigan.
Di Lella has an extremely powerful arm and NFL size. He has been training with former Jet/Dolphin Chad Pennington and NY Giants quarterback Scott Brunner who made Joe Flacco into a first-round pick. Brunner believes that Di Lella has a huge upside as he improves his mechanics every day. Several scouts have shown interest over the past couple of weeks.
