I can understand Young’s emotions towards that comment. The narrative surrounding Wilson off the field is such a lazy narrative.Yep, and Steve Young seemed irritated by that comment.
Trevor was projected to be the #1 overall pick 2 years prior to being drafted, so it shouldn’t have been a surprise seeing him drafted ahead of anybody.Not really, it's always 2-3 that don't pan out. I never understood how Wilson or Lawrence were ranked ahead of Fields. He faced better competition and was a multi-year starter. I guess everyone is looking for the next Mahomes.
I meant Trey, not Trevor. It was no surprise Trevor went #1.I can understand Young’s emotions towards that comment. The narrative surrounding Wilson off the field is such a lazy narrative.

Wilson benefited from Covid putting BYU and their “anyone anywhere” program in the limelight. He had a great season, so it wasn’t surprising to see him fly up the draft boards.
As good as Fields was at OSU, how many other OSU quarterbacks were just products of amazing talent all around them playing in a conference fielding 1 or 2 legit teams. Hesitancy to take him was understandable.
If the kid has a world of talent, he sure is hiding it. Where has he shown it? It hasn't been with the jets. He only had one year of great production at BYU. He hasn't played, but maybe 2 top 5 defenses at BYU, his only signature wins against top 20 teams was Bosie St and USC team. Hell, Ian Book beat two top 10 teams in one yr. , and three top5 teams at ND.It is interesting that ever since the new CBA came out, and rookie contracts have been shrunk down to a fraction of what they once were, how quickly teams are willing to move on from guys 1 or 2 years in. This started a few years back with Justin Blackmon (to my remembrance), and is just getting bigger now that we are seeing the quarterbacks get shipped off.
I’m not looking to trade for Wilson if the Jets do decide to move on from him. He has a world of talent, but we have nobody here on this staff who has shown that they can develop talent. If Wilson were to go to a team where he could sit behind a real pro, and take it all in, then you could have a solid quarterback on your hand.
For all his comparisons coming out in the draft, him pulling a Steve Young (going from TB To SF behind Montana) would be his best option.
Yep and there isn't really one I like in this year's draft either.Is it just me, or does it seem like there are a lot more flame-out 1st round QBs recently?
Bryce Young has played pretty well, his offensive line hasn't but he's been good and Alabama would have several more losses without him.Yep and there isn't really one I like in this year's draft either.
Young hasn't played well this year. Not so sure about Hooker. With Stroud, I think he is like other OSU QBs a beneficiary of outstanding WRs.
Last year he had Wilson and Olave. Both are balling in the NFL.This year he has Marvin Harrison Jr.
Even if Saints still had this year's first round. None of those guys would fall past the the 7th or 8th pick
N.O will probably end up.with 6 wins which would put them away out of that range
I think there are only two conferences in today's college football that produce NFL quality QBs on regular basis. Big 12 and SEC. They produced 13 current starting QBs.Never liked Wilson.He fit a profile that owners liked and it got him over drafted. How anyone draft a QB top 5 with no real leadership skills or played against any real competition is beyond my understanding.
