“They had me do some three-step drop stuff, but it was mostly deeper drops and deeper throws. They had me throwing some long out routes, and some deeper comeback routes across the field," Lynch wrote. "They had me push the ball vertically on some seam routes and deep corner routes.

"They're very excited about the draft,” Lynch said. "You could tell there's a lot of energy in that building."
