    Below is an article from the Tampa Bay paper about Leak, but its news about Toby Korrodi makes him seem the kind of sleeper that could be really good. (Guess I'm a pushover for quick, accurate QBs from small schools who went to high school in San Antonio.) I've also included some information gleaned from Google.


    Article: Leak’s Workout Throws Won’t Silence His Critics

    INDIANAPOLIS - Little-known Toby Korrodi of Central Missouri State is a good example of how a combine workout can help a player improve his draft status.

    Korrodi was easily the most impressive quarterback in his group of throwers during workouts Sunday. He showed good accuracy and great zip, topping all passers in the ball-speed drill by recording a 63 mph pass.

    That's almost 5 mph faster than the best ball that Ohio State's Troy Smith threw and more than 7 mph faster than the best ball that Michigan State's Drew Stanton threw.

    Brady Quinn of Notre Dame did not throw and Florida's Chris Leak might wish he hadn't. During his workout Sunday, Leak only confirmed reports that suggest he has marginal arm strength.

    While he did throw a couple of very nice balls, including one that he dropped right into the hands of his target on a 40-yard corner post route, his throws lacked eye-popping zip.

    His targets had to slow down to make catches on one go route and one 15-yard in-route, and his second throw on the corner post fell a step short of the receiver.

    His accuracy was not superb, but Leak did hit most of his targets either in the chest or head high with his throws. No one had to reach for his throws, but several had to slow down to get back to them.

    Leak looked best in the gauntlet drill, in which he hit targets running quickly across the field from 5 yards away. He did seem to throw a very catchable ball, but it was easy to see why scouts believe his arm strength will be an issue at the next level.

    RUN, CALVIN, RUN: Georgia Tech WR Calvin Johnson continues to create a buzz. He did so Sunday by running a 4.35-second 40-yard dash.

    Johnson said Saturday that he was sure he'd run at least a 4.4 40 and he clearly beat those expectations.

    His eye-popping speed aside, Johnson wasn't the fastest receiver. Yamon Figurs of Kansas State (4.30) and Jason Hill of Washington State (4.32) ran faster.

    ONE FOR THE BOOKS: History was made at the combine Sunday when two groups of 15 reporters were allowed to sit in on workouts for an hour.

    It was the first time since the combine has been held at the RCA Dome that reporters have been allowed to watch workouts live.

    The 30 reporters were among 385 credentialed for this year's event. Players participating totaled 327 this year.

    Overview and Analysis

    Korrodi has the size scouts are looking for in a QB he has the arm strength to go along with it. He might be the biggest sleeper among quarterbacks this season. Most do not know about him because he transferred from Northern State and he has never been an All-American at the D2 level. He is actually married and has three children. He has two sons and a daughter. Korrodi is a real family man who is very mature for an incoming rookie. He will intrigue pro personnel directors and all-star game selection committees with his size, production, and arm strength. He is not very fast so teams like Atlanta who are looking for a mobile quarterback will probably not rank him as a draftable player. He is expected to be a pure drop back passer and not a dual threat. Expect Korrodi to possibly surprise and not only earn a combine invite but also hear his name called in the late rounds (6th-7th).

    QB Korrodi backs out Schurig: Recruitment of Korrodi 'not

    Toby Korrodi

    will transfer to CMSU instead of Washburn

    By Ken Corbitt


    Toby Korrodi, the transfer quarterback Washburn signed last month, apparently has reversed his decision and will now play at MIAA rival Central Missouri State.

    Korrodi played two years at Northern State, leading the Wolves to the Mineral Water Bowl last season where they lost to Washburn, 36- 33. A coaching change at Northern State led to Korrodi's departure from the South Dakota school, and Washburn coach Craig Schurig announced on May 6 that the junior-to-be had signed a scholarship agreement with the Ichabods.

    The scholarship agreement, unlike a national letter of intent, is non-binding. Family matters reportedly were behind Korrodi's decision to back out of the deal with Washburn and go to Central Missouri.

    "We signed Toby in early May and late in the month he said he had changed his mind," Schurig said Wednesday. "I think the living conditions Central Missouri could provide was a factor. He is married with two children and another child on the way, and Central had three-bedroom housing on campus. He preferred to live on campus rather than off-campus, which is what we could provide."
