Draft Scout Robert Marve News
03/05/13 - 2013 Purdue Pro Day: Robert Marve‘s college football odyssey could still net an opportunity in the NFL. Marve (6-foot-1 1/8, 211 pounds), one of the most-sought-after players coming out of high school, originally committed to Alabama but attended Miami (Fla.) instead. Later, Marve transferred from Miami to Purdue, where an injury-ravaged college career netted him a sixth year of eligibility in 2012. During the March 1 workout in West Lafayette, Ind., Marve displayed a great arm during position drills, a performance that could earn the quarterback a longer look from NFL teams as a potential rookie free-agent pickup.
Marve - who was not at the NFL Scouting Combine - ran the 40-yard dash in 4.78 and 4.84 seconds, had a 9-foot-5 broad jump and 27 1/2-inch vertical jump, ran the short shuttle in 4.32 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.15 seconds. He also performed 22 strength lifts of 225 pounds (which would have been the best among QBs at the combine). - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
03/05/13 - 2013 Purdue Pro Day: Marve, who made the trip back to West Lafayette after training in Florida, is hoping to get an opportunity in the NFL, whether that be via draft or free agency. But without going to the Combine, Marve's had only the Pro Day and an all-star game to show scouts what he has.
"I want to show them I'm smooth when I throw, that I can adapt when I throw and obviously I want to show what I look like when I throw on the run," he said. "That was one of my strongest suits coming into college. That's something that I've built up and I wanted to show them I could be in the pocket also. I felt I did a good job, got a couple more workouts to do. Every time you go through a workout, learn something and get better at it. I improved today and want to keep improving."
Marve regional combine scheduled for March 9 in Tampa and will work out for a couple other teams. He's just hoping for a chance to continue his playing career. "I'm going to work as hard as can and let God take care of the rest," he said. "Everyone always wants to know 'What do you think? What's going on?' Anything that happens is the right answer for me. We all have different roads in life and I'm happy with anything that happens." - Kyle Charters/Stacy Clardie, GoldandBlack.com
03/05/13 - 2013 Purdue Pro Day: Marve, a former top recruit out of the state of Florida, felt he had a lot to prove Friday. He was only a part-time starter in his final season at Purdue and because of injury has little game film, comparatively, to others. "I thought I did well, the ball came out," he said. "It's frustrating sometimes because you train, train, train, but then you throw to different receivers to the timing of it (is off). But it was a good day overall. I thought the ball whistled out of my hand pretty well and showed them my knee was OK, so that's always a plus. And there was a lot of questions. "Obviously I didn't have the career over a long period of time that I wanted to have," he said. "But I thought I played very strong this year when I played. I played well early and thought I played very strong through the end of the year. I went out on my own terms and went out happy. And I went out considerably healthy." - Kyle Charters/Stacy Clardie, GoldandBlack.com
03/05/13 - 2013 Purdue Pro Day: The questions about Marve's knee come often. All he can do is answer. Usually, that is verbally, but on Friday he got to do so visually. "Everyone asks about it," he said, "because they have this image, I think. Then, they come out here and see me and I'm flowing normal, just like a game. Everyone said the same things during game 'Oh, he's not going to be OK.' But then I'm out there flowing normal." Marve came away from his Pro Day experience feeling good about his performance. He lifted, ran the 40 and did the agility drills, and he did each without a brace on his surgically repaired knee. "My knee feels fine," he said. "I mess around all the time and don't wear a brace unless I'm in a game and I kind of do that for the doctors, so they'll put me out there. I feel good, I feel strong and I'm going to continue my training." - Kyle Charters/Stacy Clardie, GoldandBlack.com
03/05/13 - 2013 Purdue Pro Day: Of course, everyone asked about Marve’s knee. He tore the ACL in his left knee for the third time in September at Notre Dame. He returned to the lineup less than a month later and took over the starting job during the final four games, leading the Boilermakers to a second straight bowl game.
“I feel good, feel normal,” Marve said about his knee. “I don’t have any pain, I don’t swell, I don’t have any kind of indication of ‘Oh, slow down’ or nothing like that. You saw the drills - you can’t tell me different from anybody else. I’m going to keep going.” - Mike Carmin, The Muncie Star Press
