LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- In the Under Armour Combine, the pressure is on the signal-callers.

"There's more responsibility, I think," quarterback Connor Mitch from Raleigh (N.C.) Wakefield said of participating in such events. "You have to get the ball in the right hands and make plays. That's the job of quarterbacking."

That's not always an easy task at elite events. While most high school quarterbacks are lucky to have one BCS prospect to throw to, there were countless Saturday at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.
