Mike Mayock: Paxton Lynch one of five strongest arms in league

There is no questioning that former Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch is one of the most-hyped signal-callers in the 2016 NFL Draft. One reason why he is so sought-after is because of his arm strength.

He has proven to have a very strong arm in the process leading up to the draft and that has led to a ton of praise from analysts around the league. Mike Mayock even said that he would likely be considered one of the top five strongest arms in the NFL.

This is a huge bit of praise for the young quarterback. Lynch already has a lot going for him as he stands at six-foot-seven, but now that he is considered the strongest quarterback in the draft, he could end up being a huge pickup for some team in the league.

After throwing for nearly 8,900 yards during his career, Paxton Lynch has certainly proven that he can be a great quarterback, but now it is just a matter of where he ends up.
