At Midwestern State University last year, quarterback Layton Rabb tore up Division 2, becoming the first quarterback in the school’s history to record two 3,000-yard seasons, while being named the J.W. Rollins/Lone Star Conference Offensive Player of the Year. Now Rabb is making his case at the NFL Scouting Combine that his future resides in the pro ranks.
Those who have watched the Llano, Texas, native over the years know you never count him out. At MSU, Rabb displayed pro-level skills on his way to leading the team to an 18-3 record during his time at the D2 school. He was a two-time Harlon Hill trophy nominee, and earned D2CCA All-Super Region Four first-team honors during his record-setting career.
A team smart enough to choose Rabb at the NFL draft on April 25-27 will get a player with superior arm strength, pro-level size (6’4”, 215 lb), and an elevated football IQ—qualities that will help him snag a pro job even as a walk on. If history is any guide, that’s exactly how it may play out. Rabb was a walk on at MSU, and ended up as one of the greatest athletes the program has ever produced.
As he continues working hard on reaching his goals, Rabb will depend on Kaged Muscle products to help give him the physical edge he needs to become another small-college NFL QB in the mold of Ben Roethlisberger. See more below on his intense workout and nutrition regimen.

LAYTON’S NUTRITION ADVICE
Layton is bulking up the right way to power his way onto an NFL roster. “I am on a weight-gaining program, so my calorie goal is 5,500 calories per day,” he says. “This consist of 245 grams of protein, 685 grams of carbs, and 200 grams of fat. I eat 4-5 meals a day as well as use Kaged Muscle products preworkout, during workouts, and postworkout to try and reach my calorie and macro nutrition goals.”
LAYTON’S TRAINING ADVICE
Like a lot skill-position athletes, Layton has to juggle traditional workouts with targeted drills. All in all, it’s high volume. “I'm looking to increase my power output and strength, as well as increase my speed and agility,” he says. “I’m running five times a week and lifting four times a week Along with the lifting and running, I also perform quarterback positional training 4-5 times a week.”
