Quarterbacks in the Draft

It always seems that in the NFL draft the best QB’s from the college football year end up going late in the draft.  For example last year Tim Tebow  possibly the best college quarterback  all time went late in the first round.  What gets me mad is when they do the mock drafts on ESPN. Last year ESPN draft expert, Todd McShay said that Tim Tebow would not be a starter in the NFL for at least 2 years. Tebow proved him wrong by taking over the starting position  in week 15’s match up against the Oakland Raiders.

This year in the draft their saying that Cam Newton is a risk to draft.  That is one of the other things they said about Tim Tebow. Will Cam Newton have the same outcome that Tim Tebow had?

  1. Good question Ben. Although, there is just too many factors that can impact someone’s potential. Too many intangibles that just can’t be forecast. Look at Tom Brady. A late round draft pick, you know the rest of the story.Michael Jordan. Somebody told him he wasn’t good enough. It was the best thing that ever happened to him.Todd Marinovich. Couldn’t live up to the expectations. Time will tell with Cam Newton.

  2. Hi,

    Isn’t it strange that the experts watch more football than anyone, and it’s still hard to figure out who’s going to be a good quarterback? I love the idea of trying to figure out who’s right for which team. If I didn’t work in schools, I’d want to work for a team trying to figure out who’s going to be good and who isn’t.
    I like your blog, thanks for writing.

    Now you got me thinking… It is always interesting to me to see who is drafted when – where do you think he will go in the draft? Who do you think will be the first pick?
