Andy Dalton is popular. He was in Los Angeles last week, appearing live on the NFL Network.
The TCU quarterback already has worked out privately for the Browns, Patriots, Bears and Chiefs, and he has visits scheduled for Cincinnati, Minnesota, Tennessee and San Francisco.
“I’m all over the place,” Dalton said in a telephone interview. “It is kind of like recruiting. It’s been a lot of fun, just to get the chance to work out for teams. This is something I’ve always dreamed of doing, and so I’m trying to enjoy the whole process. But I am kind of getting to the point where I’m ready for the draft to get here.”
Dalton, who will watch the draft at his home in Katy with family and friends, has seen his draft stock rise. He could be selected as early as the second round, according to scouts.
“The Rose Bowl game helped,” Dalton said. “I think that kind of got people thinking I can play. That was my goal to come out and get better and better and show teams what I’m able to do and hopefully a lot of them will like me.”
