NFL World Reacts to Joe Milton Launching a 70-Yard Pass at the Combine

Joe Milton showed off his elite arm strength at the NFL Scouting Combine and caught the attention of the NFL world this weekend.

Every year the NFL Combine proves to us just how insane of athletes these prospects truly are. From impressive bench press numbers to blazing fast 40 times, the Combine never seems to disappoint the masses. Such is the case for former Tennessee Volunteers quarterback Joe Milton, who stepped up and showed just how strong his arm is.

Naturally, the NFL world was amazed and reacted to the rocket arm on social media.

NFL World Reacts to Joe Milton’s Big Arm

What could be more fun than watching a quarterback uncork a perfectly thrown 70-yard pass?

Milton was able to dazzle the audience with his big arm, and when he was able to casually launch a deep ball perfectly downfield, the NFL world took notice.

ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter might have said it best, “Joe Milton III with the laser rocket arm.”

On the broadcast, NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah stated, “Yeah, that’s easy, that’s effortless, that’s perfect.”

NFL analyst Charles Davis chimed in with, “He’s just flicking the wrist right now,” also pointing out just how easy Milton made the throw look before Rich Eisen is heard saying how we all feel, “This is fun.”

Naturally, social media chimed in as well.

Brett Kollmann had a front-row view of the impressive feat and added context to just how absurd Milton’s arm strength truly is.

“Per @NextGenStats this throw traveled 73.5 air yards. For reference, the longest throw by air yards in the NFL over the last seven years was Josh Allen to Gabe Davis for 69.3 air yards in 2022. Unreal arm talent.”

The biggest names in NFL media were all in attendance and made sure to point out just how absurd this throw was.

“Was on the field for this. Jaws on the floor. Great throw from Joe Milton. Great video from @LanceZierlein.”

According to the Senior Bowl’s Jim Nagy, having Milton in Indianapolis every year to just dazzle fans with his big arm, may be the price of admission.

“#NFLCombine needs to bring back Joe Milton every year just to throw the ‘go’ ball.”

ESPN NFL Draft Analyst Matt Miller had an interesting way to describe Milton’s arm, and it makes a lot of sense.

“Joe Milton has a CANNON. Maybe a shotgun, because it’s not always accurate, but my god it’s powerful.”
