This weekend, two NFC West quarterbacks coaches reached out to Lobato as well as an offensive coordinator.

He completed 56.8 percent of his throws.
Lobato still needs more polich and accuracy, but is regarded as a quarterback with upside.

As a sophomore, he threw for 2,448 yards and 17 touchdowns.
