Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach and current ESPN NFL analyst Jon Gruden hosted projected 2016 first round draft pick North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz recently at his “QB Camp.”

Gruden and an assistant both whacked Wentz with a pool noodle to prepare him for a busy pocket in the NFL.

The young quarterback was unfazed, as he delivered an accurate ball. Gruden then gave Wentz a good pop after he released the ball, perhaps simulating a tardy hit.
