I mean... go look up what mel kiper and ALL OF THE REST OF THE PUNDITS were saying about him. HE WAS THE NEXT JOHN ELWAY.
if that's not a sure thing, I really don't know what is. if you're going to use hindsight, use it evenly-- jamarcus russell was as well-thought of as ANY QB coming out not named luck or manning. where is he right now? good question--he's trying to lose weight so some team won't try him at ****ing left tackle
I agree with everything except Russell. Your premise in general I agree with, just maybe not the example. I never thought Russel would pan out and a decent amount of others felt the same. Then again I was hoping for it since he was going to OAK.
