A lot of potential NFL quarterbacks in this class.
Andrew Luck, Matt Barkley,
Landry Jones, etc. Another unheralded guy to watch for is Chandler Harnish of
Northern Illinois. Harnish has NFL tools and possesses a lot of the same
qualities as Aaron Rodgers.
Obviously he is not even in the same ballpark as Rodgers right now,
as Rodgers is the best quarterback on the planet. However, Harnish
reminds me a lot of him because of his mobility and ability to throw
accurately to receivers on the run.
I believe Harnish will move up the draft board after a solid combine
and be selected in the second or third round. He will be a guy to follow for
sure. One knock on Harnish will be his level of competition, but the MAC
has produced some solid NFL quarterbacks over the years.
I hear that guy Ben Roethlisberger is pretty good.
Yes, he has a noodle arm, but that is not he didn't have success...Matt simply never put the time in. He was never the first one to practice or the last one to leave, which is essential for an NFL quarterback trying to start a career. (in this case for the 2nd time!)
Had Leinart ever put the work in, he could have been a left handed Chad Pennington, which is not a bad thing.
This is a rumor on ESPN, and if this ever did happen.....you can pretty much forget about throwing the ball against the New York Jets..that would be absolutely sick.....
I continue to question how this guy was the number one overall pick. Yes, he's got a strong arm, can make all the throws, etc....His decision making has always been questionable at best and he often tries to make plays that aren't there. I do not think his mental grasp of the position is strong enough to warrant the number one overall pick. I know it was the SEC, but the guy didn't even dominate in college. Even Joey Harrington put up numbers in college! I do not see Stafford ever taking the Lions anywhere, but maybe that is just me...
