Listen to Colin Cowherd give his NFL comparisons to the 2021 quarterback draft class as Colin lists their ‘high’, as in who they could become in a best-case scenario, or their ‘low’, as in who Colin thinks they’ll become if they end up underwhelming at the pro level.
High – TROY AIKMAN: “Looks the part, arm, accurate, and nobody disputes the talent. Day 1 he walks in and you’re like ‘THAT’S what a franchise quarterback looks like.' Bumpy for the first couple years until he’s surrounded by legitimate talent, but by about year 3 you’re like ‘we got ourselves a Hall of Fame talent.’”
Low – ANDREW LUCK: “Size, mobility, called an all-time talent, but the franchise holds him back, and he gets beat up with a bad o-line for a couple of years. You don’t blame him -- he doesn’t take the hit -- but maybe he just could never get the GM, the line, and the support right.”
